LAWNMOWER ENGINE FOR INBOARD POWER

I'm not much on long tails, considering them little more than a contrivance, that some have found a nitch market to utilize. I have some sources for small HP FNR transmissions, though they aren't cheap, unless you use the "go cart" crowd stuff. The "Comet" is a common one that can take up to about 25 HP, which satisfies most small engine needs. Under 3 tons usually need 5 - 10 HP to displacement speed and these have worked.

Longtails are the small engine of choice in southeast Asia as imported Western style outboards are multiple times the cost thus not affordable for most locals. These engines can be left in place with a rain cover and little worry of theft. I believe CLP's transmission can take up to about 25hp as well (inboards, too), but I don't think they are very expensive.
