I would install it as setup A.

Setup A has a more equal balance of power going to the drive/prop. Whenever you have a multi-motor, single drive configuration, IMO the best thing you can do is rule out variables and try to keep things as balanced as possible.

You say you have the original Casale 1000. How is it set up?
If the v-drive is not 1:1 ratio then you have to go with figure A. 1 LH and 1 RH rotation engine. If it is 1:1 you could go either way however with figure B you could use engines of the same rotation. IMO figure A would be stronger with the 2 engines being splined together turning the shaft through the gear in the same direction. Figure B I would think jerking back and forth on the teeth would result in a broken tooth especially if a engine hic-uped.

Andy and Drew have helped out enough already.
This question is for me and just would like to hear what everyone else thinks.

As I said I don't want to get into all the logistics until I get a consensus on how folks would do it if it was theirs. I will be more then very happy to discuss it all then.
Very cool. Since the drive is not a 1:1, the only feasible option is A. Otherwise the RPM relationship between the engines would be off. Keep us posted on the final setup.

I have enjoyed following your project on your web page.

Hey PJ
I have the original V Drive and know exactly how it was set up but......... Getting ready to put it together but running a theory by everyone to see if my theory is insane or not.

With a over drive gear box?

I geuss that would keep the gear slap down as one engine would be pushing or geting pulled ,how ever you want to look at it.

Very cool project thanks for sharing.

ok i would thank the ? would be is the v-drive a 1to 1 or is it over drive . If overdriven i would think you would need to go with example A to keep the motors balanced , but what do i know

If the original V drive was setup as in exhibit "B", and was a 1.03 ratio vs the new gears which are 1.09, wouldn't the minor difference originally be pretty much mute?
