When making potentially dangerous or financial decisions, always employ and consult appropriate professionals. Location: Anchorage, AK Well, Since new guys are asking stupid question I guess I will jump on the bandwagon. Location: Des Moines, IA Boat Motor My buddy and I have made duck boat mud motor out of a weedeater and the motor runs fine but when you put in the water the motor dies.

Prior to this motor I built one using a 31cc bolens motor that I purchased at Lowes for $69.

Location: Texas I have been looking through this very long thread over the past few days.
I am planning on building a long tail mud motor similar to rippedoffs design with a few changed of my own. Does anyone have any advise for building a prop for a mud motor or finding a decent priced prop. Location: Texas I forgot to say that I'm not trying to break any speed records.
Cost to build this one was probably around $250 or so maybe close to $300 - I can't recall exactly.


Is there like a 90 degree elbow gearbox thing I can buy that I could bolt to the shaft that would make it so I could put a horizontal propeller on it. CatBuilder Previous Member   I'd be VERY interested in one of these as well. CatBuilder Previous Member   I believe it's called a 90 degree drive. Location: Eustis, FL Agreed, you can turn the output on a vertical shaft engine to horizontal if you want, but the wise fabricator just uses a horizontal engine in the first place and eliminates the need for the 90 degree leg, not to mention the power loses that come with it. I've used live axles from cars to make this setup on rare occasions, just remove one of the axle tubes and weld it closed and U joint the thing to what ever you're attempting to drive. Location: Eustis, FL Piston, I think he wants to make a straight shaft setup, but use his vertical lawn mower engine, which is an interesting choice in itself.
If you go with either of the above you can KISS and cheap But is the last S the problem ? Originally Posted by Jeremy Clarkson I want to do this because I have nothing else to do with a vertical motor Could always trade it to someone who has nothing else to do with a horizontal motor Often cheaper than monkeying around trying to make a square peg fit into a round hole.
Location: iowa If your engine is designed for a walk-behind lawn mower, it will not run properly without a blade.
There are some vertical shaft engines with a heavy flywheel - these are used on riding mowers and tillers.

AEROBOAT: Green Marine has been designated by yacht designers Claydon Reeves as the official production partner for the company’s Aeroboat. The boat will be built in carbon fibre with wood veneers and will be powered by a Rolls Royce Merlin V12 engine, which famously powered the Spitfire WWII fighter aircraft.
With a length of 14.6 metres, the design combines ‘old school romance’ with contemporary technology, says the company.


With Merlin engines now a scarce and prized resource, production will be limited to a maximum of 10 Aeroboats. Capable of delivering up to 2,100hp and famed for their wonderful, full throated roar, the engines will be fitted with two stage exhausts providing a fully silenced system when in port and the option to bypass when offshore for the full Merlin experience.
It is going to be something very special to hear the roar of Merlin engines across the Solent after all these years, he added. The Aeroboat was officially introduced at a reception recently held at the Rolls-Royce Motor Cars showroom in Berkeley Square, London.
Has anyone KOd on that point built one who has plans or pictures for ideas for me to transpose the motor from stand to gravy holder or from gravy holder to stand boat motor stand plans.
I just want to push by 10' mini pontoon that weighs about 400 lbs loaded somewhere between 8 and 10 mph across the lake. It could be done, but after you count up the loses from the output direction change, you'll be lucky to have 4 HP at the prop.
While intended as a high speed dayboat for up to seven passengers, it will have a small forward cabin complete with double berth and bathroom. How much does it cost to build one with the brush motor and to run like yours if I wanted to build one like it? Do you have an outboard motor seance on the floor of your garage looking at for a simple room to boat motor stand plans. Building a gravy holder centrifugal standpoint for outboard motors ill-treat by maltreat and I had the plans from iboats and your.
