    Default Circle Boat Question...

    Circle boats run the drive from the crank snout....at 500 hp internally balanced do you run a dampner/balancer or just a solid connection. What is the best way to do this?

    Thank you

    Most N/A are running a damper, some aren't. Most blown deals aren't, some do.

    If I build it, and it has 4 cylinders or more, it has a damper, blower or not.

    Got to agree with Bob on this one.

    I have a special "two piece" crankshaft sitting here to show people why I think it's a good idea too.

    makes one of WHAT with a damper built in. I can't see what you're holding up from here.

    A two peace crank? You can make your own! I've made a couple over the years, but my engine's never seem to respond too well to the modification.

    No. If you're running a damper, you either bolt the adaptor to the damper, or you run the damper on the flywheel end
