mike, this may be a dumb idea but if the you are able to build the stringer up with a spacer that runs the entire length by bolting the spacer to the stringer in several places you in effect make it an integral part of the boat and then allow the engine mount/trunnion to sit at a normal setting. Not sure about the engineering stress but an idea---- BTW i like the look of the TBI-in the crate. )

Like was suggested earlier, the height issue youre running into is because PCM normally uses their engines with the 1.23 down angle tranny... so the engine sits much flatter (ie, front of engine is lower).

I dont like the idea of being at the VERY top of the mounts just for the purposes of the alignment- you dont leave yourself much wiggle room. If you know you can align it, then I would not worry about the stresses of running toward the top- they put that much range of travel into the mount design for a reason. Otherwise, just add taller blocks. Our OMC 454 came from the factory with 3" wood blocks under the front mounts and it stayed in place just fine for 30 years.

How about checking Indmar for mounts? Since they normally mount at an angle, they might have something that works better.

Major progress this week. Got the motor mount issue resolved, PCM sent the motor with the wrong mounts that attach to the block. The new ones have don't have as much of a drop so I can discard the spacer block. Many thanks to Richard at DIM who was my go between with the tech guys at PCM. Any questions or concerns with this install was usually answered within an hour.

Decided to go with the push lock system instead of hose clamps for the fuel lines. Much cleaner look and this stuff is rated for 300 PSI This is the stuff that they use for the remote oil drain hoses.
First pic is the old barbed fitting removed.

Stuff is really easy to work with, cut the hose to length heat up the hose, one drop of oil on the fitting and push the hose on.

Routing and hooking up the throttle cable was a no brainer, all brackets came with the motor, I just hooked it up. Throttle cable goes to a potentiometer which is pretty much throttle by wire from that point.

Thanks John, getting this thing figured out and done before the weather really tanks is the goal.

Shift cable bracket had to be modified. To get the proper angle on the cable we lengthened the original bracket.
