That second shot puts the displacement increase into perspective. What are you planning, if anything, for a cowl for this beast?


i had the same thought when i seen that pic..........holy crap.........
is the stroke travel comparable.....or is it longer ....thats one power house :arrr:

ray i seen a u-tube video awhile back on a guy streamlineing that "v", "pyramid" reed valve configuration........i will see if i can find it again........if its even the same........

lookin great man......thanks for sharing........ :hello:

The displacement jumps from 31.8 to 45 CID, even better we go from cross flow induction with a tortured path through reed valves to a loop charged induction with a carb for each cylinder and "V" or semi-pyramid reed valve setup.
I am going to use the original cowls from the 50 OMC, I've had to "adjust" them a little and once I get some paint on them you can tell me if it all looks reasonable :biggrin:

The true gearheads are the only ones that are going to keep looking at this thread, slow motion progress, one step forward...., most here know the drill B)

All previous photos of the transplanted powerhead have been with it fully dressed out with carbs, air box, electrics, and wiring. Here is a better look at the way the mass of this powerhead fits the smaller midsection.


and a better look at the adapter plate.

Getting the drive shaft functional let me move on to building the gear shift linkage, I'm using the original shift linkage on the 50 to link up to the original linkage on the 35's lower unit.

Got the cooling system pretty much figured out. the Main discharge from the head dumps into the original location on the 35 which dumps it to where exhaust pressure blows some of it out discharge holes along with the exhaust and blows part of it into the midsection to help cool the exhaust.

There's more to the cooling system. I'll take more photos later.
Removing the head to tap the water lines led to this.

So there's a little refreshing going on top and bottom. I'm using a 83 model lower unit so that will get tuned up, along with a few weld repairs before it all goes together.

Nice work Ray. As long as you don't put a blower on that motor or don't do any reverse -drop to drive burnouts I think it'll be fine. :dry: :woohoo:

Well, I see it's been 7 weeks since I reported any progress,, mostly because there has been little. I did work out one version of the drive shaft modifications needed.
I picked up a long shaft and cut a section out, drilled the splined end section, turned a step onto the other section to use as a dowel, pressed them together and had it tig welded. Any side bets as to if it will stand up to the load is strictly between you guys.

Mostly helping people who helped me in the past, and making a few bucks in the process.
