re: air cooled diesels
- Hello everyone. i don't know if this will help because i've never built
one, but in the back of one of my boatbuilder magazines there is an ad
CHEAP POWER TODAY: Run your boat with an economical air-cooled B+S
type engine. Complete DIY manual includes for'd,neutral,and reverse
gearing from cheap,easily obtained parts. Only 10.95(US$) CAPT. WOODIE
OWEN P.O.Box 32172-B Charleston,SC 29417Like I said , I've no idea
about it other than" hell yeah ". I'm wondering though, these engines
are rated @ 10hp @3600 rpm, ok, but what kind of torque are we talking
about from a 100pound engine? It requires some grunt to move a 2-3 ton
vessel besides just HP.
I'd like to hear from some tinker out there who has built something
like woodie's gizmo. if it works i'll get to work and have some
available within several weeks.
fair seas and favorable winds to all. Bill
