jabe,
I would rather call it a transplant B)

As the good Dr. Frankenstein could tell you, a good donor can be found readily enough :hand:

The hard part is getting all that pesky connective tissue joined up and working.
I can give you the gory blow by blow if anyone is interested, here's the very first step;

That can't be done!


It shouldn’t be so hard, all I have to do is make an adaptor plate that will bolt to the power head then bolt to the midsection. The adaptor plate will need to route the exhaust through to a fabricated exhaust tube, route the cold water into the new power head, route the hot water back down to cool the exhaust tube and out the midsection, I’ll need to make a new water feed tube from the impeller to the adaptor plate and make a drive shaft and a shift linkage, then all that’s left is to come up with some way to mount a cowl on it all.

OK I give up.
What are you doing to them and what's it going on?


Well the original one with one carb is a 32CID 35HP OMC, the other one with two carbs is a 45 CID 50HP OMC.
The 50 is going on the 35 chassis. What it all goes on is to be determined, it will be a Feather Craft, that's certain. :biggrin:

Frankenstein motors are the best!


No doubt this one is going to fly.

I would guess what it is but he told me on the phone the other day.
