Well I had an 8BA in my 40 and had to put a Truck pan on it to clear my suspension. That worked great! Problem: I just put an New 50 Merc motor in it and didn't notice that the front of the pan is 2" deeper than the truck pan and it is less than an inch from the axle when just sitting! Question: Will the pan off the 8BA fit the Merc motor? I just don't want the to get it all apart and find out the front or rear seal is different or something else I haven't thought of?? Any help would be great!
