    They are not exactly the same but are interchangeable, are you taking blown TRSs off of a Cig or something? #2s will bolt right on in place of them but the boat will behave differently

    The #2s are longer, so your prop will run deeper.

    Smile answer from the expert, John Klumpjan

    The major difference is the Lower, the lower is a speedmaster, twin shaft. The upper is the same. the length from center line to center line is the same. It will sit just about the same as a TRS, but if you are replacing a TRS, you will slow down. There are no more parts available, so if you are replacing TRS's, you are certainly better off going with Bravo or current drives, instead of trading what is becomming obsolete for what is already obsolete. We would need to know your application, HP, etc to better assist you. If you would like to speak to John directly, please phone him at 800-376-1616, he will be happy to explain it all to you.
