Lugged this beast into the garage before it rains. It's much bigger than I thought. Laughing Notice the train horn on the seat. It's mostly done. Just have to make a permanent mount and a paint job.

I might charge up a tank, throw it in the back, and mount the horns. Shucks, the guy who made the plans put his on his golf cart. I might start making videos soon.

Do you have the rough dimensions on it? And what size is the axle?

I'll have to go measure it later, but the shaft is 1" and comes down about 5".

Well, several days ago, I worked on the tractor, removing the old engine and putting the twin on. I cleaned all the caked oily grease off the frame and engine. I will be doing the same to the old engine later. Both were a mess. Believe me, I've worked with caked grease and it's no fun. I had to clean a whole transmission covered with this stuff. No As of now, it's sitting on the tractor. I bought a new oil and fuel filter for it and put new oil in it. Now I just need to drill the holes for it and fire it up for a test run. Very Happy Of course, this big engine produced a couple problems(as always Rolling Eyes ). One, the fuel tank won't fit. Almost fits, but not quite. The mounting holes don't line up. Other than that, it's mostly a good fit. Stay tuned as I'll be doing a startup video.

Sweet nice work,

And can I ask what is the mounting dimension on the twin?

I ran it yesterday(video to come soon) and that sucker fired right up and boy it sounded good. I said it once and I'll say it again, I love apposed twins. Very Happy It might need some tweaking I think as it sounds more like a V8 than an apposed twin. As a little side note, the mounting holes acctually were there. I never noticed them. Laughing Very Happy

I guess the headers for now. Very Happy A little loud though. I'll probably sooner than later run true duals out the back.

Wish I could do that on my truck as it's a Naturally aspirated diesel V8. I could run true duals on it too. Very Happy
