I'd use 1/2" plate to adapt to the gear.

Usually no alignment pins, things are kept centered by pilot bore shoulder on plate. You need a big lathe to cut that, or a mill with a rotary table.

Bolt circles and crank CL are concentric.
I have been thinking the IH 466 or IH 360 would be good choices for a DIY marinization project.

Do you know of any that have done that? the engines are common and not expensive, have wet liners and parts are also not expensive. Would need to be 1994 or earlier to stay with mechanical injection.
