    As long as your angles are correct you should be fine. I've had them where they only had about 1/4" between the oil pan and pump intake. What kind of engine, oil pan, and hull is it?

    Over time your motor will sag down. How long it takes is how you drive your boat. I would install a rail kit now. It destributes the load over a larger area and your motor won't sag. Bolts thru stringers at four mounting points tend to sag with time.

    Mine has less clearance than that. We actually had to grind some off the top of the hull-intake bolts to get the pan to clear. But I also run a rail kit thought.

    cut the excess bolt off so its flush with the top of the nuts, how close is it after you do this?

    Jeff as you know We regularly do these "swaps". Using a 7 3/4 to maybe... 8" pan and having a standard 1310 drive line (8.5+ or - OAL) you will have about 1/4 clearance between the base of the pan and the top of the intake when Jet/engine and driveline are set correctly . You might consider drilling and tapping your front intake bolt holes oversize then installing a larger counter sunk screw (5/16) this allows install of those fasteners without nuts and washers Tom

    Also, try using a half nut on the front intake bolts.
