Thumbs up Re: whats involved with a alpha to bravo swap?

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.

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.
