6 Mounting Holes.
Includes the new brass strut bushings!
All of our struts and bushings are brand new.
All struts are precision bored to meet ABYC and Navy standards for
light press fit of brass-shelled rubber bearings. These interchangeable
bearings are installed with stainless steel cup point set screws for a firm
The length of the strut barrel (and bearing) is at least four times the
diameter of the prop shaft. The thickness of the strut barrel is equal to at
least one-fourth the diameter of the prop shaft. The average thickness
of the leg(s) is determined by mathematical formula prescribed by
ABYC and Navy standards require backing plates or backing washers
with four-bolt mounting, but not with six-bolt mounting, for shaft
diameters up to four inches.
We take special pride in precision machining bases of all struts so
the parts are interchangeable from boat to boat, and specified shaft
angles are maintained.
