Almost have the cav plates done, waiting on a stuffing box so I can bolt the plates in. After re working the down pedal and putting in a new cav rod I have 1 1/2Ē on the down now. Also got all of the red pin striping done, trying to make a turd look kinda good, April meet is looking good for this thing

Boat looks great .
I have never seen a v-drive with the motor facing forward. How rare is a setup like yours?

It's not rare, most or all circle vdrives are setup that way, helps them turn left, like my vdrive the engines backwards and it always wants to pull right, I'm always sawing left on the wheel to make it go straight...

Thanks, itís no show boat but itís fun.

Not as rare as it seems, it rolls  in the prop through the corners when you turn left, some drag boats in the 60ís even ran off the front of the crank
