I think he was just saying it’s a rear engine, not necessarily a snapper

Not sure what brand of rear engine machine that you found but snapper transmissions aren't too bad in my experience. This is a well used one that I shortened the frame on and rigged up for pushing cars around the garage. So far it's held up way better than expected. We've probably moved over 20 cars with it by now. It'll push them in 1st or 2nd gear.

The transmission is actually just a flat circle disk on the engine crankshaft and a rubber drive wheel rides against it. For lower gear, the rubber wheel rides near the center of the disk. For higher gear it moves towards the outside. The shifter has 5 or 6 notches but really you could put it anywhere in between. With this one being short, the front wheels usually are off the ground when pushing a car as it wedges itself up into the bumper. That puts a lot of pressure on the rear wheels for traction so it works well even without a locked diff. They're simply but pretty rugged.

More so "speeds" than gears on those Snapper RER's. They use a rubber friction drive, as mr.mod explained, essentially the same as a walk-behind snowblower drive system. No actually gears changing. There might be an enclosed gearbox going to the axle though, I can't remember.


By the way that car pusher is awesome mr.mod, haha.

so guys, if you read my reply i posted a few days ago on how bad my steering was, do you guys really think brass bushings and new heim/ball joints would fix it?
but if it wont, do you guys think i should completely REBUILD my steering? like what some of you guys run on your mowers, and id probably weld it, but how much work is it? and do you guys think i could do it? and what about front suspension?

i know that it wont be easy...AT ALL, and i know it will take quite awhile.
but i dont mind taking, lets say 2 weeks to complete as long as the outcome is worth it

so what do you guys think?

As I mentioned before, try the "Search" button and you'll find the info for steering upgrades. This topic has been covered many times.

i just got a 6.5 horse B&S push mower engine, i am wanting to make a go kart also simiaaler to yeethaws idea, but i wanna make it out of a ladder as the frame and i have a couple ideas what i want to do for steering, and i hopefully want to find a shift on the go riding mower tranny that i can use, and ill make the clutch
but I'm just wondering if there are any mods 9 engine mods ) that would go nicely with that 6.5 horse.
I'm thinking a racing carburetor? anybody know of a racing carb i can put on there?
and are there any internal mods you guys would recommend?

dont know if you saw it on my thread but youll definitely need a different and heavier flywheel or a giant pulley on the bottom or else the recoil wont work right

Yep, push mower engines don't have big heavy flywheels because they rely on the momentum of the cutting blade spinning to get them started and stay running. Without that momentum it can be hard to get them spinning enough to start.

Governor removal, shave the head, porting & polishing, really depends on how much work you want to do.

ik about the gov removal, but i don't know how well those will hold up, do you think i would need a different flywheel just to be safer?
 and I'm only 13 so i don't really know how to shave heads,
but how/what do you port and polish, and idk if you saw above but i wanted to maybe get a racing carb for it, do you know of any racing carbs i could slap on there?

Small pit bike carb probably. The questions you’re asking, there’s no definitive answers to. Would it hold up stock? Maybe. Nobody around here that I know of really messes with them so I have no idea. For this particular subject, google might be your friend. As for porting, just look up some videos on how to do it. Not super complicated, just takes some time and patience

I know you've been asking a lot of steering related questions lately, so I thought I'd do a video on the steering setups we have around my property...
