engine transom clamp

im just about to buy a new mariner 60efi and i am worried that the ptt clamp holes wont match up with the holes already drilled in to hold the engine in place. is every manufacturer plate diffrent, wots best to fill the holes in the transom if i have to drill new holes , the engine is off set so will the new one have to be set up like the old one, its going on a avon searider with flooding hull. is there any pictures online showing the clamp holes or dimentions of them.. also will my old steering cable fit into the engine tube so the steering styill works by pushing and pulling, i dont know the make of cable as its prety old ,,,, from the cable end you push it into the tube on the outboard bracket then tighten the holding nut ,,, then at the other end screw the push/pull rod on to the end of the cable then attach the lincage to that then the engine. hope this info helps .

Most of the major manufacturers use the same hole pattern. If your going for a similar sized motor to what was on there previously then the offset should still be about right.
