We are interested in which holes are used to attach the motor to the boat transom and if the motor could be mounted higher on the transom by using the holes below the fastening bolts.

Re: 4 blade prop verses 3 blade prop

What we are talking about has nothing to do with any PIN. We are referring to the 4 bolts that hold the motor to the transom. The bolts travel thru the transom and you tighten them on the outside of the transom which has 4 mounting holes on the 2 upper mounting brackets. This is where the height is adjusted. The 2 lower brackets just has a open channel for the lower bolts to slide to accommodate the selected height of the 2 upper mounting  bracket that have 4 holes  select your height.

Re: 4 blade prop verses 3 blade prop

On my G2 250 I started w a 4 blade (had 3 blade on my G1 250). It ran ok but man did reverse suck! really poor control and minimal bite.
I went back to the 3 blade and love it.
