Default What drives?

Just doing some day dreaming...what drive would live with around 1,000lbft of torque in front of it? What about 1,500lbft?

Air-nope, just wondering...

The arneson, kept on coming up on my list too. I just thought that there may be some other ones out there. I recall a fixed shaft drive that would take the power, but I don't recall who did it. Anybody know the input rating of the 6?

#6's are rated for 1000 hp/1000ft.lbs. The CALLAN Tencara race cat runs a fixed (side to side) shaft but is trimable (up and down) I think it was a BPM(?) gear box and runs a standard #6 prop.

Tonto,

Good memory...they are BPM's (Italy). Our turbines make 3000hp @ 16,800rpm (reduced 2:1 before drop box) and approx. 1300 ft lbs. Never had a failure...they are bulletproof.
