Lawn Boy

  1. Been thinking about a Lawn-boy engine unit for friction drive,. They are easy starting, dependable, and light weight. Should be able to arrange a device to swivel the driver into the wheel and the backup idler on the other side by pivoting the unit on a vertical axis. A ball bearing timing belt tensioner from a car would be a good backup and would last forever. Can't beat a trampoline or Wonder-Horse spring.

    Has been done before. Just search this forum and the other forum for project ideas. Kickback maybe a problem if you don't have a flywheel or a blade on the engine. A compression release valve may help.

    Good Luck,

    I have a lawn-boy 2 cycle engine on one of my MB builds and works SUPER! Great little engine!
