    Default Drive Line...

    I have the old school drive line that bolts right up to the flexplate/crank. Not PTO flange needed. What kinda power will these things hold up to?

    They will handle a lot of power. Not afraid to put 1000 hp to them.

    Nice, one less thing i have to buy. Curious, my pump was set back about 5.5" the jetaway will make up about 4.25 of that right? Can i use a spacer/shim to fill the rest of do i need to get a new drive line or if possible have this one extended? I know i could move the motor back but i'm already getting close to the transom.

    Lot's of people use a machined aluminum spacer between a 2 piece U joint but since yours is a one piece deal one would have to be made to go between the flex plate and drive line. I personally have not seen it done this way and I'm not the right guy to ask. I would not move the motor back with what your doing.

    If I remember correct the rear motor plate is 23 3/4 from the transom. Yes we moved it forward. The TR's responded well with that placement at speeds we are trying to run.

    Does someone make an aluminum spacer? How large can they go? And are they strong? Just curious....

    MPD can machine those spacers for you. There are racers using them into the 1000+ hp range.

    I am moving the 429 forward about a inch and a half for now. How far can we go with a spacer ? We are at 23.75" right now !

    BTW - Thanks Ross

    When talking to jack he seamed to think i may need to move the motor back and not forward. This was when we were talking about the boat wanted to possibly fall on it's nose and porpoise after my mods.

    A spacer between the flexplate and drive line just seams like a bad idea, but i guess thats pretty much what a PTO is doing...
