Re: Bruce Crandall Flyer Hydroplane

This looks like it might work. I would try to get the carb or throttle body and computer that came on the harley as one
package , would make it easier to get it running.

Re: FS14 Transom putting clamping boards outside

Late to the party but it's more like for every foot you move back the engine you raise it an inch.
I have my engine set back 6 1/2 " and raised the engine 1 inch and its border line with the right prop.
