    Sprocket swap question

    Will do. I'm thinking that olive green will match the frame well enough. And rust oleum makes the olive green, black engine enamel for the TC backplate (I may get two, so I have enough to repaint the H30 on my edger), and an adhesion promoter primer. I'll check if it's in stock the next time I'm...

    Sprocket swap question

    Thanks, so any old spray paint should work for the cover, correct? And I was thinking of getting some black engine enamel for the backplate. It'll give me some practice using enamel before I paint the 351w (block heads and timing cover), which is staying blue. And your bike looks great.

    Sprocket swap question

    And is there a difference between spray painting metal and plastic? The blue TC cover kind of sticks out on a camo bike with black hardware.

    Sprocket swap question

    Ok, I was thinking I' need a new chain but I wasn't sure. I might do a test fit just to see if it'll work until I get a new one. The way i'm going through chain I should have bought the 100 foot roll.

    Sprocket swap question

    I have a 2014 baja warrior that I bought 4 1/2 years ago, new, and I've been making it more off road friendly. So far I've rebuilt the engine (The rings were installed in the wrong order), and replaced the 2:1 jackshaft and centrifugal clutch with a 30 series. I recently ordered a 72 tooth...

    Briggs 8hp advice

    I was thinking about getting a 301, and adding a gx270 flywheel, alternator and starter, for electric start and headlights. But the briggs is more period correct. And I might just trade him a manco 415-10 frame (I picked up with two others and a new predator for $300) for it, as opposed to $235...

    Ebay two stroke power?

    I might see about getting one of those engines for a bicycle. But I'd Like to get mine running first. It appears to be a pretty solid base, though the crank bearings are questionable. It needs a few parts, but it was free along with a pocket bike.

    Ebay two stroke power?

    I found the same engine as mine on ebay, it also says 25:1, so i'll keep this thing away from my dad (he runs pre mixed 50:1 in everything). And I figured the power would be pretty low. But I think it'll move that scooter with 9.7:1 gearing on 10" tires. The scooter couldn't have weigh more than...

    Ebay two stroke power?

    Does anyone know how much power the little $60 50cc two strokes from ebay and amazon have? My uncle gave me a little, I guess you could call it a pocket bike (it would fit in my pocket) with one of these engines on it. I was thinking o putting it on a bicycle, until I realized that it had t8f...

    Project top speeds

    I was thinking we needed something like this here. This is pretty much just a thread for you to post how fast your projects go (with a bit of info). My current projects are a 2014 Baja Warrior, a Carter Bros. 2575, and a Ken Bar Streaker DD9. The Warrior has been hot rodded more than a little...

    Briggs 8hp advice

    I honed the Tecumsehs bore a bit to give it a nice crosshatch, but I wanted to keep the original piston. The engine ran fine when I got it, however it never put out enough power for this thing. And it started burning oil and smoking a bit. When it's done it'll be going on my Manco 415-10. If you...

    Briggs 8hp advice

    Thanks for the replies. Sorry, I should have been more specific about what it'll be going in. I have a Ken Bar Streaker DD9 go kart (a big and very heavy go kart), that's putting a slight strain on the predator 212 that's on it (even with a 30 series 7" driven and 6.6:1 gearing). It is a nice...

    Briggs 8hp advice

    So, since the 8hp would be wider, could I make a spacer that sits between the engine and the frame out of 5x2 rectangular tubing that has the right slots on top for the engine and on the bottom for the frame? Or would that be a bad idea? But I'll get the mounting dimensions for the frame. I do...

    Briggs 8hp advice

    My uncle has a briggs 8 horse that he might sell to me, but I have a few questions. Question one, is there anything I should know about these engines throttle hookups beforehand (are there remote operation throttle plates available if one isn't on the engine)? Question 2 do these have a 3/4"...

    Post your cars!

    I'm thinking big engine hotrod pickup. My dad had an old ford f100 or 150. The po was a racecar builder and swapped a built 428 in it with a racing trans and axle. It'd smoke a vette with a lawn trailer on the back.
