Yep you have the first Hemi 420 in captivity that I know of. Now GAB and weld up half that combustion chamber to the valves and make it a Semi-Hemi and make power low and high.

I got you. I was referring to the fact that I check the oil daily. That's what I was getting at. Never thought about the fact that sloshing would cause problems though. Don't matter now cause it's DOA!

I think he's referring to low oil sensor. I guess he took it out? He seemed pretty set on that, I have no idea why though when just unhooking a wire does the same thing.

But I doubt it was an oil problem...IIRC...last time I looked the head was off.

I meant that it's DOA because it's unhooked and I will not be hooking it back up. The engine is new, it's never been started.

It was only $126.98 shipped. It was much cheaper than others for the 8 gallon.

Right! Other than my initial Parts haul of 150 bucks on Craigs list. I have not spent more than 50 bucks yet.
But I will be DIYing a cool Copper Gas Tank!

OK, the Honda GX390 charge coil is identical as the Predator 420. Before anyone says it, I'm going to run that charge wire behind that plate. Not sure it's going to work but it fit perfectly. I also got another tool in the arsenal today, I know it's a Harbor Freight but I'm totally impressed with it after doing a couple of test cuts. It exceeded my expectations. I like the fact that it comes with a detachable table for using it vertical.

OK everyone. I've been down with health problems. I had a massive heart attack a couple of year ago that resulted in a couple of stints. I woke up at 1 A.M. in the morning with the widow maker artery 100% blocked off. The last couple of months I got down and out only to find out I had a malfunctioning stint. My body started rejecting them. 3 heart catheters and 2 new stints later, I'm starting to feel better. I'm about to kick back off and get this project finished by the end of the year. I'm waiting for the weather to cool a bit because the blood thinners I take kick my as in this Florida heat. So next month start looking for the new updates.

Sorry to bring up an older thread, but are you using the 8.5" steering rack on this? Or do the 2 seater carts use a different one?
