Hi jpeggy,
I was just looking for the same thing. I was looking for a 2 view of an os 46. Then I remembered that the plans for the Ultra Sport 40 has top and bottom view of both the 46 SF and side views of the Surpass 48 and 70. If there is enough interest maybe a data base of scans from plans can be made?

It seems that pictures are no longer loadable from ones computer so I am not able at this time to help out with the scans I have just taken. I can email them to someone so they could post them if wanted. I will scan motors from my other drawings as I come across them.

Those can be hard to find. You'll often have to download them from the manufacturer. Your other alternative might be to measure, appoximately, the spacing between all the screw holes for mounting and then transposing those measurements to a sheet of paper through which you can drill into the firewall.

Thats how I handle my electric motor mounts now.

Seems to work pretty well.. most of the screw holes are evenly spaced in a square formation anyway right?

Most manufacturers will have a dimensional drawing in their manuals, such as the one below for an OS 46AX. That'll give you all the info you need to make your own template.Link below to the OS Engine website with the PDF manuals.

Nice find. I wish motor manufacturers like emax and the like were as accommodating.

Which specific engines are you looking for templates of?

Instead of templates and measurements, I like to use a transfer punch and just put it in the motor mount mounting hole then tap it with a hammer and it dimples the firewall. Easy enough to mount the engine to the motor mount in the same fashion. I've been doing it this way for many years. A nice transfer punch set can be bought from Harbor Freight for $11.
