Re: Could 27 hp fit here?

Yes, it is either a 20 or 28 HP Beta engine (not 27) and I'm guessing that the price differential is over $1K between the two models. Say $7K for the 20HP and $8.2K for the 28HP (probably add $1K to each price guestimate).

I'd guess that it could be a cabinetry problem as ehirlihy suggested although Beta makes a "drop in" replacement for the A4 in both 20 & 28 HP so the bigger engine should have worked fine.

SBS,
How dare you make fun of my Atomic 3 or 4 engine!!!
"The Atomic 4, a drop in replacement engine for most Beta Marine engines."
Rebuilt Atomic 4's are available from Moyer Marine for around $6K.
Working used models can be had for ~ $1K.
