I assume that is for overseas, if you did one for domestic would you use the 600hp Cummins C's?

correct me if Im wrong.. is this the larger heavier block vs the 480 version, and if so I believe the weight to power ratio would be off, or even less....just trying to remember back when I did my diesel boat..Thanks Jeff

yes the "C" is the bigger block. The "B" were all sleeveless, don't know about the 480 but the "C's" are wet sleeved, the weight shouldn't matter much a couple hundred more or less than the FPT in a 43'er. I think you would be much happier with the lower end because of the extra cubes.

You rang?

The boat will run quicker because you can run the dia and pitch. The multispeed you can get on plane with a big wheel. Don't worry about the parasitic loss too much we use a true dry-sump and a spur gear design opposed to a planetary with clutch plates.

It also will not take all day to spool up and go.

Did I answer the questions?

Thank you kind sir! But that was not my question but thank you again for backing me up!

Years ago, we played with Lenco boxes, they made/make a reduction planetarty in-line gear box. We purchased and had the shafts reversed so we could run overdrive. It worked, not as easy as we wanted but workable for testing, it never made it further as you know we had a financial crisis, a kind of Bernie Maddoff of the day!

We also made our own version of a box with twin counter shaft so we could keep the in & out in-line and that kept engine rotation the same as output rotation.

I say to you Pat, I want to run another diesel boat and here is what I want from you:
  • an in-line box with OD output of .5 -.6 (in that range)
  • non-shiftable
  • bolts to SAE#3
  • output can attach to a Merc Bravo style drive
  • If need to be offset, has to be as small as possible

What would you do to get me that?

The reason for in-line to me is always the repower market, if I made something I would want to be able to capitalize on it for a broader market then a couple race boats.

Give it some thought, what would you do?

Thanks
