635Re: Small air cooled inboard motors
- Apr 11, 2005Here is the link for ZF/Hurth marine transmission web site. Select
transmissions/engine matching program/select brands for a list of
supported manufactures. It is interesting that Hatz is not listed for
any model. The prices shown on Northern Tool seem a little high. For
that money you can get a Kubota like Mr. White has on his Rescue
Minor. That is one good engine and 800 hours already? Wow!
If you want to use a smaller industrial engine like the HATZ, you will
have to do some improvising with a belt drive like Mr. White did. I'm
sorry to hear that he no longer has a reverse gear. He's right that
it's not used much, but still for the peace of mind.... (Who am I to
talk? I'm missing a spring on my 30 HP Tohatsu and I don't have
reverse now either.)
