changing the oil pan...anyone know how much clearance is under the factory oil pan when installed in the boat...

....I would hate to put in this new engine to find out it doesn't fit...

I would guess an inch or so at lowest point. I've got the 220, but I can measure when I get home if it helps.

Unless you put in a 7 qt baffled pan, you shouldn't see any issues. Are they close in size?

.....but the drain is on the bottom of this pan and not the port side.....gonna be close if its only 1 inch.....

.....gonna be close if its only 1 inch.....

That sounds about right, nearly the same on a '89 PS190 and there shouldn't be any difference in the two.
