Default !!!!!!!HELP 30cc Robie engine!!!!!!!

Hi there all
I have a 30cc robbie strimmer (weedwaker) engine off of my strimmer how would i go about connecting it 2 a prop shaft also what size hull dose a 30cc engine normaly go in because i have a couple of 32" hulls but it looks 2 big 2 go in there . could i get hold of a 2nd hand sea queen (just abit bigger than a darter king) rip all the electric motors out and put my robbie engine in that as its 49" long and massivley wide or can anyone think where i can get a hull for a gas engine for £100 ($200) or less
Many thanks
Jonjoe

You will need to find a hull around 43 or more inches in length and the ryobi with twin props will be pretty anemic at best, another thing the ryobi's coil used to have a rev limiter set at 9500 rpm but could be replaced by a standard Homelite coil.
