    Why a prop hub ? from the blurry pictures the shaft looks pretty beefy ?

    RE: help on identifing my engine.

    you think i can just make one that will work fine, just didnt want any problems with it because its a standard thread ,and the engine spins counter clock wise i was afrade of it spinning off when starting it with drill, guess could double nut it and grove some washers myself, i found a hub by the way its $25. is it worth the trouble of fussing with it? also it looks beefey because it has a sleave over the shaft in the pic.

    RE: help on identifing my engine.

    you could use a tight fitting aluminum spacer with a big enough outside diameter to meet the prop, that's about all the hub is for one of those...

    On the starter, if you have part of a weedeater sitting around, making something like this might be good for ya:


    I need to get that boat going again, that 4 stroke engine sounded cool... If you put a little blue loctite on the threads before putting the nut on you should be able to start it with a drill and socket though.

    I dont know if you have one but I have modded a pull start pulley to sit over the spacer on the crank shaft behind the prop, then you can just use a rope with a handle on it wrapped around to pull start the motor.
    This is on a 'Mac' longshaft motor but I did the same on my 30cc Homelite.
