i have not had it in the water since teal season ended in TX (sept 25), but i cranked it up last week on the second pull after having it sit in the garage for a few weeks untouched. everything seems to be running well. I wont really be able to comment on the durability until i get more engine time, but im pretty optimistic based on how these engines do on karts.

Thanks for your posts. I've followed and built the same motor. I hope to have it in the water this weekend. I'll post photos of it soon. This is the boat I'll be running it on. I'm painting it tomorrow. Question..When I tighten the motor down on the transom, the transom mount will ride up. Did you have this issue? if so, how'd you fix it?

Not the greatest photos, but you get the idea. Same as yours other than the camo.

And I'm doing my best to wire a kill switch. I had to mail the (bad) switch back to dealer today.

I bought one of these kits and put a stock harbor freight motor on it. I was getting 13.3 mph on my 12 ft v-hull with just myself in it.

The jury is still out on whether or not this combo will stay as a "back of the truck" rig. It's a bear to load by myself.

I wish I had a GPS to check my speed before I started into my engine rebuild....

Hello, I have a 9hp Briggs and Stratton(Vanguard) motor and was wondering if the Thai kit would fit the motor. Any drawbacks? Thanks.

tjs and others:
Word of caution: If your shaft is like mine, the shaft is held in place with a poly bushing and that bushing needs to be cooled by being emersed in water. The motor being run for long periods with the prop/shaft out of water has a tendency to burn the bushing. If you have bearings that have grease fittings, no problem.

Well the motor runs great. I hit 19 mph with two people in my 14ft semi v. The downside is I did burn a bushing the other day. I think a lilly pad stem got wrapped pretty tight and wasn't allowing water in. I ordered three bushings so I have some extras. One I am going to modify slightly to see if it will help with the cooling issue. I think some silicones spray on the shaft might help also. I wish it was sealed with grease fittings though.

First shot I usually miss, the second I normally hit in the same spot, the third more or less is like a "screw that coot!"
