I bet i have a solid 2.5" of shaft showing.

    Just got off the phone with both Nettles and Acme and they are both telling me "no way" - thinking that when my driveshaft was replaced the dealer put one on that is too long and I just never noticed. Got some homework to do it looks like - urgh.

    Todd at Acme also explained the vibration or growl that I could experience - said if there is less than 3/4" between the prop and rudder I may get it around 2k rpm. Wonder if that is the "growl" others have talked about with the 1433 or whatever it was.
    Did you keep your old shaft? The shafts are model and year specific. how much clearance did you have with your old prop?

    Thanks Rick.

    No - dealer did all the work. I plan to review the paperwork today and see if I can find the part number they used or any description from the repair. When I talked to the SC tech he gave me the length and part number but said it isn't stamped on the shaft anywhere so I need to measure. Seems to me that it's about 1.5-2" too long though.



    Hopefully the dealer will play ball with me on this one. If not I'm wondering if I should replace it myself. Tempted do a test drive as is and see how it goes. Just don't want to make a several hundred dollar mistake.

    We got different boats bro but honestly i wouldnt mess with it in the water till your 100% confident.

    I just looked at mine and i got 3 or 4 inches from prop to rudder.

    I only have 1 to 1.5 inches from back of the prop to the shaft strut. I think you got the wrong shaft and i id be more worried about if your prop flexes under initial load it would hit the rudder.

    you could probably pull the shaft and take it to a machine shop for cheaper then buying a new one just a thought.

    That sucks, Berg. Hopefully, the dealer will own up to it and put in the right shaft and not charge you. It seems pretty obvious that they put in one that is too long.

    So now the confusion sets in. Just measured the shaft. SC said it should be 49". I've got 39" outside the boat and roughly 10" in the bilge to where it connects to the tranny. Seems right on paper, just not in practice. Why... is it possible I've got some mutant albatross here?

    Also just measured my old OJ 13.7x17.5 and it is within about 1/8" of the same fit as the 1847. So I guess it's possible it wasn't a problem until I went and made it a problem. Just doesn't seem right, doesn't feel right.
