    Some years ago I faced the same issue and came to the conclusion that unless I got lucky and scored some second hand parts, It made economic sense to sell my short shaft and buy a long shaft motor. Technically it is not difficult to do if you can source the parts at reasonable prices. Tracking them down may prove problematic.
    There is nothing quite as permanent as a good temporary repair.

    thanks for the reply i think i will install a bracket on my transom with a spacer that is at the correct height so that i dont need to cut the transom it seems like a good cheap way to do it.
