Mark, if you need any help give me a call. The conversion a pretty easy. Did you get a set of props or new hubs yet? You'll need them so don't forget.

I'll be working with Throttle up on the prop thing. I sent my old ones down to have them worked on, then I decided to make the change to the Konrads. So the props are there I told Matt to hold them until we figure out what to do. Matt has some ideas for me.

Thanks
Mark

Here are the old Assemblies.
We got the old ones off drives and all, in under 2 hours
Look at the size of the old trim rams compared to the new ones

Sweet stuff 'aint it? People don't understand how nice these drives are until they see them. Hmmmm REAL "U" joints, heffty rams, adult prop shaft. Want a real eye opener? Pull one of the top caps and have a look!

So how long do you figure you have in the conversion by the time you're done, 10 hours- 15 if you take your time? And what is the TOTAL cost compared to a Bravo conversion?

You're gonna' love those things, enjoy!!!

Like I said, if you need any help call me or I'm sure Brian Bunch wouldn't mind a call either.

Thanks Lofty, So far everything is going just fine. I hope to have everything cleaned up this weekend and motors ready to go in. Hopefully my buddy Tony can get over with the boom truck to set the motors next weekend.
Leaving now to go stearilize the bilge.

See ya
