My 93 sport needs transmission replaced. I've read on hear on talked to several mechanics and it its better to replace with 80 series rather than any rebuild scenario. Also heard might be muffler clearance issues with 80 series. Any thoughts? Also hw do I post pics here?

You might be better off talking to SkiDim since they sell the kits.

They should be able to tell you any differences in dimensions

For pictures look at the sticky at the top of the general discussion section on posting pictures Wink

The title is "adding images to your posts"

About this left handed engine I keep seeing in posts, my prop is RH so does that mean my engine is also?

Nope, it is possible your Vdrive or the transmission reverses engine rotation.
Example:  My 95 Nautique has a standard rotation engine, the tranny reverses the rotation so I run a reverse rotation prop.   You have to know your parts to know exactly what is happening in your boat.

You should be hoping that you have a LH normal automotive rotation engine that was hooked to a 1.23 PCM 40A. That was the setup in most every 93 Sport. Not all though

The 40A reverses propshaft rotation in the reduction section and turns a RH prop.

The 80 series PCM transmissions only work with a LH normal automotive rotation engine 

An 80A will turn a RH prop when hooked to a LH engine.

The LH  means if you're looking at the engine from the rear, it rotates to the left or counter clockwise.

You figured out that picture posting yet? Wink

At least now you know that an 80A will work behind your engine.

As far as muffler interference, it looks like no answers here but I'd figure it would fit or they wouldn't be selling it as a replacement kit.

Make that call to SkiDIM  Wink
