1.What engine did these originally come with Tecumseh 3.5?
2. Where can i get a internal drum brake for a 5" 5/8shaft
3.Anybody got an original picture of one with the chain guard and stuff.

The rear brake is probably a Bendix brake that is what my Continental has one it, There has been a few showing up on ebay lately. Brandt with Ruppparts my have something. the C350 would of had a Tecumseh 3.5 on it original. But you could use the Briggs it lools like it fits OK.

One other thing if you would like a better ride is get the shocks that are on ebay for a moped I think thats what the seller was selling them for, and put them on the rear. there a lot better than the stock ones. But hold onto the stock shock there worth a lot of money for someone that wants original stuff. Here's a picture of them on my Continental.

It looks like it may have had a small tentioner that bolts to the engine according to the parts diagram but im not sure that it needs it. It would be easy to add at any time if thats the case.
They smashed in the tank to fit the briggs on it. I do like briggs better than tec engines but i have a 5hp tec and a 3.5 but i was planning on using the 3.5 on another bike so ill probrobly use the 5 or look for another 3.5 . Im only 150lbs so the shocks should be fine i think.
Im working on cleaning up the wheels today :)

I would use the 5hp Tecumseh if it was mine. You won't regret it.

Did the pegs get moved from the original spot they look like there were they should be. The hs50 should not be any wider than the h35 engine.
