Centre mounted diesel with a long tail.

Perhaps we could recap any older ideas and add a few new ones.

I would like to run a nissan SD 22 4 cylinder diesel coupled through a PRM 150 transmission with a long tail.

Has anyone got any new ideas or problems encountered.perhaps some new pictures.

This what you're talking about?



Well, I guess there might be some other examples out of Asia.  They seem to love them over there.

Hi tom.Same principal the main difference is that the engine remains fixed and the shaft has a universal/CV joint which pivots the shaft down. the shaft has stays that holdit down. i was hoping that more people had used them and would be able to send pictures or what not to do ideas into the pot. Hans on"Waicatea" has a nice unit
