    this could be interesting.
    what have you used for the filler mixture ?
    have you tack welded any little bit of metal onto the case to get the filler to grip onto ?

    keep the pics coming on this one

    We have typically found that the stock nitro case handled better then an SST60 case on a v bottom, sometimes faster also depending on where the boat ran trim wise.

    Make sure you get the cone shape right so it continues to feed the water pick ups.

    Cheers,

    this gearcase is supposed to be the bigfoot 2.42 20 inch mid

    but I did not think the big gearcase had 4 water intakes ?
    mine is the big one and only has 3 inlets per side

    Looking very good. shape looks nice and no welding been needed !!!
    hope this works out good for you. is this a very tough filler to sand down ?

    for the prop there was a special omc thrust washer made for the silverstreak/srx props a long time ago that closed the gap a little bit and did not let
    exhaust flare out too much over the blades.
    I have a 13 3/4x 23 prop the same as that one. but I just have the thrust washer same as you.
