Strut - Mastercraft 1986 and Up With 1 Inch Drive Shaft 16 Degree - Includes New Bearings
Fits 1986 up Mastercraft boats with 1" driveshaft and 8 bolt mounting pattern (16 degree).
Has 8 Mounting Holes and includes brass shelled rubber strut bushings!
A few in 1986 had a rare strut that was 1" shorter in height.
This strut measures 7-3/4" high from mounting base to bottom of the barrel at the prop end.
This is an aftermarket strut and will not have Mastercraft on the side
Note: This strut will not fit early model 86 boats.
Height of strut is 7-3/4" from the mounting surface to the rear of the strut bottom.
Marine Hardware 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 mechanical lock. 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 the ABYC.
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.
