    it looks like he

    is offering a motor which makes 270 hp. he mentioned 2,400 - 2,900 rpm as the operating range which should give me something like 240hp & 500 ft# at 2,500 rpm...... my Walter V-Drives are 2.5:1. i am apparently over-propped for the Wedge motors with 300 HP/400ft# at 3,500 rpm. would i change the V-Drive reduction ratio's ? or ?????? (still hoping for 30 mph cruise and good economy out of fully dependable motors)

    You could always install a pair of 502's that will give you 380 hp each, and make parts in the future easy to come by

    So did you decide to rebuild or repower?
