    Default 1970 Evinrude Starflite SS Ad.

    Ran across this in my "old stuff" and thought some of you would like to see this. While working at Evinrude in the late 60's and early 70's a X-115 or one of these would show up in the plant for all of us to see Name:  Image.jpg

    Very cool!

    If you email me a high resolution scan (400dpi or greater) I can clean up the fold marks and make it look almost original.

    I have a much better one, no folds and in color. I'll look for it tonight.

    That blunt 1:1 would blow out and set you sideways. I made an epoxy nose cone for mine.
    Was good for well over 100 that way.

    Default Counter rotator option....

    ....was nice because you could use the merc props, a little better and more of a selection.
    Here is the plate that is needed to switch the input and output shafts.

    I always wondered how that was done! Thanks!

    We had an X115 that was counter rotated at the powerhead. We converted it back to left hand and kept the modified parts (starter, water pump housing, distributor, and advance/throttle linkage). I know of at least one driver that ran a stinger/ss in UJ that was a counter rotator at the powerhead.

    The Co-Ro plate I have turned up in some stinger parts I bought a few years ago. Before that I was under the impression that all the counter rotators were reversed powerheads as I still have never seen one of the counter gearcases. Takes a longer driveshaft but uses the same water pump housing as the standard.
    The later 1:1s and clubfoots had the pointy "Speedmaster style" gearcase and the early ones could be updated easily. The update made bigger difference on the 1:1s obviously because of the higher speeds.
