    Default BBC rail kit template

    I want to make my own rail kit (motor mounts ) if anyone has a template could you trace it out on paper and mail it to me? I only need front and rear motor plate as I can do the rest. I would be willing to send who ever 1 of my shops Tshirts, just tell me what size. ( Badd Boyz Customs ).

    thanks! jeff c/o

    Using some one elses kit is not necesairly the best idea because the width between the stringers usually varies from boat to boat. What you could do is look at some of the pictures in the jet boat pics thread or the websites of the companies that make them, find a design that you like and go from there. Good luck.

    Definitely take the time to make your own design. If I were you I would determine the width first(make sure you take into consideration the pump centerline in relation to the stringers(may not be centered...). Leave plenty of material to remove when it comes time to determine the height. A lot easier to remove than take it away. If you have a bare block to use that will help considerably.

    I think what he mainly wants is a template of the motor/engine pattern so he can cut all the holes and everything lines up and clears things like the timing cover, pan, water inlets, starter, etc. Cutting the width and height compared to that part is cake.

    I'm interested too, for a guy with a drill press and a jig saw the hardest part of this is going to be figuring out exactly where to drill/cut holes so that the block lines up perfect.

    I thought i remember seeing a engineering looking drawling on the forums a while back, had all types of measurments on it.

    A tool that will help enormously is a transfer punch set, it helps locate the holes and where to drill exactly. Measuring is very tedious. I have cut my own rail kits with a drill press and a jig saw and a transfer punch kit.

    I have the engineering drawing, so post or e mail me your e mail address and I will send it to you.
    Transfer punches are great, they have all different kinds. My son (Brendellajet) and I found that if you get the ones that screw into the block you can set the plate on them, tap the plate and presto, you have punch marks.
    Like Brian said take care when cutting because it's easier to take material off then to put it on.
