You don't have to turn the motor on the side, a right angle gear box would handle that (and one happens to exist on every boat motor sold). You can use a radiator, the fresh water supply is just easier if you happen to keep it on a boat.

The real issue is torque. Lots of HP with rather little torque. But as you know, gear ratios can correct that.

You may start a trend! 20 hp vanny? Heck no, I have a 70hp Johnson!

Also, someone else here also said it would be a money pit and I would tend to think they may be onto something.

A powerful enough outboard is going to cost you some coin.

This isn't something you are likely to be able to do with a cheap 9.9hp.

Sure, it can be done. Just might be cheaper/easier to use the Honda clone.

Unless you already have a 70hp Johnson laying around...

If you do it, post a build thread. New idea are always fun to see.

I think you may be onto something. An amphibious golf cart. Drive it out onto the ponds to fetch your lost golf balls. You will probably have to use a lot of foam on the cart to keep it floating Bet you could get top dollar for that project.

The major stumbling block is the lower portion of the engine is part of the crank case and fabbing mounts .

In all honesty,The size of the motor,the fact that its' a vertical-shaft,which will require an expensive 90-degree drive-box,and the cooling-system involved,all make it a very large and expensive combination.It won't just drop into a cart-chassis.You have about 24",give or take,from the seat-wall to the axle.Thats not alot of room.An ATV,Bike,Sled,Clone Or V-Twin will net you the same results alot easier.If you want a big,nasty 2-stroke,find a sled to part-out.Or even Water-Craft motors.Hope this helps.

I want to see this attempted! Around here you can find running outboards of all sizes cheap, wouldn't have a title but so what. There would be several obstacles but if you have the time and money..that would be the s***!

What does a "Title" matter? I always run into this when guys build anything.Titles are for Vehichles,unless its' an old Harley,for some reason the title goes with the engine.Besides,There aren't Titles for Carts anyway,so its' still not necessary.
