Yes when i let the motor down to rest on the pin, the pin is in the very bottom hole
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.

The factory recommends that a properly trained technician service your Johnson or Evinrude outboard motor. Should you elect to perform repairs yourself, use caution, common sense, and observe safety procedures in the vicinity of flammable liquids, around moving parts, near high-temperature components, and working with electrical or ignition systems.
The information offered here is only general in nature and should not be construed as complete factory approved procedures, techniques, or specifications. Always use the proper service manual for your motor, up-to-date service literature, the correct tools, and have an understanding of how to proceed with troubleshooting and repair methods. If you are unsure or uncomfortable with a procedure, a situation, or a technique, enlist the services of a factory trained technician.
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.
