I set the pump up temporarily and Fabricated a ride plate out of 1/4” 6061 aluminum plate.

The intake was previously machined and set for a setback, by D1 Performance.
The cradle was purchased from aftermarket.

The ride plate angle still needed to  be set, relative to the keel, but shims or spacers need to be fabed up yet.

Went to work on designing an inner transom plate, that would act as a bracket, to carry the MSD, The fuel filter and the diverter pump.
I wanted to contain every thing with in the bilge area, as much as possible, and not screw any thing into the transom wood.
I drilled and cut all the holes for fittings and steering tube.
