In my Dodge diesel truck I have the transmission from Goerend ,with a triple disc converter ,mod valve body,billed input/output shafts .
The truck is making +- 550 hp and 1100 torque ( based on 1/4 mile ) not dyno,d .
Do you think this sort tranny,s can be used for marine purpose ?
The converter is not needed anymore ,like in the T 400 GM we used a spline drive from ,, Art Carr'' the casing is aluminium and not that heavy ,but is quite long .
If anybody can find a way to shift the trans manual....it might maybe work.
Maybe ,,Mastmotorsport '' can do the job ,they are going to build some sort crate engine for boats truck etc ,and they can supply an aftermarket diesel fuel ECM module to drive these Cummins electronics
The trans can handle a lot torque ,I even take boost launches with this 7500 lbs truck ,and no problems for now .
(By thinking of this above ,I had a V drive with a 48 % step up in gears on this boat ,but using propellors 15 and 16 pitch .
So maybe the rpm,s that the outputshaft is turning is too low with a diesel..)
