It is an extremely tight fit at best for any boat built built for a BBC and is literally undoable in some boats.
Note the mold level clearance built into the engine compartment to clear the water return from the "mixer".

You are probably dead on about another 75hp a side eating drives- the 710 spin another 300 rpm as well although I rarely get to run up there on the Ocean my little 28's too small.

What a great thread you linked to.

I definitely had it easier not doing a retrofit.

PM sent.

AMEN to that. Interesting on how I wound up facing some of the same issues:
725/Indy retrofit project
Like Marginmn, the ILMOR factory came through when I needed them, though!
