    Default Jet boat > I/O install

    I need some help with understanding the difference between a jet boat motor and a Motor in a I/O. Reason is I am thinking of buying a engine that was previously in a jet boat but my application is a I/O. What would I need to change to make this work for me in regard to the internals of the motor.

    Totally depends on how the jet boat motor was built IMHO, camshaft choice would be the biggest difference as far as I am concerned. Otherwise should be OK.

    A lot of jet boat motors run pretty cold as far as water temps, so there may be some figuring to do there...

    The oil pan should work, you may find yourself looking for a flywheel, as a lot of jets run a flexplate only. I think all torque couplers need the thickness of the flywheel without an adapter of some sort...
