  • 26' Project. Perkins 250hp jackshafted to ??? Need help

    Hello guys. I am new to this forum as well as to marine diesel engines for that matter. Well, i got refered here from other forums and they told me some of you guys have sort of the same setup am after.

    Well, I have a 26' center console Proline that has a 10' beam. Its a project. Had twin 225hp Yamahas on a bracket. I sold the bracket and yamahas and bought me a Perkins Range4 M275ti .

    My goal: Install the engine under the console. Have a jackshaft run from the engine to the outdrive. Now, everyone tells me this engine will destroy most bravo outdrives, so a friend told me to just go straight shaft.

    Does anyone here have a similar setup? I need all the help and knowledge I can get my hands on. ANy help on the subject would be greatly appreciated.
