Mariner cover on ebay - will it fit a clamshell?

Seen a cheap 1 piece cover for a mariner 75 on ebay - would this fit on my clamshell engine in order to make it look younger and be simpler to use - or is this more bargain basement folly??

I don't think so as you will need the tray (cover sits on it) and that means the power head has to come off to fit the tray, even then it may not be a straight swop. I foresee Loads of work and hassle.

No nead to take the powerhead off to do that. But you will need the bottom cowl trays, and a different type of seal. The Clam shell engines have a foam seal were as the bucket cowls have a shaped rubber seal for the lower cowl trays to sit in.
