Hi Billy,
I've communicated all via email with the exact information presented previously and copied herein.
I calculated my shaft length to be 45 3/4" long with the following beyond the strut (1" diameter shaft):
-standard SAE taper 2 3/4"
-standard SAE beyond the taper 1 3/4" (leaves room for threads and cotter pin)
-1" space between prop shaft and strut

for a total of 5 1/2" beyond the strut.

My prop shaft guy says I need 4.6" beyond the strut (says that will give me 1/2" clearance between prop and strut).
I'm not sure how much clearer I could have been in my communications.

Thanks,

Steve

That is clear.
I’m sure he doesn’t want to recut a new prop shaft for you. All the places I’ve dealt with have made sure things were right so if it is that kind of business all will turn out well. Is he doing prop too?

Billy, I've got more research to do on the prop but he could provide that as well. Its discount inboard marine which is where I got my motor too.

Thanks again for your help!

heater hose

Post by steves » Sat Aug 18, 2018 9:08 am

hey Guys,
I am re routing my coolant overflow tank to the back of the motor. I need to cut and put in 2 90 deg fittings. Any suggestion for 90 deg barbed hose fittings?

I've not found a supply yet. Considerations are brass or stainless I suppose.

Those joints look great. Can't you use shorter plugs?

Cool detail. Chris Craft never had time for a joint that nice.

JimmyY,
I found that with my plug cutter, the longer the plug, the more it tapered and fit in the hole better.

Cutting them off with a vibrator saw is only about 2 seconds each and it doesnt matter how long they are!

Hercdrvr, Thanks!

psychobilly,
I cleaned it all up 3 years ago, and within a week it looked just the same, now I only clean at critical points of varnishing!

The other excuse could be, I have successfully overcome ADD and Anorexia!

Are ya dealing with Vance there at SKIDIM? I know I have spoken to him several times while out on the water or in the shop and he has always got me back up and running or at least solved the problem. Very knowledgeable guys at SKIDIM.

exhaust hose source

Post by steves » Fri Nov 09, 2018 3:18 pm

Hey Folks,
I've started my search for exhaust hoses. It seems I need about 7 ft per side of 3.5 in hose.

I like the vetus stuff but cant seem to find a source that sells less than a role of 66"! can anyone help a guy out on a source that sells by the foot?

Thanks and hope you are all well!

Steve
