    The Mule

    Thanks, Ive seen that. Got time to think it over , much more work to do. Might just use a Hi/Lo reverse box from a UTV. Cute little thing, no need at the time, but was asked to help tip the bin into a scrap barrel, needless to say I did not let that happen. Completely disassembled, needs...

    The Mule

    Im only 23, but I'm already wanting something more easy going, like with suspension and such LOL. I don't get it. This build should last several hundred+ hours. Most hot rod go karts wont last 50. And it will be enjoyed practically daily. Even my V-twin kart will go a few hundred and smoke...

    The Mule

    Ok, The inital plan was to couple a 8-11hp motor to a 30 series TC, mounted on a FNR gearbox from my mud mower. From the FNR, there will/would be a jackshaft for extra reduction, as you said, it's gonna be quite heavy. This would limit the top speed/ gear ratio to around 25mph tops, to still...

    Replaced sheared flywheel key, engine fires more, but still doesnt start.

    With points yes , but he upgraded to magnetron ignition, no breaker points. It can be 4+ degrees advanced or retarded and still run. I was trying to narrow the problem down for the op , If he has good spark, fresh timing key as the op stated, and compression, I would lean towards a...

    Replaced sheared flywheel key, engine fires more, but still doesnt start.

    Ok, is the spark bright blue? Find somewhere to ground the plug, cliplead might help. Anyways, With the shroud off the motor, spin the flywheel backwards, against compression stroke. It should bounce back if the engine has adequate compression to run.

    The Mule

    Ran out of tube, time to call it a day. Probably pick up another 30' . Also need 1/2" hardware for the front bumper. Currently 100" end to end, or 2.54 Meters. The bumper will add 6'' .

    ARC Rod Bearing Replacement

    Shoud be able to do it with your fingers. Each babbit has a locating notch. Push down on the other side, without a notch, and try to spin them out.

    Quick bits

    That's a bummer. Did you replace the fuel pressure regulator, or just the gasket? Anyway , One of these got dumped in the junkyard today, rotted deck. I have been looking years. Lawn boy Duraforce 2-cycle 6.5hp. I hope Russ2251 is doing well. In his words, clone killer.
