yam 50 and yam 60 hp AL parts compatability, particularly trim tilt, bracket and leg.

Hi all, asking for a friend. he has a 60hp yam autolube that needs a new engine bracket/clamp trim tilt assembly (not sure what to call it) we know of a 50hp auto lube with a knackerd powerhead and were wondering if it was possble to either just swap over the head or change the relevant bits over.
O and a side question from me dos anyone know how hard it is to change a long/mid shaft engine to a short shaft engine suitable for a zapcat etc.

I think I'm safe in saying that any clamp / swivel / leg from about 50-90Hp should fit, providing it's of a similar vintage. I nearly fitted the PT midsection off a 75 to an old twin pot 55, but powerhread corrosion killed that project before I swapped them.

If it's any help, I have said clamp / swivel assy off a 75 still looking for a home. Pics here ......Garage clearout- engine & trailer bits
