Re: BOW THRUSTER .Replacement cover does not align

If you have this problem with fitment of the new cover, it is actually VERY easy to fix.  The screws do NOT thread into the cover, the only threads are in the housing.  The threads are ground off the end of the screws.  If you rotate the new back cover, you can easily drill 4 new holes that line up without a fuss.  Don't drill through the back plate, otherwise oil will leak out.  Just deep enough for the pin ends on the screws.

I'll repeat Bill R's comment. Amel changed the length of the propeller shaft, and the new shaft requires a new back cover.  Do not mix and match these!
