Drive Plates

The drive plate, or damper as it is often called, bolts to the engine flywheel and connects the engine to the transmission / gearbox splined shaft.

The damping is achieved by two methods:

R & D drive plates feature a special polyurethane moulding, designed to be stiff enough to transmit the engine power yet flexible enough to isolate vibration and shock. They are also designed to fail safe in the event of an emergency.

Drive-Force drive plates feature a ring of springs between the engine mount plate and the transmission spline plate.

Many engines start life fitted with a "standard" drive plate, however, many engine marinisers have their own special "standard". Therefore, to ensure we supply the correct drive plate for your engine, please advise us of the following information:

  • Outside diameter of back plate, and if it is required to locate in a register.
  • P.C.D. of fixing bolts, numbers and diameters.
  • Engine make and model.
  • Maximum engine horsepower and RPM.
  • Make, model and gearbox reduction.
  • Use of boat (i.e. commercial, pleasure, sailing etc.).

If you require any help determining the correct damper plate for your application, please fill in our drive plate questionnaire to let us know your requirements, and a member of our customer support team will contact you shortly.
