Velvet Drive Replacement

85 Wellcraft Saint Tropez I have twin 454s with velvet drives everything is there complete and working except Iím missing one transmission the tag on my existing transmission reads model number 10-05-011 and ratio E-1.5 all these transmissions look alike but but some come off straight drives some off v drives and the ratios are not even close to an exact match. Iím tryna put this old boat together and finding the transmission w out spending 1000ís is my issue. What can I get away with on matching up a port side transmission to my existing gear box w in respect to the existing transmission fore mentioned. Can anyone help me with this info I called Velvet Drive and it was no help.

Re: Velvet Drive Replacement

Is it a V-Drive? 10-05 designates a Velvet Drive 72C. 10-05-011 sounds like a V-drive unit number. V-drives came in 1.51:1 ratio. If you do not have the old transmission, be prepared to spend thousands.
