Hi..

Why i need turn fins?is the turn fins connect to servo?or the rudder connect servo?

did the zenoah engine didnt include cooler?must i make it by myself?

shaft. how about shaft truts?what for is that?

The turn fins don't actually turn, they are fixed to tho boat to make it go staight. Ironic, Right? The Rudder is the one that is attached to the servo so the boat can turn. I don't know if your Zenoah model came with a cooler. Id have to have a parts # or some pics. And did you mean shaft struts? or did you mean truts like you posted(there is no such thing)? And alot of propellers can work like the grimracer or octura propellers. Size isn't a HUGE deal if you have a large boat, (which assuming you do, cuz you're using a 26cc Engine!!!) The flex Shaft is used to connect the motor to the propeller. Like a metal (except this flexes) pole connected to the motor and the prop. About the turn Fins, you see my Avatar? (under my name) The bottom right hand corner at the very end of the boat there is that light blue meatal thing. That is the right hand turn fin. And in the back in the middle is the rudder. here is a pic to show you also. O and the shiny chrome metal pieces are the trim tabs. they make the front of the boat go up or down while in motion.

Sorry newb but the turn fin helps to make the hull turn in a shorter distance.
OK, what else do you have? I'm not at all familiar with your radio system. A standard servo will work for the throttle but I'd advise a heavier-duty one with at least 100 oz. in. or more of torque for steering.
A flex cable is what runs from the engine and connects to the propeller. It runs inside a stuffing tube, a length of brass tubing with grease inside.
Trim tabs adjust the ride attitude of the hull. See those shiny things on the transon in the above posting? That's what those little devils are.
The raio box of course is a waterproof box that holds all of the boats radio gear. Pushrod seals go around the pushrods/linkages.
The Zen 260 PUM (the M stands for Marine) should already have a water jacket on it.
You're going to need a strut (the thing that the flex cable goes through) and rudder. If you know who made toe hull, see what they advise for running hardware.

It's really hard to describe everything that you need over the Internet and how to install it. I wish that I knew of a good site that tells a new boater how to build a kit with components from various manufacturers from start to finish but I don't know of one. Warehouse Hobbies, www.whobbies.com does have some video tutorials on their site for some things.

Hopefully you didn't buy it from ProBoat because if you did, you paid way too much.

Alex, get over it, really. Now you're just trying to double your post count. Keep it up and I'll give your dad permission to give you 5 upside the head (like he needs it).

Everyone is wrong from time to time... if everyone quit and left after being wrong once there wouldn't be anyone posting at all.
