chestdeep, Could you email me the list to email@example.com Also, what machining did you do? add to the list if I am missing something CNC machine - mounting system Internal threading - upper and lower bearing housing External threading - SS shaft for the prop and nuts. maybe something for the grip, throttle and killswitch I work at a industrial fab shop so I would be able to get all the gussets cut on the plasma table, or do that myself. That voltswagon motor looks cool, but I am guessing it weighs around 300+ pounds? I currently have a 24 horse honda, but I am looking to go 27-30's. All I have found are Vanguards and Kohlers. I'd like to go with honda, but if not, which one is more peferred?
