That's cool.
How is it geared. What's the top speed you think? Any suspension? So many questions....

YUP, AWD 4x4 26 x 12 x 12 tires, top speed about 50 km and about 12 in water. Chain drive to front, 18 gauge steel body with fiberglass upper. Just went to burls creek Barrie auto flea market and got a race seat with 5 point harness some led lights and a few other things for it but I'm working 6 days week so not much time to work on this, but we all know how quick I can get things done when I do have the time.

running numbers 377 rotax max rpm is 8500 377 kohler is 3500 so the rotax would not only be better for speed but is a much tougher engine, BUT I would have to rip it out of amphicat which i'm trying to sell but nobody is interested in it so might as well keep the kohler in storage and go for power as I won't sell this toy anytime soon.

Thoughts?

Will post pics as I take them and does anyone have any info on these, seems that they are harder to find info then the amphicat wads. Looking for technical info like torque specs and adjustment settings and wiring diagrams.

Wow. I had some urges on the amount of pics you posted. It was glorious.
Then as I looked through them, I was saddened by the amount of neglect that poor creature has endured.
To see it restored would bring a tear to my eye.

Hope to get some time to work on it this week but seems the rain is back, I've counted 64 days of NO rain since April first this year, also have to change a transmission in my truck as 3rd gear is completely shot.
