    Drilling 2 extra holes for the transom plate,which you can use as a template.The hole is the same for bravo.

    Rat Dude, not 100% but if memory serves from some tech readings that only one extra hole in the transom has to be drilled and the bravo bolts right up. Again, I am not real techy! Wrink

    There might be a hight difference.
    I think I read somewhere that the bravo is longer than the alpha.
    Hey even if it ain't broke it's still fun to tinker with it.

    Easiest of all drive changes, just drill the two top holes as Crack said.I did it to a 26 Hustler with no problems at all. It was worth it just toget rid of the shift interrupt switch.
