I really wouldnt recommend installing this. We had one on one of our boats (came installed when we bought it) and it performed much better once we removed it. Its really a band-aid some people put on to hide misalignment.

The damper plate that resides between the engine and transmission is all you need... it will be smooth as silk compared to any outboard or I/O.

Here's a pic from the back of my engine. I would assume your engine is already set up this way also. I would just align the engine/trans to the shaft and run with it too!

jLeuck thanks for the pictures,now I understand what you mean ,we have already the original part in between the Steyr and the ZF gearbox,What I am waiting for is the flexible coupling between the gearbox and shaft flange. It is a part like this sits just after the gearbox mounted to the flange and connected to the shaft coupling.





I need this part also for taking the propeller a little back to the end of the boat so I can use a higher diameter prop.

Sorry for that
I ordered a flexible coupling and the wrong part show up this morning so our lunch has postponed to Sunday afternoon.The part is coming from 1200km and right now it is on its way to mersin , instead of getting it posted with cargo we go with the old way,asked the supplier to correct his fault and send me the part with a passenger bus coming from Istanbul.Let's see if I will get the correct part in the morning I will post it here.
