Is there any difference as far as thickness from OEM tin and after market tin-My motor is 69x77 and the tin I bought seems to long -any suggestions-Thanks Rich

The new tins are horrible as far as quality, the metal is thinner and the stampings are often poor and poorly put together. If you have to trim them to fit, it's no big surprise. You might have also bought tin for a later motor and the 1200cc motor you're working on is a bit narrower. I've never seen new tin offered for a 40 horse, you likely have tin for a 15/1600 motor. How does it fit around the intake? If the hole is not tight to the intake flange you have later model tin.

I finally trimmed the tin to fit but there is got to be someplace to buy a thicker tin,this stuff sucks,It is installed and the only way I'd buy this cheap stuff is if I was  getting ready to unload.

The Scat tins are nice from what I've seen
