finally received the engine . started the conversion by machining a 1lb flywheel , next was to make some billet motor mounts , I used 4 rubber mounts to help deal with the vibration of this high compression power plant . The .24 carb was replaced with a .36 . . Motor mount blocks were epoxied into the hull and motor mount studs were epoxied into the blocks for mounting .. Next I removed the new cylinder and machined the 3 center fins just enough to make them round . I then machined a 2 piece sleeve that will clamp to the outside of the barrel to water cool the center portion of the cylinder . The cylinder will be fed by dual water inlets from the rudder . Still waiting for the driveshaft . but will move on to the muffler once the water jacket is done ..
