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

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?

Default Mud Motor

Hey did you ever finish your mud motor. I am working on one built out of a 50cc quad. Would like to see some pics of yours.

Default Why build a small mud motor - couple of reasons

New guy here. The question asked was as to buidling a small 33 cc mud motor. I've built 3 and all work great for the hunting I do. First one was a 33 cc unit. I wouldn't recommend doing this as the motor was just a little bit on the small size. Took some digging to find a prop that would work with this motor. 2 one was built with a 52 cc motor. This one goes through anything. Third one was built using a honda 4 stroke and gear reduction. This is the best yet.

Reason to do this is weight. Every one of my motors weighs less than 20 lbs. Where I hunt, and how I hunt weight is everything. Having to haul a 65 lb+ motor would be a killer for me physically.

As far as performance. All these motors will push me (200 lbs) boat (65 lbs) and gear (40 lbs?) 6 + mph upstream. Hull speed on the boat I have is around 6 mph and to get moer speed would take significantly more hp and the associated weight.

There are plans on the net on how to build a mud motor using a small weed eater motor. Let me know if youa re interested.

Mark

we waited to long on starting and just ended up buying a boat with one. but now the boats to big and heavy for where we wated to use it so now we're talking bout starting the project. we got everything but a prop. Tim has my plans cuz he's ganna make one he said. we'll get one build one day wehn get a chance.

here is my rant.
some guys just cant help but to get on here and become buttheads. FINE SOMTHING BETTER TO DO THAN GET ON HUNTING FOURMS AND NOT TALK ABOUT HUNTING!
