PLEASE NOTE : SOLID NOSE CONE HAS NO WATER PICKUP HOLES, & NO FITTINGS/HOSE! Just the nose cone and the epoxy!!!
The Solid nose cone kits are if you only need to stream line your case, and do not require low water pickups. This is a popular choice for I/O engines. No holes/fittings/hoses. Just the nose cone and epoxy kit. If you need a recommendation for which style of nose cone is right for you, please give us a call or email.
If you are using a smaller motor or the Mercury Inline gear case, please choose the ‘inline’ option, it is a shorter unit. Rule of thumb is any engines 90 hp or smaller need the inline kit. If you are smaller than 60hp, please call first, as the cone will require modification to work, and you might perfer to send in for factory installation.
Higher speed & proper water pressure
Nose cone kit contains all hardware for complete installation
Kit comes complete with ALMAG-35 top grade casting, epoxy, hose fittings and instructions.
Crescent shaped for superior and handling
The same superior design as our World Speed Record Holding Big Foot, low water pick-up cones.
High Water Flow Capacity
Allow surface Piercing props (choppers, cleaver style) to be run at maximum height for top speed and all out performance, while maintaining proper cooling to engine.
Shallow Water Access
Travel and fish waters, until now, were unable to be reaches with outboard motors having standard (side water pick-up) gear cases.
