Thanks, you are probably correct on it being a 1960's era. It was my neighbor's when I was a kid. My sister got for him and I took it once they lost the bolt holding the reel on. Fixed it up and it still works but the engine is showing its age. I am re powering it with a 6.5hp Predator engine. I've seen some videos where they talk about changing/drilling out the jets. does anyone know where to look for the how to info on this ? thanks.
Just got the time to mount the Predator to the chassis. The old clutch broke while trying to remove it. I am going to use a go kart clutch. Does anyone have an opinion on using a clutch with holes in the face for cooling or should I buy a solid face one like the original? Just worried about the clutch freezing up.Also to consider is that the open faced ones have set screws plus a keyway while the solid faced ones use a keyway and a retaining bolt on the end of the shaft. I am worried about the clutch floating out of alignment with the sprocket and throwing the chain. Any help would be appreciated. After this I am going to try a heater box conversion from one of the members.
