The 360 Commander with 454s came with 22x26 T36 props.

Thks John, do you know the size of the shaft?

1.375" x 116.5"

Thks. It seems like either you were part of the building team, or have spared a good part of your time around the CC...

I am trying to bring an old 36 back to life, and if it's weren't for the commander club I won't be able to find much about it

Thanks very much

Thks Al, it seems that is the consensus, and that looks like it.
Quick question, is your 36 gas or diesel

Mine had 427 gas engines , I just repowered with Mercruiser Horizon 8.1s with ZF 63A transmissions. I left the props and replaced the 1 3/8'' original shafts with 1 3/8'' Aquamet 22 shafts to handle the extra HP and torque. I put it in the water hopefully next weekend!

Al:

how many Horsepower had the 427, and how many the new Mercruiser's do have?

I think with a marine engine torque is mostly king. Thats one reason the 427s were a good marine engine as they prob pushed a shade over 300hp and produced about 400ft lbs of torque at 2800-3000rpm. The 8.1s are undersquare motors with the stroke longer than the bore and make about 375hp and produce 490ft lbs of torque at 3200 rpm. You can get 420hp 8.1s that produce 520 ft lbs, but they do it at a higher rpm--I thought the 370-375 version was a bit more torquey at the lower rpm. So both motors do pretty well for gas motors on the torque side and at relatively lower rpms much like a diesel does. The earlier 8.1s had a few problems with water ingestion in somewhat rare cases, but I think a couple of design changes resolved those. You would need to get new transmissions(if yours are paragons as was mine) as the 427s came in right and left rotating configuration--the 8.1s all go one way.

Al, did you reached the water?

How are your engines performing?
