Re: Casting number for 1930 model 100 strut

I do need to drill a new hole in the keel although I have one shaft log and hopefully that one is correct.
I have another photo of a strut off John K's model 100 although no casting number on it.

Re: Casting number for 1930 model 100 strut

Is it possible to use a different strut other than what was originally on the boat? This boat is getting new stringers and a 283 engine.

See the small number by the key slot? What is yours?
Do you have keys Jim?
I had my clum restored at Clawson Classic Instruments, he supplied the keys with it. He probably has them.

Are you seeking a replacement strut?
I may be if the two struts I have are not correct. I have 700009 and 1166 maybe (hard to see)
I have access to another model 100 same boat, that strut has a different shape and size. I'm not able to get a casting number yet.

Your image is probably over the limit size. Reduce the size a lot(under 1MB) and try again.

Jim, you say the cover on the oil pump is leaking? Make sure the gasket is installed with the little drain hole towards the bottom. Otherwise the oil accumulates in that area and seeps out around the bail.
The hole is at the bottom although I did not enlarge it.
