    A little much? You could say so. Merc rated the #6 at 1000 H.P. & 1000 Ft. Lbs. Torque, when initially introduced. This was a bit on the conservative side for durability purposes. Later improvements & upgrades, such as dry sumping them, bearings, oils, etc., they could easily handle 1300+H.P. What kills them over the years of their evolution, is the superior prop technology, props with 4, 5 & 6 blades, and the larger diameter propellers. Nowadays, they are used with double, or more, their original H.P. rating. Great drives.[/QUOTE]So true. Thanks AirRide.

    Only the first one is sort of related, and its more related to DaveS's BP than this SSM.

    The correct patent directly related to the SSM shows a sterndrive. The first multiple pinion patent is from around 1930. Sorry I don't have the numbers ready to post.
