Inboard Direct Drive Rough Parts List?

Post by CodyP »

I know that every engine is different...

But is there anywhere you guys know of where I can find a "Rough" parts list for everything needed for a direct drive motor?

Thanks,
Cody P.

The basic bits you will need are

1) shaft to engine coupling

2) stuffing box

3) shaft log

4) strut

5) prop shaft

If you haven't already get the "inboard motor installations" book, it explains every thing you will need and how to set it up.

You didn't specify whether you wanted a transmission or not, so I posted links for both.

Hope this helps !

Dont forget the Riser at the end of the Manifold. It doesn't show in the photos but it's necessary! 8)

Certainly not a Stinking riser :lol:

Back when I worked on boats in the Puget Sound area, there were a number of cabin boats with the Engine inside the cabin, the Riser exposed to provide heat for Cooking.

I'll bet some of those Risers were "Stinkin risers" :wink:

question guys:

Engines are my weakness: I have never done the Direct Drive thing...Always been an Inboard Ourboard guy, the I.O. has the transmission in it....

I thought with Direct Drives you had to have a transmission??? I saw in the post above set ups for or without a transmission????

OH BOY....

Cody,
My V-drive has in-n-out, but I can't put it into gear with the motor running. In that sense, it's like a direct drive. Put it in gear, point it and fire it up. A paddle helps with this...

I coast to a stop and simply idle to the point that I kill the motor and drift to the dock.

Simplicity at its best.
