Re: Maximum HP on a Surveyor?

Not sure exactly, but the prop pulley weighs more than the entire 40hp drive kit. By the book it should be 4 idlers and two belts, but I've managed with one before.

Re: Maximum HP on a Surveyor?

Weight and the elimination of slippage. The old style pulleys also rust in the saltwater.

Re: chain drive?

Compared to the Gates Poly Chain Carbon belt this is not worth considering, unless you are stuck in a Junk Yard Wars episode with no belts.

Re: Left/Right Front Compartment; Foot or Hand Brake?

I find everyone so far that has gone to a foot brake prefers it. I do use a design on the larger craft that give you both hand/foot, with a lock on feature.

Re: Garden Tractor Engine Weights

The ECV-980 is 141lbs with muffler. Not sure on the others, but the 26hp used to be 115lbs. The price difference between a 26.5 hp vs 40 is $694. https://hovercraft-kits.com/collections ... components

Re: Maximum HP on a Surveyor?

I can provide a v-belt option for the 40hp craft. The one extra expense is better idlers, the stock ones will split over time.

Re: Mariner Specs

It could be single, belt alignment tasks would be more difficult. Those engines have good rpm range, below 4200 is best.
