If your unsure place yours on the transom using temporary bolt (it should sit just above the transom and not actually be resting on it) and see if they all line up (don't drill new ones or secure it just yet). Then check the cav plate is sitting lever or at very most 1 inch under the bottom of the transom.

What size of engine was fitted before, what size are you fitting ?

Keeping it simple, a 90 mariner was fitter and we are putting a 90 merc on so the holes should all up ok.

Assuming it was set up properly originally it strikes me you are all having a conversation about precisely "nothing".........

No, there are several different holes on an outboard bracket to allow you to adjust the height, the wrong height of the engine can affect performance a lot We would like to get as close to correct as possible as lifting a 170kg engine after it has been mounted is a pain, as is a poor first run with a new boat.

We are not having a conversation about "nothing" several of the posters have helped me a lot and I thank them for that.

Provided the Mariner was fitted correctly then the MERC should just drop right in place, just make sure it's not sitting on the transonic itself as discussed

A 90hp on a 5.2metre rib, I'd being fitting it with the cav plate at least 1" above the bottom of the running surface.

Ok Burt, giving you the benefit of the doubt and that English is not your native language I say again in big letters "ASSUMING IT WAS SET UP PROPERLY ORIGINALLY". Granted you can't necessarily assume that. In any case a simple search would have led you straight to the answer to your issue here.

Thank you for your 2nd rude and unhelpful post on a thread where I am simply asking for advice.

I am certain you know that English is my primary language. I presume marine engineering is not your occupation.

Having never seen which holes on which the outboard was set at and being that I do not have a time machine to go back and see what it was set at I thought I would ask a simple question on this forum. As I said, many of the replies have been very helpful, your comments have added nothing to this discussion.

B&O, I am very thankful for your help, you are obviously very experienced in what you are talking about and you have been kind enough to share your knowledge with me and from what I have read on the forums, with anyone who needs assistance.
