    Any pics of this procedure? I'm interested!

    think 90.5 jus went thru this... he had one of each.. said he found some subtle differences but didn't say what?
    I only have a 15" offshore to compare it to not a 20"'but the clamp itself "looked " slightly different, in the way it was made.

    Will have to look again closer, but my 80's model or even 70's maybe has a different anode than his under the cylinder. Heck it might not even be stock.

    Number of the clamp is 5465101

    Thanks for the link, after a few minutes comparing, transom bracket, swivel, tilt tube, etc. are all the same part numbers between race and bass. Myth busted.

    Was planning on doing a 20, but I just to stir the pot a little more, I have a cut down old 2 ram clamp that I may end up using. Not quite 15, maybe 15-7/8" or so. If I bolt it all the way down on the transom it looks like it will put the centerline of the prop shaft pretty close to dead even with the bottom of the pad...

    I tried searching earlier and came up empty handed, will keep trying...

    Yeah, the parts I checked were late 80's, still had the skinny tiller. I'll try to look up the fat tiller stuff tomorrow!
