I went with Eddie marine at first and ordered the ski tow part. When it arrived I went to install it and the mounts didn't line up, it had 4 going to the bellhousing and are way off.

Retail is a no go so used is the way... Just have to double check mounting:)

Is it possible they sent the wrong one?

There is also Marine Industries West

So, I just checked mine and all 4 go to the bell housing and I remember having to “work” to get it lined up. There is another style that had 2  going to the bell housing and 2 to the intake I believe. It looked a more square.
