    Not true. I think some of the high performance lowers did. What kind lower are you looking for?

    Factory never sold one. Racers made LHR lower out of RHR driving off the REV gear. Not ideal.

    Yes true. there are no counter gear cases for an inline.

    Don't even confuse the guy talking about ancient direct drive race stuff, in the remote chance there are a few floating around for sale, they will be impossible to run and keep on the water for anything more than a couple weekends a year, rendering them pretty much useless to all but a few guys in the country.

    You need to work on your reading comprehension. Go find parts for that direct drive case so it can be used and serviced every 5 or 10 hours. Better yet, go find one for sale in the first place.

    This is exactly what I said. For the purpose of this thread, there are no counter lower units available.

    Now go back to whatever hole you crawled out of, douchebag.

    Apparently you can't read a post. The original question was did they make a counter rotation lower unit for an in-line six . The answer is yes If you look at my first post it states that and it also states that it's a high-performance Lower unit. I also ask what type of lower unit the post is looking for. You double down on your first response that stated that there was no counter rotation lower unit which is incorrect and false . Then you show your stupidity by posting about direct drive units times that it needs to be rebuilt and finding one for sale . None of those questions were asked in the original post apparently you can't comprehend that It just shows your lack of of knowledge of lower units for in-line six and it also your inability to read and comprehend what somebody is asking. Then you insult me and tell me to go crawl back in my hole . It just seems every time you post you're wrong and wrong and wrong again it truly shows your stupidity ...

    ok man, you win, there are counter rotation lowers all over the place for inlines, they'll hold up for lake boats and you can get parts to service them.



    Funny thing is everyone who actually knows these things agrees with me. Dumbass.

    That's the problem with this site, there's always some ass hole like this troll Velocity that feels he needs to talk about some odd ball part that doesn't pertain to the intent of the question just to try and prove someone wrong. The answer that matters is NO, they did not make them for your application. The long answer is yes, but they're rare, service parts are NLA, and they are direct drive RACE parts. If there's a CR SSM doesn't make a bit of difference to the OP so it doesn't even need to be mentioned... Unless you're 30velocity trying to make yourself look like you know something.

    Again. Go back to the original question. Did mercury make a counter rotation for a in-line six. The answer is yes . Original question didn't ask for your input on how the gearcase works, if it holds up, or the application it's used for. I don't know why you feel like you need to interject are your opinions on this simple question. It's truly a simple question. As for name calling?? It just truly shows what a little man you are.

    Didn't Merc make a left hand gear set for the 135 back around 1970? They were 1.78 to 1 and I don't think you will find a set anywhere.

    Not that I am aware of. Ive got 2 1.78 gear cases and an extra set of gears. (I built an XS case with 1.78's I like the ratio) During this era you either Reversed the powerhead rotation or you drove off the REV gear if you needed LHR out of a FGS lower unit. Merc made a reverse rotation kit for the powerhead. And they made an extra heavy duty bronze bearing carrier that was used to run LHR off the REV gear. Neither scenario seemed to be very common. Ive only seen a handful of FGS lower units wearing LHR props during the 60's-70's. Gene Lanham remembers running his FGS case off the REV gear to get LHR back in the late 60's when needed.


    Of course the racing SM/SSM and BP/SBP lower units were available in LHR. I think the very early Sportmaster was available in LHR as well during the early 60's. The only one that shifts are the BP/SBP, but they are rare and problematic and only fit the SBP/BP mid.
