what are the pros and cons of these 2 drives with high horsepower in a jet drag boat?
The lenco shaft needs the engine and pump in perfect alignment.what are the pros and cons of these 2 drives with high horsepower in a jet drag boat?
Just curious, but if the Lenco is used there will be no extra friction in the drive train to the pump and if the u-joints are used there may be a tad more friction which could take away the net horsepower to the pump?The lenco shaft needs the engine and pump in perfect alignment.
The u joints do not, which is nice if you want to mount the engine
Level in the boat instead of the same angle as the pump.
i ran a lenco in my cp tunnel. i never ran it for very long, but the few times i ran it for maybe 10 min or so, it never even got warm. it never showed any signs of wear either. there are a few river runners out there running them. i would ask B1 racing what his take on it is. cyclone covered some of the points i can think of. alignment could be a big issue if you ever wanted to make intake and motor placement changes.The Lenco style gets HOT !
