This thing looks like a neat idea so far. Small machines with an engine that takes up half the frame always looks cool.

Thanks..and yes it does it will look even better when its done.


camomanusa,When its all done and I get the manuel tranny in it I would like to get it up to around 40-45

I got some more progress made, I got the tranny mounted(temporary tranny) and also made 7" drop brackets and now the pullys are all lined up just need a belt and some belt tensioners.

Got some progress made today.

Started to mock up a 2 seater seat.

Mocked up the front end so its almost a rolling chassis.

And I desided to pull the v-twin of and save it for my racer project and I
went ahead and put this 5hp B&S on that I got from a push mower.. runs great.

Some of you guys might think a 5hp motor is to small but its all about gearing if its
geared right it will do just fine...I wanted this motor instead of the v-twin because for one its pull start,
it does better on gas, its easer to start, and its a flathead. And also I wont have any wiring to deal with sence its
pull start..so there will be no battery dyeing out on the trail, no wiring I will have to worry about getting wet and shorting
out..so overall this motor will be better for my tractor/go kart.

Yeah same here..Im still working one figuring that out..i just need to find a right axle gear box or a peerless style gear box.
But for now im using my k46 hydro until I can get the actual drivetrain all figured out.

Looks great Truckin, and I bet 5hp is more than enough with the right gearing.
