1992 Prostar Velvet Drive Transmission help!!

I have a 1992 Mastercraft Prostar with the 351 linked to velvet drive transmission, and I'm hoping to get some kind of help with part numbers. I have called and searched high and low on the internet be seem to come up short. The model number on the transmission is 10-17-206 with 1:52:1 ratio. I'm needing seals, gaskets, and clutch kit but can't seem to find the parts for this particular transmission. Can anyone with this help?!?!

+1 on skidim. They know pretty much everything about that boat. I have the exact same boat. Make sure to let them know 1:52:1 ratio. I am pretty sure you have the 351HO with powerslot. Now the big question. What color?

I just rebuilt my tranny as well. Google the 1:5:1 Velvet drive. You will get a good parts list.

There are a lot of guys on here that just talk.

I had slippage coming up to speed, I just replaced my pressure plates and used Dexron V, overfilled a touch to replace pressure due to thinner viscosity at temp.

These older transmissions are pressure driven, and a lot of fluids are thinner.

Science.

Worked for me. And no two of these issues are the same.

My advice is just what has worked for me, I claim to not be an expert with Mastercrafts at all, or period. But the transmissions are the same as in remote controlled cars. Slipper trannys pretty much. These are pressure-driven. The original owner's manual states to use Mercon. Well, they don't make that anymore and it was thicker, and had a greater viscosity. The owner's manual states to use only that.

Well, here we are, 26 years later, and the recommended Mercon, Mercon II and II are no longer available. So enter Mercon 5 (V) not recommended for older transmissions

Overfill your tranny a touch. : > Just a little, maybe a pint. Issue resolved. Clean the old stuff out, overfill by a pint.

Again, pressure, thinner, worked for me.

Velvet Drive tranny's work well with 10 wt. hydraulic fluid. Mine is smoother and quieter with hydraulic fluid compared to ATF.
