I have been working on this for some time but have not said anything about it. 40ci opposed twin, peerless 700 5 speed with 18" atv tires from the murray, along with the rear rack.

thanks guys, the original 8 hp caught fire and burned the hood so I decided to do this. it needs a bumper for the front. I love the exhaust, but my buddies think that it is too loud. it sounds like a very loud harley davidson.

Yep, a very loud harley davidson that has something wrong in the carb.. LOL... i think you need to redo your exhaust as tight to the frame as possible, bennens hit his front tire, but we fixed that.

I just got tubing to redo it today, and I scored a $20 hf winch from the store because I had gift cards and a coupon. so it is getting a strong bumper tomorrow and new exhaust. Z is sounds like a bad carb because when you heard it it had starting problems and I thought it was the carb so I was playing with the mixture. I will put the exhaust on my 6211 dozer.

The new and improved Montgomery Wards Dependable Power Plus 8 4 Speed. It is no longer 8, but 18 horse power. If I open the throttle in 5th (I added 5th gear) I do a wheel stand. Luckily I have the rear rack which keeps me from falling over, although it feels like you are straight up in the air when it goes. Anyways, I have a 2 into 1 exhaust, and I got it to idle without having to open the throttle at all. Winch is attached and ready. Now I am waiting for Zsmachines and Brennen to get here so we can go on a ride. We shouldn't have a problem getting stuck since the mud is frozen solid so it is like concrete.

Do you have all the tin work removed from the engine except the shroud? I was thinking of removing most of it on an opposed twin I am going to build. I planned on extending the tin down on the lower of the two cylinders though since I saw a picture of one and there was a decent gap. I guess you haven't had any overheating issues?

I have not had problems, but I have the tins if I need them. Rode it today, till the chain broke, then the belt broke. Ran it for some time though, and it works great! It has tons of power, so awesome! I will rebuild the tranny but I need the countershaft and I can't find one.(splines for reverse sprocket are stripped, and I want the two outputs so I can put on breaks.) I am thinking of getting a straight axle and getting a break disk on that.

i would put the brakes on your axle so that you still have brakes even if your chain breaks.

I finally got a chain and belt for it, and it probably goes 20 mph. I will try to get a vid of it today.

Yeah I have not seen many of these around. sears had a 8hp craftsman with the same setup. Anyways, I made a stronger tie rod that is 2x as thick as the original, since the old one bent in my hand. this is a shortened mtd rod with adjustable ends.

Ya know... I think that a quad it dirtbike motor would be cool in this... You could hear it down to where 1st gear would be at like 2 mph and high would be like 45...
