    Is that the engine information plate on the top of the cooling fan?

    Thats the problem, im in Northern Ireland, getting help when your over here sucks. What i have to say is other Hovercraft owners have been so helpful ive had a lot of people helping me out trying to discover the problem. Especially Darren from Hov-Pod Surry, a very helpfuiil guy and highly recommended. But any advice anyone could give would be greatly welcome.

    You have it easy, try getting anywhere when you are on the other side of the planet. Now that's hard.
    In the beginning there was the Cube; I know where is came from and it has the power to create Hover life. But with great power comes great Fun.

    Can't see much from the photo, i am not certain, but it looks like an early (ca. 1989-91) Yamaha Phazer engine 485cc fan cooled 2 stroke (about 50-56hp I think). In the snow-mobiles they had a separate oil injection system and oil tank and a belt driven electric starter mounted below.

    Hi guys thanks for all your help, now identified the engine as a Yamaha PE485, few problems getting the Hov-Pod up and running but she is buzzing now.

    Special thanks to the excellent wisdom of "Hoverchap" "Philip" and Darren at Hov-Pod Surrey.
