Quick n dirty put put scooter build thread.

well i got a snowmobile engine for christmas. i was gonna put it on this vehicle, but when i ratchet strapped it to the scooter and started it the scooter vibrated across the driveway. i had this lil 2 hp briggs that i did a "restoration" on (added a decal and jb welded the fuel tank). anyway the drive is self explanitory. im machining a pully to fit the rear axle, and then i just build a belt guard, wiring, foot pegs, heat shields and an exhaust system... now i just need a good name for it

YEP...And this is what happened on his last bike ride with rocket fuel in the tank...Must have had an "O" ring failure too...lol...DAMIEN


I was still in testing then. I have since went to a Viton oring instead of Nitrile.

Only a few of my employee's died in the test, its all good, I have plenty more.

I hope that is Ethanol Free gas your getting...Ethanol destroys these 2 stroke motors of ours...(If that is what you are using)...I dont know about what it does to the small 4 strokes...Eats through the aluminum and destroys the cheapie Chinese seals and carby's...DAMIEN
