    [QUOTE=rock;3130728]You are very welcome Sean. As a retired cabinet maker Rock[/QUOTE

    I started out as a cabinet maker before teaching.
    I used to wish I stuck with the cabinet making until i switched to high school.

I believe everything you need is there but there might be minor wiring issues to deal with and I wouldn't trust any of the plumbing. As you know there is a lot of help on here for both construction and mechanical. It's a good day when you can clear out some space in the shop and help a bunch of kids at the same time.

    Rock I understand that. My local library has the manuals to a lot of these motors. I can also troubleshoot and diagnose problems as they arise... as long as it has compression I am good.

    Looks like it will fit just fine. I have a 20" mid with a bad lower on it, a 15" mid with lower, a powerhead, a prop, and an unattractive cowling. Looks to be enough there to get you going. PM an address and I will get this mess boxed up and off to Fastenal. You are welcome to both mids and I would suggest taking both of them till you know for sure which way you need to go. It's going to cost a bit more to box and ship but in my opinion would be well worth the few bucks extra the shipping may cost. Beside the cost of shipping you will be responsible for sending me a pic of finished project surrounded by the kids that built it. Even better than that would be a picture of the grin on the face of the first kid to drive it.
