I've got a 2.83:1 gearbox
, and a small prop aperture turning a 16 inch prop with a 19 pitch
. The aperture doesn't have any room to add any more diameter to the prop.
If I run her hard I get cavitation until the boat
gets up to speed. This makes docking
interesting as I have next to no thrust, and not much prop walk until the boat
I don't get very much thrust out of her into the current
, as the prop cavitates at high RPM's. I can reach better than full RPM
. I'd like to find a 2.14:1 transmission
and see if I can drop the pitch
back towards the recommended 16x9 for my 3JH2E engine
Searching around, I haven't found much if any information about where folks go to have work
done on these transmissions.
