    Default Who makes short / long tail kits without the motor

    What company makes the kits that allows you to build your own longtail / mudd buddy type motor?
    I thought there was a mfg that sends the everything but the engine, where I might be able to supplement with Paul H.'s engine on a layout boat.
    Thanks,

    Depending on the size of the motor there are only a few options.

    Stump Jumper (bill's engineering) sells their frame kit for small motors. It is designed for a 7hp Robin motor, but will fit several other motors in the specification. The connection to the drive shaft is most important since you can drill mount holes in the end plate if the ones there don't line up.

    Beaver tail might still make a frame kit for the smaller ones. I never really looked into them after getting serious on the stump jumper.

    Boghog is rumored to be cosing their doors. IIRC their frame kits were for bigger motors.
