Default gearbox

a bit complicated the centre pin from the gearbox i had machined to fit in the centre of the flywheel...it still left a four inch gap all around to fill in which i did with steel channel cut and welded drilled bolt holes where needed then bolted it together getting it lined up was a bit awkward though

ha ha underneath is a bolt joining the flange to the shaft...should have been one with a castellated nut but lost it when i removed the shaft the other week so only temporary....but the 1-1 gearbox is not really good for this setup as had to fit a small prop as very fussy

Impressive, kind of makes all that crap I've been going on about proper marine cooling systems redundant!

the thing is at the beginning i was hoping someone would come back and say "yes i did this sort of thing" now i know i am not the only one surely ....i tried it because at the time it was a cheap option and so far i suppose i have been lucky ...proper engine proper cooling is always the right way to go ...
