Will an outboard(mec 40 20") attached to a jack plate or brackets, create more stress on the transom ('69).

Pick up a 20lb weight and hold it against hour chest. Now extend your arms and hold that weight straight out.

That's an unusually short answer from Tom :)
Clam Hound, maybe your question could be asked differently. The question could be... will it create to much stress?
Some specifics on the boat would help too. Is this a 1969 13'? There are a several of threads and some pictures in Cetecea dealing with the problems and solutions associated with putting a 20" engine on a 15" transom 13 footer. Is that why you are thinking jackplate/bracket?

Here is the tread I was thinking of regarding different solutions to the 20" shaft on a pre 1972 13' whaler:
