Mini V-Drive

Post by Scott » Wed Mar 11, 2015 2:31 pm

Anyone put a/made a V-Drive reduction transfer case that was installed into a smaller runabout?
I'm thinking Tuffy of mine. First off why not. Lots of small marine engines that are suitable. Casale V drives are nice.

I've done soon research on belt drives. I'm going to leave this brief to allow some room for criticism, opinions, etc.

A flash of lightning with a simultaneous crash of thunder.

An ignition system of early Mercury outboards that not only is a nightmare to diagnose but also improves a marine mechanics competency.

Tiny Mite anyone?

Anything can be done, but if there are plans for a similar style boat designed for an inboard why reinvent the wheel? Structural mods for an inboard could be challenging.

Merc ignitions aren't all that bad. Mr. Lucas designed electrical systems for early British cars, he is 'affectionately' referred to as "The Prince of Darkness".
This is my first, last and only boat build.
