...........what if you CUT away(dremmel) just th' gearbox part of a happy time(?) china engine......... and weld th' smaller of the two gears in th' trans housing to a jack shaft
very interesting. seems do-able. using the happytime block....less head, jug, piston & connecting rod.
Ideally, the crankshaft would be replaced with a plain shaft, but unless you are a machinest...or have one as a close friend...this would be expen$ive.
Having a manual clutch would open up all kinds of possibilities for donor engines
Mounting to the bike would be simple....and the whole unit is quite compact.
does anyone see a down-side or any problems here? I'm all ears!!!
or should I put this to sleep with the fishes
Zomby, excellent thread & info...BTW
