Actually I have some that were used on a small gate for about a year. The rims are warped, and the bearings are fried. And it was used on a gate! Although I must say the floater tires from tractor...

I don't have a pic of my Tahoe but I do have one of my grandfathers car. And I'd bet you'll be able to identify it immediately.

It's an '88 and either a Z52 (Street performance) or Z51...

If you used a jackshaft for the right engine the answer is most likely.

I'd think you'd have been here long enough to know that absolutely no part of the hf tires are good for karts. The bearings disintegrate after a few hundred feet, the bolts are pure rustable butter,...

Well, If you're looking to purposely blow it up, you can't go wrong with bouncing it off the limiter at the same time as a hundred shot of nitrous, after about 20 pounds of boost. But why? I mean,...

Yeah, I've had similar thoughts. I thought about doing a rwd conversion on my 2000 buick lesabre, and dropping in a sbc backed by a 4l65e. I know a 4l85 can handle more torque, but they shift with...

Which car is it, and how many miles does it have? And yeah, those aren't bad engines.

Yep, I love cars, though I'm still trying to find the right one. My great uncle is giving me an '86 f150, with a '78 Windsor 351 out of a Mercury Cougar. The truck's worthless and has no title, but...

That's what my family always does. Over the past couple of weeks we've been slowly stocking up on water and some canned goods. Though we already have a couple hundred pounds of canned food, so we're...

Well, I'm having a rough week. My $500 Trek bike, that I just got back from the shop after $100 of new tires and $120 of tune up work, has to go back. They never greased the pedals (which is included...

For the carb, I'd look on amazon or ebay for a chinese clone of a Mikuni. They're just as good, but they're less than $20. Though I'd try the governor removal first, you'll be surprised what that can...

What do you mean by "full manual?" The only thing that's different about it is that it has thumb shifters. And last time I checked every bike that has multiple speeds is a sequential setup (you can't...

I could see that being a bit too breakable. And I'd bolt on some flatstock to the front and back of the pipe that has some teeth filed into it, so it'd be a bit more like a dirtbike or quad footpeg..

I have that same tire on my manco. Ps, they suck, but you shouldn't have any trouble doing burnouts, dognuts or drifts. Just don't expect them to get that thing to start rolling on leaves or grass.

About the smallest Indy that Polaris sells at the moment (that's a twin cylinder) is limited to 50mph, but being that the one you're looking at is older, I think it's safe to say that 40 should be...

I don't know how high the gx270'll rev ungoverned, though I'd say it should at least be somewhere north of 4500. I'm not sure of what of top speed to expect, but Yamaha makes a 123cc 4-stroke...

Uh, you don't want to do clutch drops on the raptor. It once stood straight up and landed on the rear subframe after my grandfather's hand slipped off the clutch while stopped in second gear. It's a...

Well, a new gx270 might cost about as much as the rebuild parts for the original engine, plus a gx270 isn't nearly as powerful as those snowmobile engines, so it'll probably struggle without the...

The bike makes about 38hp at the wheels stock, which is enough to move a 400 pound quad with a 150 pound rider at 70+mph. And yeah, that's just a little torque steer as you run into your lawnmower.

I'd be cautious, very cautious. Broken pullstart might be the same as a worn out kickstart, or bad starter motor, which indicates starting issues. Those might be something as simple as a bad plug, or...

2 more cubic inches, but not as many revs, and no transmission. Either way it would also have some horrible torquesteer.

IDK, I think a raptor 660r engine on a manco 415-10 might just be a contender. Though it world be scary as he** with half the frame being 5/8 tubing instead of 1".

Yeah, they do seem a bit far forward. I might see about adding a bar that will double as a rear engine spacer. And there aren't many places around me with jumps, just lots of trails.
