    The drive looks fine.The prop pulley having no front support would not be a problem I hope.What size prop does the fleet use? I am thinking of using the L13/15 engine because of availability with the stock ignition/fuel system.I need info on the Guibo or the crankshaft flex coupling.Is it a car driveshaft part? Can you provide a part number or car spec. I need to swing a 72 42 prop at approx 2000rpm for an aircamper. Thanks and keep up the good work.

    Your assumption about prop pulley is incorrect. The main output 1 1/2" shaft goes thru the pulley & extension to the end and supported by collars internally, so there is no possibility of flexation at that point. The prop I will be swinging will be a custom Culver of approx. 76 X 38 and with the redrive should not be a problem reaching desired RPM
