can anyone tell me what the phrase 'pinon de cola' would mean in relation to a boating term or part. the middle n has got the squiggle on top

any attempt to translate using dictionary just made me laugh.

Well a Google search turns up pictures of gear wheels, mostly with reference to making model helicopters. Piñon is a pinion or wheel or gear whilst cola will not in the queue sense but in reference to something at the tail end. Looking at the pictures of how the motion of a prop shaft is used to turn wheels it looks as though it's something like drive pinion or driveshafts. Would it be something to do with the way that the propellors or screws are turned?
