This is the TIGE-16-T and NOT the standard TIGE-16.
Look on the side of the base of your strut. It is small but you can see it if the strut is removed stamped into the base of the small side of the strut. It should read TIGE-16T if you have a T Model.
Otherwise, if you have the TIGE-16, THIS is the correct strut.
Fits boats with 1-1/8" driveshaft and 6 bolt mounting pattern
Has 6 Mounting Holes and includes brass shelled rubber strut bushings!
A few late 1996 models may have this 16 degree strut .
The previous version was a 15.45 degree strut.
Also fits Axis boats (but will say "Malibu" on the side). Will not fit XTI or FXI models.
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.
