Default 2020 - Sears LT8 "Nasty Noma" Full suspension Off road

Why not , building full tubular frame with long travel suspension and big tires.

Old noma built mower, re-badge by sears

Typical stamped mower, peerless 700, chain drive

We had one growing up! Im on the right, as you can see my dad threw a 18hp twin on it, and removed the hood

For power I am using a genuine gx390, getting bored to 90mm, stroker crank 69mm, ARC rod , 306 cam 240 dur, forged flat top piston, big valve head, anyways it will be 440cc , and run about 11 to 1 compression. Should be fun.
