    Default Are SST-60 and Stinger parts interchangeable?

    Are SST-60 and Stinger parts interchangeable? Can one replace a Stinger power head with a sst-60 power head, center section or lower unit?

    Yes the 56 powerhead will fit on a Stinger mid and nitro gearcase but you will have to use the 56 base plate or an SST60 base plate.
    You can also check out Hevi Kevi's 56 adapter plate in the racing parts for sale section, really nice work.

    The adaptor that hevi kevi makes is real nice, also makes a real nice tuner to go with it.
    A real nice piece of machinery, I think he also does the solid lower mounts, his adaptor also comes with solid mount built in.
    well worth a look. and cheap at the price.

    Here is a direct link to HeviKevi's adapter & tuner. You can go back to the beginning of this thread to read the whole story.

    Any advantages to the sst60 center section or advantages over the sst60 lower to a nitro lower?

    I take it by nitro your referring to the small 15 shaft stuff, sst60 lower has the nosecone already built into the gearcase, and I think you might find the clutch dog is stronger on sst60, or atleast
    on the later sst60.
    if by centre section your referring to adaptor, that has solid mounts built in. as far as I know thats about it. might be more

    So the nitro I can just weld closed the top two water inlets and add the nose cone and it should be ok? Does the SSt-60 have reverse cooling?

Size:  195.6 KBThe nitro and the SST60 gearcase are basically the same. No need for the nose cone and you can epoxy or silicone the top two holes. I did one step more than that, I drilled out the small drain hole at the bottom and block the three top holes. The two top holes I used silicone and the bottom hole I used epoxy, I was experimenting and it's been like that for about 5 years now.

    That looks a very nice prop , I see its a ron hill prop, what size is that one ?
    like the plate to run quiet or noisy when you like ha ha I am doing very similar so can run open for over-hub and closed for thru-hub.
    the whole gearcase looks in very nice condition, better than a lot I see with broken skegs.
