I got it from Harbor Models, The motor and driveshafts are different sizes. It's a tricky piece without a micrometer.

I certainly hope I am completely wrong and no harm comes to woodybob's beautiful Chris~Craft.
I was the only one to touch the C~C.

I prolly could have used my cell phone, but didn't. We were very happy when the 1st AD said "that's a wrap".
Bob's Hellene was the featured boat, while Chrissy K worked the background. The pond was full of bamboo droppings which fouled props and rudders, frustrating the captains & crew.
The show is scheduled to air in July.

Call Dave at HM. Tell him what you have. He should be able to hook you up.
818. 626.292.1617 I didn't see the red ones on his site, but that doesn't mean anything. Those look like the ones used on the big D.

Thanks Pat! Kim had mentioned HM and I had spoke to Dave at 9:30 this morning but just thought I might save a trip by seeing if you had one in your poscket. It was worth asking.
Do let me know when you will be at the lake. I'm looking to clear a shelf.
