    Lightbulb 1971 21' gt inboard

    Hi,
    i own a 1970 or 1971 21' gt donzi inboard, hull # c-21-39. Power plant is a mopar 375 c.i. [# 077400] with a 3 duce manifold. The ''v''-drive is 1.15 ratio and the # is 7822,[7560 od]
    i would like to know if their are other donzi inboards in existance ? Looking for all the information that may be avaiable.
    Needless to say i need some imput from the experts.
    Regards l.j. Staral

    well raise a glass and think of me...
    When I'm home again,
    boys, I'll be buying!

    we had a previous topic on this a few years back... if I remember right Bud Dawson from Fla Marine Service originally sold 4 of the tri-power 440-375's to Donzi for the 21's, and I *think* one more for an 18? ... memory is hazy...

    L.J.,
    Without the numbers, I would make a guess that there were 20 I/O Donzis made to every v drive - probably a much higher percentage. You have a rare boat there. What color combo is it? Bill

    Garry,
    I have almost forgotten about a v drive whine - a highly cool sound only surpassed by a blower whine - . You could always upload a video to youtube and then provide a link, but I think this site allows video uploads which would save a step or two. Did you get and try another prop yet?

    oh - well. I PMed LJS that he would get a better response is this section. And then he got many responses over in Ask Mike.

    sorry for the diversion...
