Looking for a gear for my boat
Ok here's the scoop, the fellow that owned my boat before me figured that he'd just take out the atomic4 that was in it and install a diesel that he had kicking around.
Now the diesel runs awesome, but the problem is the boat doesn't move, due to the fact that its a 3:1 reduction gear.. and with the prop being set up for like 3000rpm and the new setup only giving it oh say 600 rpm wide open you c an see the problem..
I've done the math and theres no way I can get enough prop under the boat to use the existing gear.
So I'm wondering how hard you guy's think it will be to find a 1:1 or maybe 1.5:1 gear.
as well where to begin looking
and what information do I need to search for it, I belive the engine is a Yabeke or something like that. its a little 3 cyl. I will attach a photo.
thanks for the input
