Re: Barrelback-20 Louisville Kentucky

Re: Barrelback-20 Louisville Kentucky

I used the MC 1-1/8" shaft, strut, and Federal 14x18 LH cup prop for the layout.
I may pull the Supra 1" shaft, strut, and DJohnson 14x13 LH cup prop tomorrow to check the shaft length, and strut dimensions. Then decide which to use.
Props can be sold or possibly cut down to 12"?
Suggestions?

Re: Barrelback-20 Louisville Kentucky

Looks like that 1to1 tranny is coming out of the Supra! It has a nice prop shaft, strut and flange on it also. Shaft may not be the correct length of course. Glad I purchased the Supra now!
Let me get it out and I will get back to you guys...thanks again.

Re: Barrelback-20 Louisville Kentucky

Do you guys know if the bell housing and shaft coupling on the Ford 351 work with the Velvet Drive from the Chevy 454 engine? (I'm not sure of the terminology). Or will I need other parts?

Re: Barrelback-20 Louisville Kentucky

I still don't understand why I would do all of the switching out of trannys and adaptors etc. (I'm not much of a mechanic) The MC setup worked great in the MC boat. I would think it would work fine in the BB. ( It seems to fit) Even if it were not as efficient in the BB, it would still be plenty of ...
