    Alsport RTS engine options

    Been searching around and not finding much. I thought someone here might know how different the mounting plates were between the Kohler twins and the Tecumseh hh160ís ? My unfinished build off trike didnít go well since the Spirit/ Arctic Cat 500 the P.O. took the time to put on fit, but the belt wouldnít clear the shock support... so thatís gone.

    So now Iím leaning towards a big four stroke single like some of them came with but I donít have one right now to mock fit up. I know a modern OHV wonít fit on the engine plate I have now ( a predator 212 will barely fit between the seat and shock supports and itís only half on the motor plate when it does.)

    Any thoughts will help, anyone have one with the big Tecumseh single? I can get an old one easy enough but am wondering about mounting plate angles etc. I know they are tall and fairly narrow.
    Thanks, M/O

    Does your current engine plate look like part number 129?

    No, I’ll post some pics later on, thanks for the pic though. I see an old post from where a member put a 420cc on his rts so I pm’d him.
    My engine plate is shorter than that one.

    My engine was a Kohler 440 so it was a wider engine base it took re-drilling the motor base and adding a small plate to the original motor base

    Thanks guys, I think I’m going with a longer steel engine plate, 10” X 15” over the old one to hold a 305cc Briggs Vanguard that I have and since it’s a 1” crank I’ll get a Comet 40 series symmetrical driver to handle the load. Sound about right?

    Why not Mike! Does it fit behind the seat and what would would you do for a fuel tank?

    Yes, there's just enough room on these to put the 1" shafted "big" OHV engines on it, meaning a Honda GX390, Briggs 305, Predator 420 etc like that. The gas tank might have to be the stock one with a fuel pump since that jackshaft, shock towers and brake setup take up a lot of room back there. I guess that's good since it moves the engine forward of the rear wheels though.
