Igso 540 question

Postby redman01 » Thu Mar 23, 2017 11:33 am

I bought a igso 540 and I have a 12 foot stossel needs new riggin anyhow so prop size ain't a matter. So my question is what would I need to do to make it a direct drive? instead of having the gear. I would love to keep the gear but I think the motor would be to long for the setup. Any help would be appreaciated thank you. Or if anyone would be interested in buying it I wouldn't be opposed to selling the motor

There is a spool kit for them but you will need to go electronic ignition, I'd suggest leave the gear on it, as it helps get the rpm higher to produce correct boost pressures otherwise it will be a slug.
I never finish anyth,,,.
