      could be cool, imo waste of a good motor though personally. i'd put it in a smaller car, or maybe take the tranny too and mount all of it to a shifter kart

      Looks like a good idea. I just have a couple of questions. Is your boat inboard or I/O. How will the transmission hook up. Most boats have chevy or ford trans. How will you cool it. Raw water or raw to fresh exchange.What motor is in it now? What about motor mounts. I'm not knocking your idea at all. I seen all kinds of motors go into things they don't belong in. I just want to see how its going to be done. With having to run an ECU and all it looks like a ton of work. Good luck keep us posted.

      first things first in this.... i am getting all the junk floor out and everything all cleaned up then i can go back with new. the boat is an I/O 1973 Glastron V187 that i think HAD a Merc inline 4, when i got the boat it had no engine. but it has the merc outdrive so im guessing that the engine was as well.

      the hard part is going to be the fly will to outdrive. the engine that i got was an auto so that will help me with the fact that autos have a flex plate with the 3 bolt holes. i am going to make a plate with spacers from the Audi flywheel out about 1 1/2 in. maybe 2in. and have in the center a bolt pattern that is the same as a chevy or a ford crankshaft and use


      i think it will work out. it looks great in my head!!! but you know how that goes.

      as for the cooling system that shouldnt be that hard, the outdrive has a water pump in it to source water from the lake and i just have to hose it up! then take the pipes on the back of the head and weld up all the heater hose and expansion tank stuff so i can have one in and one out.

      engine mounts arent going to be that bad... just make a cage from 1"x1" alum or steel and weld up some brackets to bolt to the block. i will be using the factory mounts but the bank 1 side of the enigne the bracket will just have to be made. as for the bank 2 side that bracket will work fine, for now.... we'll see when i get i in there.

      No pictures today but I will have the metal for the engine subframe on Monday and my plate for the engine coupler that im having cut, so the outdrive will mate to the engine. Also 15 more yards of glass on the way

      Nice work! Give us a clue on what you actually did though. The photos alone can be misleading.

      as you see the stringers are all in and the transom is glued and glassed. i had a metal shop take the flywheel and the engine coupler and make me a part that will mate the two. this is what you see on the back of the engine in the pictures. it is just on there to get some measurements, and then i will have balanced so it wont shake all to ****! i got a 2"x2"x1/8" angle 20' long to cut and make the engine subframe from. thats what you see on the back of the truck! (thats longer that than the truck! hahaha i was hardcore redneck that day!) but i got it home and this weekend i hope to get some of it cut for the frame.

      the engine is about to big! on the alt side of it the oil pan will be about 1/4" to 1/2" from the stringer! but its GOING to WORK! hahahaha


      if you have more questions please ask! or advice for that matter as well...
