    Flex plate changeout on 175 Hinos-gctid827133

    My starboard engine/transmission rattle is getting really annoying. So far I've found lots of information on the r&r on the 32xx boats but nothing on the 38's with the six cal Hinos. My main concerns are if the outer/forward bellhouse section, where the rear motor mounts are located needs to come off and is there any machining involved. I plan to use the Centa units.

    I've checked the idle on both engines and they idle at about 850.

    I have had the centra units installed. And yes there is some machining to be done.... but it is worth it!

    There is nothing more embarrassing than having others on board and having to bump the revs up all the time just to shut the noise up.

    The centra's are silent and strong....

    In some what of an emergency situation I pulled one engine out of gear at 1800rpm's then threw it back into gear. The centra plate took all of that.
