Did you get the right-angle barb?

Maybe some pictures would help us see what you're dealing with. It was a tight squeeze for me, but the motorbox was not what was in the way.

To me, this forum is about love of inboard boats. It is about the sharing of information and, on a good day, some humor. It is not about post count, brand of boat, or any other superfluous labels that lend themselves to a false sense of superiority. Please, respect one another, try to pass on accurate information, and keep your eye on the ball.

Check this picture out from my 84. It's tight when closed, but works perfectly. Cable ties are all you need.

Thanks for the replies guys. Yea doug tried two 90"s 1-90 no 90's.The box on the early models is really tight,you can see from martinis pic if you are outside the throtle cable it hits the box.Hey martini I thought it had to be mounted on the horizontal.But I agree it should work thanks for the pic.I think how you have it run is my only option.Clean engine did you redo it or did you buy it that clean?

Yeah, I figured we were dealing with different dimensions on the box. Good luck.

It was not like that when I bought it. I redid the engine and the interior myself. I have since removed the engine again and installed GT-40 heads and painted it an old Ford red. It looks really sharp. I figured since I was putting on performance heads, the engine should look like it is hot. I am not completely done with it yet, but it will be good to go soon. It makes no difference how the strainer is mounted, it works great!
