Has anyone used one of the Briggs and Stratton ETEK motors?

No but I'm going to try to use a Tecumseh H35 on my trike.

Right now I have the engine and a TAV2 Torque Averter to go on it.

I'm sure a similar combination could be had the the Intek series, but keep it under 5 hp unless you have a death wish of some sort :devilish: .

These combinations will weigh nearly 40 lbs and will not fit in the frame like a "Happy time" or similar brand 2 cycle will.

Oh, I guess I should have said that the ETEK is an electric motor.

I have lots of gas motors.
I thought I could ride an electric bike to work and charge it there, on their dime.
That way I would not have to buy $3.00 a gallon gas.

WOW... that is too awesome.

I'm gonna have to consider building an e-bike as fast as that, and just give up on it having any range whatsoever. Then hopefully when bigger, better batteries come out... I'll just hook it up and ride 30 miles in a day at lightning fast speed.
