Re: reverse rotation engines

Thanks Jeff, I have everything for the reverse running engine except the the drive gear that runs the distributor and oil pump can I use the drive gear I got from napa or does it have to be a special one just reverse running motors. I have new long block just not the distributor drive gear.

reverse rotation engines

Re: Chrysler Marine Exhaust manifolds and risers

Hi Bill , Mr. Cool is a little cheaper I think around 254 dollars for the manifolds but marineenginesparts is the cheapest for the end plates and the copper tube. Thanks
