Default home made mud motor plans!!!!!

guys/gals. i found on ebay a better alternative than paying $2000 for a motor. if your a serious duck hunter, but like me feeling the crunch of the faulty economy, this is your answer to owning a mud motor. you buy the plans for 29.99 and build a motor for around 700. thats a motor and prop and all the materals. i just bought the plans and im about to start my own. they list out all the past #'s from www.Mcmastercarr.com and they have videos of their own motors. give em a try.

www.madmudmotors.etsy.com

im ganna build mine slowly but if you try it and finish before i do, let me know how well it works. good luck guys

most lawnmowers have a vertical shaft (and wont run on their side) easiest to do with a horizontal shaft motor

Is that a new version of a Shakespeare play? No "L" in Hammett.

Anybody ever follow through with these plans? I'd be curious to know how they turn out and hold up. Shoot, for $700, i'll build one!

Sence it is gonna be on the water and not in a high dust enviroment why not goto surplus-center and get a snowblower motor the don't have an air filter on them and they are cheap

Besides a briggs don't need no stinking filter it runs like crap from day one but runs like crap from now on

Powermax motors are identical to hondas. I bought a brand new 16 horse for 300 last year for my fan boat.

I don't know what the setup was but I saw 2 young men at the lake this past weekend. They both had LT motors, one store bought and one home made and looked to be the same size/hp. The home made motor was on a 12' light weight jonboat and had a very difficult time getting on plain and only ran WOT about 6-8 mph while the other boat/motor ran as expected. The guy also had to keep cleaning/dumping the prop while going through a patch of pads that were barely touching on the sides.

I'm guessing he had something setup wrong due to the preformance I was seeing??

That motor must be the plans they offer from duckhuntingchat.com, I thumbed through them and was not that impressed. It seemed like it would work but I don't get why you'd b uild a 33cc mud motor when for a couple hundred more bucks you could build something bigger, better, and faster. Who knows though maybe the concept could work with say a 260cc + engine?
