Hello mate

I use the SC46 marine which is the predecessor to the ASP badge and I am told almost identical. For conventional straight submerged drive I run it on a 19/19 prop. It runs well on this size in either Mocom, RG, or Prop Shop props. Some say that these engines can pull even bigger sizes. I tried a 19/24 but it loaded the engine too much.

Mine is set up with the Prestwich competition tuned pipe. Pipe length on mine is around 30cm measured from the widest part of the cone along the centre line of the manifold to the centre of the glow plug. Not sure if this measurement will be different with a Just Engines tuned pipe?

Other members might share their experiences.
But if I can be of further help, you are welcome to ask questions.
Cheers
Craig :-))

  I know that this may seem silly, but don't make the same mistake as me.  I bought an as new Irvine 46 marine from Ebay for my next A class boat.  Needed a pipe and manifold for it so went to the Just engines site and found just what was wanted, especially the manifold with the wide bend to get exhaust around the fuel tank. When it arrived , it fitted perfectly EXCEPT when you mount the engine at the required angle to get the shaft out of the bottom of the boat, because JE's standard manifolds are straight, the exhaust points at the bottom of the boat as well.
 
Just Engines were very good when I phoned to explain and said if I sent it back, they would effectively angle it up the required amount (at cost) , which they did . Simply didn't occur to me when I ordered as I was so caught up in measuring bolt spacing on the engine for fixing the manifold etc!!  Another silver hair moment!  Somewhere on their site when you look for it, they do mention special requirements for boats. Didn't spot that till afterwards

Well said Kurt!


The manifold on my SP46/ASP engine  was hand made by the same fellow, Bernard holder. And it was at the correct angle for my installation with water cooling.
I should however add that I would not at all knock the products and service from Just Engines. From what I have seen they are a great supplier with excellent service and if buying bespoke products the key thing is to specify exactly what you want.
