I have the same motor and love it. Insane mileage! The only issue is that it has a raw water pickup just over the prop which can be seen in your picture 18. If you do any shallow water dredging, the prop throws the sand/mud into the intake. It will then clog the piss tube and you will have an overheating problem. I fixed this issue by running a larger hose from the block through the housing, eliminating the fitting that is in the housing. No problem since then. Before I did this, it was clogging every trip. (I run in really shallow water.)
