I'm converting my Team Pro M5 from a clutch to clutch-less. Keeping the square drive, nose mount (sealed cable mount) . What I will need for parts, clutch-less adapter, new cable, new shaft tube/liner. Optional replace front mount, will need spacer of 3.8mm for EZ-start (zenoah engine mount plate is thicker then new mount) turns out that the coil relocating bracket is 3.2mm only need spacers on bottom of EZ-start. Looks like I will have to change engine mount holes...mmm have to measure CG to keep as close as possible, maybe just use tuned pipe & header location.

Engine is mounted :) need to order drive cable & liner & tube. Also found boo boo's from my driving that need fixing.

I have cut a piece 3/8 x 0.028 wall, brass tubing, installed the brass compression fitting, I left the tube long (sticking out of transom) until I talk wiith Tony to order Teflon liner and cable. I also fixed the boo boos. Once the drive system is fully installed the radio box and water pump will be reinstalled.

Did not have a chance to talk to Tony, the brass tube is not cut flush with transom,  it exits transom and enters the SPDIII drive about 3/16 of an inch. The cable  was measured from the engine drive to transom as Tony suggested on Enforcer Direct. I did order the teflon sleeve but it felt tight in the brass tube so I have not used it. Tony's original tube in my team pro was not brass but steel, I may change to a steel tube in the future.  

Had my team pro out for the first time since I removed the clutch unfortunately no pictures.

little chop 1-2".

First run neutral setup with a ABC 2716/3 blade, balanced, sharpened, polished by me.(4 hrs)

Lunching I was nervous because of spinning prop. The first time to launch without clutch, no pit crew, idle was just fast enough so engine would not stall. Drove boat out onto the lake, turned with the chop and applied throttle.

Bogged down, poor hole shot, I think cavitation, after about 5 ft zoom picked up speed, after 20 ft full speed,

hit chop spun out and stalled

Second run spun out, barrel roll stalled.

Before 3rd run, change prop to ABC 2716 15* /2, slight upward tilt of SPDII, downward of trim tabs. 

Tthird run, boat settles down, still poor hole shot, I think top speed is more but did not do a GPS run, no pictures or video at this time.

Well outside temperature is going below freezing at night now, boating season is done for another year. The best and finest so far:0) I pulled my M5 out of the boat, few of the bolts were messed up, but planning to replace the top end anyway so a few extra bolts no biggy. Just have to figure what top end I want to put on.

While doing work on my boat I was thinking of installing "flush mount" water pick ups. has anyone done this and kept the ISO pad?

Comment by Gordon T Haley on March 13, 2014 at 5:29am

Well I went and did it. I built a 28.5 Zenoah with a Tiger King 1.6 stroker crank. The only hiccup I had so far was the Tiger King wrist pin bearing and the Zenoah 36mm piston. can't wait to fire it up then send it to get modified even more. Yes this will be going into my Team Offshore.

I received my new ISO pad, and SPDIII mount today, Great service as always. I'm going to install the flush mounts and see how it goes this summer. I have a few weeks to go before the water gets soft again. Snow is melting but still have 3 feet in the yard.

These pictures are of the new Zenoah 28.5+1.6mm stroker that will be going into my Team Pro Offshore. The engine is made up of a 29cc(28.5cc) zenoah, high speed bearings, zero drag seals, Tiger King 1.6mm full circle stroker crank, WT-813A carb, Ron Buck "bat wing" carb shaft, Daniel and the guys will be putting in a lightened piston and doing machine work on cylinder and case.

If my calculations are correct (0.8754x36x36x29.6)=30.129cc. I should get a torque monster when all is said and done.

Awesome Gordan! I have close to the same setup. I did go stroked crank, but not full circle. Major amount of headwork has been done, and let me tell you.... you have to learn how to drive your boat all over again! Lots of power! I am spinning a 2814 (lightened, polished, balanced) and can't really top the boat out yet. It gets crazy light no matter how i set it up. Drive is pointing more downward than i would like it just to keep the bow down. I'm waiting on Daniel now, going to get a Silex Pro for this beast and go back to a stock 29cc for the Man O War. good luck and keep us informed on how it goes!
