Well I've decided that I'm going to get a dirtbike. Either a 250 or 450 four stroke (not a 250 two stroke), probably a few years old. I thought about a smaller two stroke, but those don't like trail...

Here's my '14 Baja Warrior. I bought it new, and ended up rebuilding the engine (improper ring installation from factory), and I pulled the governor while I was in there. While the 196cc was off, I...

Briggs has had an EFI v-twin for a few years now (so does Yamaha, but theirs is a vertical shaft). I remember seeing it a year or two ago when looking for parts.

And I got the Warrior to start...

Looks cool. The sea foam green is a bit of an odd choice if you ask me, but it looks like it used to be red. Ditch the HF specials and get some real tires up front. And wasn’t that engine going on...

The parts came in over the weekend, and they’re already on the engine. And think I found a name for this thing, Freeby Jeebies, because I’m sure this this thing’ll be “fun” to ride, and because the...

Hope that works. I’ve been forgetting to ask, when you installed the 72t sprocket did you have to buy a longer chain, or just move the axle forward and engine back?

That’s a good use for old parts. I’d see if the seat you have will fit inside that wheelbarrow. It’d be a cool body (you’d have to cut the flat side out).

Now that has me wondering. I might pull the flywheel off one of my predators to see. But I remember that the low oil sensor mounting holes were tapped on my minibike which never had a low oil sensor...

I think I may have found the answer for putting lighting coils on a predator. This:

It's a tillotson 212 crankshaft, so I'd think it should...

I'd sent them a massage asking what engines they came out of. And I'd pay that much for the slide carb.

It’s got carb issues. Pull it apart and clean most of the junk out of the bowl, then soak it in carb cleaner (the kind that comes in a 1 gallon paint can) for a day or two. Might need a rebuild, BMI...

Yeah if I get a Vic, it'll be stripped down as much as possible. So inside the interior will be gutted, and all the accessories will go bye bye, except for basic power steering, radio and a/c (it...

First off, if those are harbor freight wheels, get rid of them. They don’t hold up at all. The bearings are junk, the tires fall apart, and the rims are cheap metal. I had a kart flip on me once...

I’d be looking for a 1998 to 2012 (second generation) Crown Vic. That or a 1979-1993 (third gen) or 1994-2004 (fourth gen) mustang. The third gen stangs came with Ford small blocks, so a Windsor...

IDK, I'm seeing old patina that looks authentic, around an engine that looks conspicuously clean. But overall it's a cool car.

The Bronco Bronco. I'm not sure is a 351'll fit in a Bronco II. But I'm think a 351 fox body, or maybe a fox 4. If I go the rout of the crown vic, I'm cutting the hood and getting a high rise intake....

That is pretty cool. Though my edger's got that beat by a year (it's an 84). Difference is yours runs (mine needs a coil, an air filter, and possibly a carb.

Could you get us the sizing numbers off the tire sidewall? Those don't look like 22s to me. Anyway, I'd say that kart'll move well enough with 6:1 gearing and a tav, with 22" tires. My kart is a lot...
