Also, even if the footprint is the same, you'll definitely want to check the motor mount locations, as they are most likely different. If you don't have the new motor mounts installed prior to trying to install the new engine, you'll have trouble.
Finally, double check all the positions and measurements for the engine, its accessories and the prop shaft. Even with a similar footprint, chances are pretty high that the prop shaft will need to be modified to work with the new engine in some way.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.
