Dump the straight drive shaft out the back of the boat. That's way too much pitch. I see remains of the origional shaft log sticking out the bottom of the boat. That's what you should be using along with the flex cable and a telfon tube. You can get a new shaft log at Menards in the sink department. They'rs called semi rigid 3/8" sink connectors tubs? They're right next to the flexable ones. You also going to need to make new rail mounts to properly mount the motor and you need a strut with bearings for either a 1/4" or 3/16" shaft, a prop shat, a shaft drive dog, a furrel to attach the flex cable (silver solder to solder the furrel to the flex cable) a prop shaft and a rudder, a speed fin and trim tabs are optional. The motor is not much HP around 1 hp. But if it has a clutch it's ok. I use Homelite engines. More hp at 2 hp stock I find them super cheap.
