Is it a silver PCM engine or the black Indmar engine, IIRC they are different among marinization companies.

The top tube, 2 3/4" long and the bottom tube, 4 1/4" long are thick wall steel tubes, with the alternator mounted to the top tube and bottom of the alternator mounted to the arm, 1/4" thick mounted to the block/heads with bolts thru the tubes who's holes are slightly larger than the bolts.
