Wow! Thanks for the ebay links. All of these lower units look pretty good. I really like the mercury one. I have some bad and good news. Looks like I'm going to have to use this briggs to build a generator instead of the outboard. Hurricane season is upon us, and the generator will be more useful to keep the freezer running (Last season we lost all of our perishables due to hurricne Lily). So, I've put my outboard plans on hold for now, but I still want to build this outboard. I want to try to make the motor interchangeable to be used as the outboard and generator. So, I'll keep you posted as my progress goes on both projects. I know this is a boat forum, so I'll post info about the outboard and post links to get to the generator info at my website. The good news is, I found a little 97 6 hp mariner for our little flat boat. So, now we'll be able to fish in better areas :) Thanks a whole bunch machnumber2. You've helped me a ton! :) Oh yeah, I'll be calling our local briggs shops tomorrow morning to find out the wot.
Well have to say that I am disapointed but this generator could be pretty neat. Post the details when u get a chance.
