Rik can get part's if needed. The gearing is in the trannie, the drive is direct, 1:1. The drive should be able to handle 600hp or more.
Do you have the steering and trim rams??
Got it all. Is the direction of rotation in the drive or tranny?

Oh, and now that we know what it is, anyone got one they wanna get rid of???

It's a # 6...
It is a direct, straight shaft, no gears.
The trannie has the only gears to change rotation or ratio.

Kaama,

I have been doing some research for a while now because I am about to purchase a cat and speed is #2 on my list as to reliabilty and longevity, so Arneson's are going to be my drives of choice.

Can you post any info you gain about them reguarding setup and anything else? Also 15 years is a pretty long life for a performance drive, is that what someone should expect for the life of an Arneson? Also why is your friend in need of another?

Thanks
Mark

LMAO Isn't that THREE??? ROTF!

Actually, surface drives seem to be the longevity leaders, from what I have been reading. In real life, the drive in the pics was put on a boat in 1986 (by the same friend that owns it now) that had been jet driven. It was still running when he pulled it off in October (never re-built). My boat is an '84, and still has the original drives. I know that is a limited sampling, but I don't know anything else powered for 15 years by a big block that has lasted that long.

For info, try the Arneson site at the top, or run a search on this site.
