Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

hey, Anim8r. I think I had the same snowblower. I picked it out of a guy's trash and all it needed was a new rubber gas line. I made a friction drive bike from the engine, I think it was a 3 or 3.5HP Tecumseh 2-stroker with recoil and AC electric start. I took the starter motor off to make it lighter. The engine was strong and pushed the bike pretty good, but I couldn't keep it from burning up my tires. That bike is long gone, but am thinking about making a chain drive bike with the engine. You should be able to get it going if the engine is still sound. A little tip, mine came with a mikuni diaphram carb. If the unit has been sitting for a while the carb will probably need a good cleaning or rebuilt. Kits are cheap and there are instructions for rebuilding online. Other than that, the ignition is CDI so there shouldn't be anything needed there. Good luck and let us know how you come out.
