    Hello everyone,

    I am trying to find some info on modifying my K&B 7.5 outboard to Electric. I have a NEU motor and would like to find an adaptor plate so that I can mount it to the lower end of the K&B outboard. If anyone has any info or can direct me where to go I would greatly appreciate it.

    There re several options out there for adaptor plates. However get in contact with Kris Flynn. He mods the lower units so that the motor sits lower down reducing the center of gravity. It is a very neat modification and worth looking into. I for one have it done on all my electric lawless lower units.

    Regards

    Dave

    Thanks Dave,

    I have a Aeromarine Preditor 7.5/11.0 hull. I figure the 1515/2.5 on a 6s 30c discharge pack will be just fine. At least I hope it will. If anyone has a diff suggestion I am all ears.

    I have the Hyperformance 3.5 with adapter on a VS-1. It was high and when turning tight at speed it would roll over. I had a 3674 Leopard and changed to a 3650. Lost about 7 mph but really helped with rolling over. Seems to be very "height" sensitive. Don't know if it is possible but a shorter or no adapter would be nice on the Huperformance.
