That's the setup I use on the DR. '57 35hp and two tanks in the rear cockpit.
Make sure to check the height of the transom. Most of the DR's were short, 14" or so. You need to make it up with the transom boards to get the motor at the proper depth Otherwise it's the dreaded shim..

OK powerwise but it might squat a bit. Decelerate judiciously.

Probably not a surprise, but McMaster stocks it, as does Online Metals. Naturally, I couldn't find it when I needed it, but as soon as I riveted in the back-to-back angle stock, there it was. ;)
