no...

an Alpha SS has the water nostrils in the nose and water chamber access plates on each side of the lower...

that appears to be an SS upper and a CLE lower, which in some cases worked pretty good

Notice the raised ring on the case by the prop, it is a special outboard case. That case was brought up in one of the Rootsy posts years back. I believe it may be the same dimension as the SS, need clarification by a brighter bulb than me!!!!! Jim does CLE signify an outboard case?

IMO, that would be a better set up than an Alpha SS because of the water intakes on the side a la the stock lower unit.

I cannot tell you how many times when I had an SS that I sucked weeds from a low water pick up.

I would also imagine the side water intakes would limit your up trim.

A little more info on that type case, there are several variations. Turns out Rootsy was using the same basic case.
