Re: homemade outboard

I am sure if you use the bearing bolts to secure the ABS in the prescribed manor that it will hold it. I didnt make a special design note but I hope you are intending using many nuts on each beering bolt, 1 or 2 to tighten the bearing to the plate, then other nuts further up the shaft to hold the abs Id probably use 2 to lock them together at the right hight. Might be a bit tricky working in that tight area..

Acared of the prop huh? I wouldnt worry too much about it.Although ita an important thing, It is not a difficult one.. If the shaft is actualy thick enough to bore and tape out to the prop hole size that might be another way to go, However the exsisting method I recomendid I still see as best.

-ever forward
