I am currently looking for a bell housing that will fit my 392 and receive a Borg Warner Velvet drive marine transmission 71C or 72C.
Don't suppose you have an older Spectra around the house as well?

We're looking at a similar project as your Sanger for my middle son right now. Just trying to find an older classic hull in restorable shape to hold a 354 Hemi which now sits in the corner of the shop.

My little boat was a 1957 17 foot Hondo with a blown 4.5 inch stroked 392 Chrysler Hemi, all glass. (Try flipping one of these at over 100MPH :o)
My wood boat is a 100% new hand varnished wood, 21 foot 1956 Chris Craft Capri with a 354 stroked to 426 Chrysler Marine Hemi with Hilborn fuel injection. It's all solid phil mahogony except bottom, multi layer kevlar. I have a 30 inch trim tab system installed to keep the front down and keep it flat on plane. It should go 65-70 easily....and should get there real quick........
Because I purchased all used, old stuff, I had enough left to build the 1966 Plymouth 572 KB Hemi 5 speed Dana "tow" car... just gotta figure out how to get the tow ball on with the fibergalss bumper and wheelie bars... :P :P
