Borg Warner Model Question

New to the boards. Hello all. I have a 1976 38' Californian LRC. I need information on the model transmission*they installed in the Boat. I know that it is Borg Warner but that is all.* It has twin 185 diesel perkins.*Also where I could obtain information on the transmission. I.E. Manel or whatever.

I have looked at the trans. for Serial #, and Model # and cannot locate.

Your help would be very much appreciated.

Borg Warner Model Question

I have 1976* 6.354M's, but they are NA's.* I would think they would be the same as yours, 70 series Borg Warner Velvet Drive transmissions.* Probably 70, 71, or 72*model number.* Based on your horsepower, I would expect yours to be 72C velvet drives.* A link to the manual is below:

Good luck

RE: Borg Warner Model Question

it should be on a tag around the top of the tranny,if you have 2 engines one will be* 2to1 tranny and the other will be a 1.9to one tranny if it is the old tybe borg warners,they do that so both props turn outboard,that is if both engines turn the same way which they probleley do
