    Frontier how are you going to use that bell housing and coupling to make up to your gear. ? I 'm pretty sure that coupling and bell housing came off a outdrive.

    Yeah don't forget the starter has to run in reverse from the standard bottom mounted one. Did you ever find a fuel tank ?

    No, its the last major item I need. I found a new tank that needed a few inches off the length and fill moved, but it was $1G total.
    Worse case ill run a temp tank and hope to get lucky down the road

    I know a guy that just revamped his 25 and he may have the aluminum one. He replaced it with a 45 Gal one. Unless he has sold it he also has a rebuilt Velvet drive 1.9.1 with about 4 hrs on rebuilt.

    And 2-1.5" seacocks will go here. Theres a mounting pad for one and i added a 1/2" FRP base for the other that just needs the thru hole bored. This is where they were originally.
    You can see the small hole next to the inboard stringer where the transducer previously was, anyone have thoughts on placement for an Airmar flysh mount ducer in this bulk

    Chris, that exhaust system looks ok but it should be straight as you can make it so it wont hold water when you haul it in the winter. It would be good if you could extend that port side tube forward to make a surge tube. You would need another y forward of that one you have. I'm not sure you have room under that manifold for that though. Also it would be good to put that system together with T bolt clamps, 2 on every joint. Remember you may not be able to get to that whole system as some will be under the deck with no hatch above. Everything under the waterline should be two clamps.

    You should also make sure you get all the hookups on that engine that you can before you install it. It will be pretty tight in there. Even if you have to pull your manifolds you will have to haul the engine up. Also i don't think those elbows will work because the are oval on the bottom side.

    Thanks again for the help on the tank!
    Today i drilled the thru hull hole in the pic above and glassed down the first 1/2" FRP block for the engine intake thru hull.
    Also sanded down the transom where an exhuast hole was, should ve ready for fill, fair and gelcoat as soon as the weather warms a little.
