    Here is DaveS's cutaway BP foot he made from one with a cracked case (in case you thought he was just cracked enough to make something like this from a good case)

    Reverse Throttle Limit Kit for BP lower unit

    The Mercury part number for the Reverse Limit kit is A-49248A1 in case any one has one of these old kits occupying space in their parts bins. As Mercury says: THIS KIT MUST BE INSTALLED IN A SINGLE-LEVER MERCONTROL OR SERIOUS DAMAGE TO THE LOWER UNIT WILL OCCUR !!
    I will say many lower units were damaged by not using this kit to limit control travel in reverse.

    Sam - I noticed that you have not talked about the BP exhaust. As I remember, it exhausted above the horizontal plate/water and sounded very throaty. Sounded awesome when 4 of them were cooking along behind me at speed. Even more awesome when they came out of the water and "barked". Sounded like a thousand pound dog, as opposed to a stacker which sounded like a thousand pound hornet. I think we ran 2 left and 2 right hand rotation...long shafts on the inner engines and short shafts on the outers. Also, regarding the shifting issue...as I remember, in the Offshore boats, we shut the engines down to shift and then restarted in gear. Damn, those days were fun.

    Good point Steve.

    The immediate successor to the BP style Speedmaster was the right hand Super Speedmaster with an adapter to put it under the later BP mid.

    I'll make another new thread with the next unit used in racing
