O0 And now comes the last of the welding?

YUP

I did a no load, no prop today.
 All looked good. The clutch started to move at around 1800rpm.
 I did not have my laser tack on the hub but it looked slower then the drive.
 It starts out at 3x1.
 As I increased the motor RPM the clutches both moved, as expected, the clutches
 Topped out at 3000 RPM, right where I was hoping.
 I should be like .70x1 there ,I would guess around the top end for the prop, 3100RPM.
 I didn't run it long but It was quiet and smooth and looked to be running true.

More welding required .
IF IF IF  this year it will be a "Hard Water" test.
As in ice. Only thing open here is the river.
I'm thinking that may be an "Up the creek with out a paddle" thing
:D
