Interesting motor mount issue/question

That type of engine





is not well suited for boats - AIR cooled, too wide, not standard mounts - heavy -

you would be way further ahead to sell that engine and use a water cooled engine - very reasonable now in price and everything then just bolts together

like Zipp

or a Zenoah

Anything is possible, BUT the engine mounts would have to be custom made. Take a look at the service manuals for the 260 PUM and the G260RC. You will see that the basic engines are the same. But the "front half" of the engine is different, ie: pull start side. You will have to make a Front engine mount and get rid of the clutch in the rear. You will be able to use boat hardware currently available to drive your prop.

Motor has to be mounted in such a way to get lots of air across it

first thing would be to remove all dust screens etc (water don't need them) - get to basic motor and see how it fits in boat

Back mount shouldn't be too bad - front you will have to fab -- strip it down to basics and see what you have

Post pictures with bare motor in hull so we can see how it fits

anything can be done - just a matter of patience and ingenuity
