thanks. I got it running yesterday with a quick carb clean. it is not running quite right. but I think that is because one of the gaskets is torn. I think that it is going to be a nice strong engine. I polished up the shaft and next onto a kart!
I have a 243 rotax snowmobile engine a friend dropped off. I saw it running in a video chat but haven;t tried it since it arrived a year ago.
It's just the complete motor with the tapered output shaft sticking out that I would have to adapt to for drivetrain.
While i understand what clutches and things do, I do not have the knowledge to go buy the components needed that go onto that shaft so it will drive a rear axle.
kinda why I joined this site.... to learn from the like minded and hopefully put some projects together.
Hey right on im buying a 440cc duromax for my yerfdog the only reason is i have to put lights on it so its street legal which means no more 60mph+ rips i gotta keep the goveneor on the 440cc but it should still riiiip also i plan on making a new engine plate to acomodate the new big block instead of my worn out old honda ( still runs mint)
can't seem to find duromax engines in canada. Everything I'm finding with google searches are built into pressure washers , generators ect. I did find Lifan engines at home depot though. They have a 7hp, 6:1, pull and electric key start for 550ish (canadian) . Gonna have to watch for sales to come up.
