TRS are spinning out. V's are spinning in. U-joint centerline to propshaft centerline on a TRS (25.12") vs a V (18.7")...V is 6.45" shorter.

You are right, put alot of study in before I mounted them. They are as high as I could put them,without pluging the transom & moving eng's up. X About 2" below the surface of the bottom. Takes forever to plane and slips real bad comming out of the whole,but once it comes over ,hold on...............any comments....................anyone

Boat: 88' Cig Top Gun
Full cabin ,all fiberglass

I have always wondered if a Speedmaster Drive would fit the TRS transom assembly. Can you still get parts for a number V drive??? by the way that is a sweet ride!!!

No It wont, had to buy all of that, It will cover up the hole though and yes you can still buy V's and parts
