Kind of hard to blow up an engine that's solidly bulletproof. Being a non-interference engine, even if it goes out of time, no risk to the valve train or pistons.

But man, that car is even older...

There's a lot of potential for that Iron Duke engine. Could build a buggy around it and run it on Propane just for fun.

What years would those be from? The Pathfinder has gone through several redesigns over the last 20 years.

Pictures didn't load before I posted above. But, yes they are similar with how the stub axles bolt onto the CV axle.

They appear to be closer to S10 CV axles than VW. 27 spline on one end, 29 on the other. It's something to consider. Also, the overall length is 25". So with running an 8.5" wide spool with flanges,...

That is true and people don't want to see it that way. I figured though, might as well get some stuff just incase fear buying gets insane and shelves are empty. I just rather be set and not have to...

It has infected way more than S.A.R.S did years back and did it in a shorter amount of time. Never thought I'd see a near global pandemic in my lifetime like this.

Not exactly what I meant. I never looked, but I haven't seen a 4 valve industrial engine head. 4 valves generally flow more air than a 2 valve.

I've been stocking up on some goods for the Coronavirus that is not even remotely contained. It has similar flu-like symptoms, but you are asymptomatic for about 2 weeks. So in that time you can...

So I'm back on the prowl again. Recently I was suggested to use S10 axles instead of my Type 1 because they have much greater angles to work (claimed 30 degrees vs 12 of the Type 1). I looked into...

Wonder how long until 4 valve heads will be a thing for better flow? It's probably like $300 for that head.

I enjoy the Mod engines, but I do wish they were reliable. Every 4.6L had a faulty intake manifold that would leak at some point or another. Only time we had issues with a 2 valve 5.4 spitting plugs,...

What kind of modifications are allowed or is it relatively stock? Biggest issue I'd be worried about is oil consumption considering it'll be running at 100% the whole time.

I wonder how many engine swaps its had over the course of 6 decades? 2? 3? So glad people took care of it and not let it goes to rust.

I'm sure they'll rebuild the frame at some point. The fans/subscribers will demand it. Granted some of them wanted that Ducati engine dropped in. If you want more inspiration, look at the Chenowth...

You've sparked my curiosity, what video did you find on the 60hp 670? Was going to say sounds like a mower racer, but every sanctioning body for lawn mower racing does not allow for CVTs.

That's debatable. A go kart needs a lot of space to ride around on. RC cars? Not so much. Both can irritate neighbors (especially nitro and gasoline RCs), been there done that (with RCs). But you can...

Hopefully someone may chime in on the 670 Predator. After what happened to Vasily Custom Builds and the stock throttle sticking on his buggy, going with dual Mikuni carbs would be a good idea.

Far as I remember, no one on here has modified a Predator 420 to that extent. Grant (KartFab) modified a Gx390 extensively. But members on here? Not that I can recall. Would have to look at many...
