    Default Back to work on the diesel surface drive

    Check here to get the history.

    It just wasn't fast enough on my big boat.
    I couldn't get the prop to surface with the CVT so I parked it while I thought about it for a year. I've removed the CVT and installed stock GoDevil sprockets and belt with a 1.5 to 1 ratio. with the engine tach at 900 rpm my prop tach reads 600 rpm. This will give me a little more torque at the prop than the 1.4 to 1 ratio they use on the 35 SD. The toughest part is getting the motor output shaft and the prop input shaft parallel and aligned. I think I've got that licked and now I have to be patient until spring. I hope breakup comes early this year. The little Kubota purrs like a kitten. I ran it up to 3400 rpm last night. It's surprisingly smooth and quiet. The books say it will burn under one gallon per hour at 3400.
