    Default Lenco Clutch

    Anyone running an older Lenco clutch (in/out) need to know if Alto products corp disc #023744 are the same. and as to what oil to run. Clutch set appears to be the same as automatic trans. However oil that was removed was not atf. Thanks for any input. Mike Lee

That's like the 20th time he's gone by today?"

    When I sold the boat, I sold it less engine with the lenco not installed. I ran it for 5 years with a blown 470 cu in chev, with no clutch, direct drive. The boat is a good heavy boat and ran triple didgets and handled and set fine. With no whirl a way and the flooring starting to delam, it was an accident waiting to happen, I figured I was tooo lucky for to long. I bought the Lenco from Hemetdragracer on this forum and was going to redo the whole boat or just put a tunnel ram 'safe' motor in it with the lenco and make it into a nice 90 mph ski boat, which is exactly what Keith did. Even then it still scared the heck out of everyone he knew. It's a nice set up with all the right hardware unmolested, sounds like it found a good home !!!!!!!

    Thanks Harley I will get the beer Least I could do... Hope to meet you guys. Bill thanks for the info. Keith was honest about the boat and even sold it for a considerable amount less than he listed And even brought more parts over after the sale. I bought to run on the Saginaw River. My kids love it. After plant closing in 2010 Had to sell my streetrod and been kinda bummin with no toy. Always wanted a Sanger and this one fit the budget so may not be a showboat still fun though and folks I talked with have been helpful. Hope to have this thing in the water upcoming summer might wait a summer before a new floor there are a few delaminations.

    The stringers were in good shape, with a mild engine like the one Keith had it should last a few summers if you pay attention. If you put a mountain motor in it and flame it in rough water like a K boat you could break it up in one weekend. The floors are not that expensive to replace, just a lot of true grit. There are guys around that can do the whole project in a week if you strip the hardware off. All those old flats need floors, if you go to the fiberglass section of this forum, these guys will walk you through it. The nice thing about those old sangers is that they are good heavy boats, doesn't take a killer motor to get them going around 80 and you won't get yourself into trouble with no seat time. You don't see any of them blowing over or spinning out or barrel rolling. Thats where that clutch works as good as a whirl-a-way, if the motor stops or the prop breaks it will release and not throw you out of the boat. Important things to think about when you take your wife and kids for a ride !!!!! Once you drive it and figure out how to make it 'set' your either hooked for life or you hate it !!!!
    Good luck !!! Enjoy !!!! Can[t wait to see it run !!!! We go down to the river a lot on Wed. nights in Saginaw usually we have the whole place to ourselves !!!!

    Mike..not sure about the fossil clutch...I know for the newer stuff there is two different clutch pacs...green or blue. Scott @ Lenco could help you. I am not sure of the release factor, when mine is activated it is locked..weather it has power or not. If i kill the motor it will NOT release. The only way to release it is by dumping the air pressure...I use a whirl away.
