Re: Diesel Engines and Conversions
I was thinking that the HT would need a new head, cylinder, piston, conrod, and maybe crank. The electrical system would have to be modified as well. I don't know enough to tell whether or not the other HT parts would be too stressed by the conversion.
What would be nice is if, while we are modding these motors one of us could do a belt drive conversion, ie place a similarly-sized belt drive sprocket (is that what belt drive wheels are called?) on the output shaft of the HT and have a cheap belt-driven motor with a clutch, another thing to think about.
Motorcycles, Motor-bicycles and bicycles- two wheels and the open air is all I need.
