  1. SOHC's Briggs & stratton creation.

    Engine seems to run pretty well, Had a bit of trobble with the pulstart clutch but it just needed cleaning and some oil, I made an exhaust that I burnt the side of my hand on badly, I also made the missing sheet metal part that directs the air around the front fins, still need to find another fuel cap as the one I have has a few rust holes in it,
  2. SOHC's Briggs & stratton creation.

    Frame is half painted, got started on the shitty 5 HP engine, I got it sparking, it had no points gap and they were dirty, carb had bad corrosion from condensation in the tank and one of the jet tubes is lose, I have another carb but its for the small fuel tank as some Briggs & stratton engines the carb bolts to the top of the fuel tank
  3. SOHC's Briggs & stratton creation.

    I am going to start painting the frame tonight I think, rear brakes are finished, I need to get a 1" twist grip and brake lever, I use to have shit loads of that stuff but thought I would never use it, fuck.

    Thats relay nice. When my folks go away, I might have some drag racing on my driveway one day, it was a topdressing plane runway in the 40s
  5. SOHC's Briggs & stratton creation.

    I was looking at plans to couple to engines together, I can use two centrifuge clutches with an idler sprocket to hold the chain in place. Its going to be trickery to get air in that rear tire, there is a sprocket on one side and a disk brake on the other.

    I wanted to use an old engine, it would work out easier and cheaper to use a chinese motor tho, Not relay, 2 of them are 3 HP of different vintages and the 5 hp motors need ignition parts. I will fix something.
  7. SOHC's Briggs & stratton creation.

    The frame is basically finished, wheels mounted, forks mounted, I managed to smash this out in a few afternoons. A wile back I got X2 Tecumseh H25 engines from here, I am thinking of running them both, but not sure how to link them with the clutches and run both carbs and governs all at once.
  8. Thats really cool
  9. SOHC's Briggs & stratton creation.

    I have x2 3 hp engine and x2 5hp engines, they are all fucked in some way or another so if anyone has one I will take it off your hands
  10. SOHC's Briggs & stratton creation.

    Frame is nearly finished, I just need to make foot rests and fit some bushes to the head stock, I have made the forks and handle bars but havent got any photos
  11. SOHC's Briggs & stratton creation.

    I got a pair of wheels from Storm parts in henderson, they are split rims and there was a front and a rear, I have used both LH sides to make the rear wheel and both RH sides to make the front so I can run a brake on the rear and a sprocket, I also made it so the sprocket bolts to the rim center aswell as I think 3x4mm bolts into thin alloy wont cut it
  12. I wanted a Trutest but couldn't find one so I made a frame, I have made it about 3 times as long, I bent up the tube in a shitty home made hand crank bender witch is well over 100 years old, I pored beach sand in the tube as well, the bends are nice I would say.

    Y blocks are still kind of cheep, everyone would think it was a chev motor.

    I use to pick them up for $100 each, but 80% of the time they were 302s

    Is the water pump leaking?, the 4.1 motors have that shitty steel plate with a gasket on both sides, one behind the impeller
