Close coupled (sometimes call plug-in) setups connect the transmission directly to the sterndrive with no U joints or drive shaft visible inside the boat. This is the common configuration on side-by side installs or the rear engine/s on staggered or multi engine setups.
We have tailstocks on hand for Mercury TRS, SSM 3,4,5 & 6. We also have our new NXT adapter kit to install our transmission on the 700 NXT package.
