    It's an 89 model drive for a 5.7 engine. Has a 1.41:1 gear ratio. Your 460 is running a 1.43:1 gear ratio.

        I don't think that part number is a king cobra drive as I have seen it mentionned for a 350 engine here. http://www.speedwake.com/upload/show...threadid=21452 The King is the largest and is for the 460.

          careful, there were some dog clutch units labeled as a king as opposed to the cone clutch king units. nothing between the two really interchange much.bayliners in that year range with 460's were notorious for it.
          no tech questions by PM, they wont get answered.

            Pat...according to my 1989 OMC factory manual model 985689 is the drive for the 5.7, 5.8 and the 350 King Cobra for standard right hand rotation. If you are looking for the 1989 460 right hand rotation you need model 985691.
