Do you have the bravo on a box?

A couple questions.....

What ratio and prop are you running now?
What rpm are you going to run with the new blower?
What are you looking for speed, reliability, handling,??????
Why did you change the blower???
How much power?

A photo of the transom would help.

The engine will have to be moved forward in order to accommodate the transmission for the #6. Don't quote me, but I believe it's 18".

Pat,

I will call you later today about this project.
The Max Machine drive is on an IMCO box.
1.35 ratio 34 pitch custom lab Bravo.
The new blower has been on for approx 75 hours already and is running as high as 6500.
Speed, handling and reliability would be nice but reliability and maintain the current handling is really most important to Jeff.

Yep. Unless you have one of those 572's that is really a 540! Just because he told you that there is room that does not mean you don't have to move it.

I know. I was just joking about the time Redline here went around saying he had a 572 and found out it was really a 540.

Did you lengthen the skeg?

What is the distance from the notch to the end of the prop?

Good luck
The #Six will weigh more that would be my biggest concern on a 26 boat.

The old wet sump sixes eat up power as they hold about 5 gals of oil. The dry sumps will use the same or less power than a bravo drive.
