PostSubject: Mower update   Sat Jul 22, 2017 10:06 pm

SO i've benn slowly working on my machine when i'm not distracted my mom's freaking VW Cabrio. So ive finaly goten a Spicer 6 speed to swap out my Peerless.  I did the Fearless Carb mod. (note a older post i had kinda the same idea little over a year ago. I acquired brand new un-opened tire chains at good will by the pound (score).








first thing, the new carb, i dont got a return line so if it's not runing it pisses gas like a SR-71.
next the vinal tube is the pcv drain that i just felt like not hooking up to the intake. (cus screw the epa)



here you can see the gas pedal
the exsaust curently is just the old intake that is going to be the header. the rusty pease is a header off a brigs oposed that kinda fits.


i had to cut a pace of the rear chassy plate to make the spicer fit.
under neath i got a new dual pully set up that is tened with a 1/4 inch turn buckle. (2 2.5" pulleys if i rember right)
tire chains (im too cheap for now to buy tiers)

Looks good! You should cover that hole in the side of the blower shroud or you may have problems with overheating. I've just taped em off with some duct tape before. What pulley swap you running?

Looking good, where'd you get that nifty carb? The aluminum exhaust/intake header is neat. I think someone had aluminum exhaust manifolds for drag cars or something in the 60's to save weight. I read about it but I don't remember all the details. Keep us updated!

The aluminum exhaust manifolds didn't catch on because they tended to melt in race application... spewing molten metal at spectators is strictly prohibited at nhra events Cool

in our case, relatively low rpm and low heat output makes it feasible, though AL does tend to crack when it gets hot

Awe, who doesn't like molten aluminum slung at them?

So my pulley's are 3" in the front and 3" in the rear. Just got the car off E-Bay, nearly bolts up with little effort. Just to throw this out there, note the intake is plastic. Yes it is the intake so it dose not see the heat of the exhaust but it is bolted right to the head.

A lot of guys do like the 1:1 pulley ratio. With both yours being 3", you may have some belt slip. I hear a lot of two 5's or 6's. Something to keep in mind.
