Re: Tips for dropping in an A-4?

It also gives you the opportunity to reconfigure things for easier access - inaccessible fuel filters, rerouting wiring & hoses so they are neat and out of the way etc. etc.

When the boat was built all those were done to be fast & cheap in nearly all cases - serviceability was seldom considered.

Your time is now.

By the way, if you have to add some steel angle to reinforce your mounts & so forth, pay the $2 and use stainless so you don't end up with a bunch of rust in a few years. If you're as OCD as me, sand it smooth & polish it before installing it.
