  • 1995 maristar 200VRS transmission 1:1 or 1:1.5

    I have a 95 maristar 200 VRS. I've been told by wakeprops that all mastercrafts with 1 1/8 shafts have the 1:1.5 powerslot transmission. However the sticker on my transmission clearly shows the Hurth HSW D is 1:1. Now the manual is also showing me the 1:1.5 maristars come with a 14x18 stock prop. Just so happens that my boat does have a 14x18 prop.

    Does anybody know if it's a 1:1 or 1:1.5 transmission?

    Stickers don't lie, do they? however all your info indicates a 1.5:1, what size is your prop shaft? maybe a call to indmar or hurth is in order.

      I have the same boat, 14X18 prop, 1 1/8 shaft. If I remember correctly, the actual transmission is 1:1 but the V-drive gear box is 1.5:1

      Of course I've been wrong once or twice in my life.

        my shaft is 1 1/8". that would make sense that the gear reduction would be in the v-drive. thanks for your help.

          I changed my V-drive oil this weekend, and just to confirm, the tag on my V-drive box said:
          Ratio.....1.46/1

          The transmission is 1:1 and the reduction IS in the V-drive.

            ahhudgines: You use SAE30 in the v drive? What about the tranny, 15W40 or Dextron III?

            Thanks for your help.

              I'm pretty sure you can tell with the VIN I think easttxskier posted a good explanation
              This forum is amazing with quality people.: I did not think i'd ever own an Inboard. Now I finally have a gorgeous 94 205 I am glad I have ya'll backing me up.

                Yes, the V-drive uses SAE30. There is a tag on the side of the V-drive facing the fuel tank. There are some models of V-drives that use a different oil and your model number will be stamped on the tag.

                My manual calls for Dextron ATF in the transmission.

                  Hello, is your 14x18 prop a 4 or a 3 blade? Is it the orig prop? I heard the 14x18 4 blade was the OEM prop for my 1995 maristar but don't know if it originally had a 3 or a 4 blade. Currently I have a 3 blade (size unknown) on the boat but just got an OJ 14x18 4 blader, I'll be curious to see the performance difference between the two props. Thanks
