Yeah, beer is outta the question with this stuff. I'd hate to blow chunks all over my pretty white paint job

Will Konrad be offering a Large Prop Shaft set-up like they are doing with the Bravo's.

Forget Which company is making the #6 shaft for the bravo's
but it offers a greater selections of props.


Great Looking drives !! (konrads)



Thanks

The Konrad 540 Drive uses a 1 1/4" propshaft, so props with hubs that fit a Bravo XR will also fit these. That's the only way these come... big shafts throughout.

There are a wide selection of props available from all of the major prop manufacturers.

Cheers,
Brian

Here is the dry fit of the new plate for the tie bar.
This will allow it to clear the mufflers when drive trimmed all the way up

Brian here is the actuators and how they mount. The T-bar clamps that come with it are too small also, I had a couple 3" hose clamps that worked but I am going to look for some T-bars

MrGig,

Nice work on your tie bar plates. Should hold up to the worst Lake Michigan can dish out.

Your trim acutators are a lot different than mine. I've been surfing around for t-bolt clamps, found this place....

Them motors are purdy!

Looks alot nicer than mine is looking these days...

Hit West Marine or Boat US for T-clamps. They have all sizes.
