312 omc 460 outdrive gear question
« on: June 04, 2015, 07:23:31 am »
Hello,

Is recently bought a chris craft 312 from 1988 with the omc king cobra engine package.
Now one of the upper outdrive gears is broken and now that i have taken out the upper gear i saw that my that my upper gear ratio is 21/16 and this sould be 21/17 with the omc 460's.
Is this bad or should i just leave the 21/16ratio and replace it ?

Thanks Rien

No offence intended but put a TRS on it or at least a bravo!

I had an OMC on my first Stinger and it was JUNK!!!!! Nothing but problems and not a fun summer at all !
All my other Stingers (I have had five) had TRS. If your running big blocks then you need the TRS with the Borg Warner Velvet Drive transmissions. Try to get a good used set and scrap that OMC.

hey Rien

if you can get your hands on TRS, get them, for long transportation of your boat, they are essential. (easy build)
