Default motorized cooler!!!

i have a cooler (ice chest)
a scooter
a 31cc engine
wheels and an axle

what im thinking is have the engine inside of the cooler with a jack shaft so i can ubtain a 19- 20 gear ratio
a exost pipe going out of the cooler with some kind of fan to keet the engine cool

i have the scooter with no rear wheel and have the cooler bolted on

two wheels on the back of the cooler on a fixed axle

thats all i came up with


if any1 have any sujestions please tell me

putting a engine in a cooler is a VERY bad idea.

It will melt it.. engine has no air to breath, you'd need a pretty powerful fan.

Motorized cooler is a good idea, but build frame under it and use the cooler for a cooler, a 31cc is NOT gonna work unless your projected top speed is 5mph.

Exacly. Build a frame and use the cooler as a seat or somthing. And a cooler is ment to keep cold or heat INSIDE the box, So do you realy think it's a good idea?

That little 31 isnt gonna push a drive system, I would recommend just having the shaft rub on the back tire, raise/lower engine as a clutch.
