Hi again Bill,
two more things. I contacted Amel for advice and they told me not to go for the higher hp 110 hp motor as the c drive was not designed for that power and it would fail. Later models had a beefed up c drive that could handle the extra power and since at 160 you are earlier than our 299 I would expect the same to apply to you. I made the fit of the new engine to the existing Hurth gearbox a condition of the purchase, ie if it didn't fit they supplied the new gearbox to me at no cost. That made them sweat, a bit different from an off hand "oh yes it should fit". In the event it was no issue, a perfect fit. And yes, there is no smoke.
