    Weedeater belt drive

    Gonna go work on the bottom mount and I have been thinking of ways to get some more power out of the 31cc seen people bolts these tuned pipes on leaf blowers and it's most likely better then the junk muffler on it now.

    Well it's that part of the day when all the work is finished and I have time to waste.. Gonna go look for a belt in the shed. So I can check and make adjustments for the belt to fit around both pulleys. And with the small pulley I have and a couple small pieces of metal a tensioner should be...

    sorry about the terrible photo but anyways the pulley is welded to he hub. I didn't get it completely straight like the front pulley but it should be ok I hope. The pulley on the bike clears the frame. And both pulleys line up nicely. I may have to chop and re-rout a part of the frame so the...

    Or hang it on the wall in the garage and have a neat looking belt drive bike? The engine revs really high so it should have no trouble pulling me around. If I can get it together to that point is the question.

    If the pulleys line up well enough and I can figure out a belt clutch before the engine is completely welded in place then I can probably make this work.

    The rear pulley fits inside the frame without bending the frame. I have the pulley drying with jb weld to the hub so I can let the jb weld harden make sure the pulley is true and then weld the pulley to the hub from the back.

    I'll loose the ability to pedal but with a belt tension clutch I could just take the tension off the belt and wrap a rope around the flywheel like I have been doing.

    Ruff idea of how I'm gonna mount the bolans. The angle iron will bolt right to the frame and then be welded. On the bottom of the engine i'm making a plate that will bolt to the engine and frame the same way the top mounts. The frame has been flattened in a spot to clear the flywheel. And it...

    Can you diy modify a weed eater or chainsaw? People on the rcu forums do all the time... Copper spray every gasket on the machine. Intake gets heavily scratched up on the inside. Gut the muffler also and the exhaust hole gets brazed shut and a half inch pipe sticking out of the sparkplug side of...

    Before i finalize any kind of mounting I'll tack it all together and check how it all lines up.

    Weedeater belt drive

    This is going to be a very long process i'm guessing I have no motivation to go work on the mount but all I have to do is drill a tiny hole for a dow pin and another hole for the bolt then the angle iron will hang the engine right inside the frame. At first glance it looks like the pulley's...

    Ok so this whole idea could work out just fine or be a massive failure I'm planning on using the side hang mount typical friction drive's use but instead of hanging over the rear tire I'm gonna hang it inside the frame. If I CAN get it mounted to the bike frame itself then the hardest part would...

    Weedeater belt drive

    I'm not sure how this would work out in terms of gearing? But it sure would be easy for me to weld this crank pulley off a Gen1 Chevy small block onto the rim of the bike I'm using. Not looking for a bunch of speed. Just enough power to cruise on the backstreets with..

    Weedeater belt drive

    I forgot my camera last night so no video of the 31cc running till tonight. Anyways the pulley I used on this small two stroke was very thick metal and has some nice weight to it. I noticed it sort of acts as a flywheel weight! Engine doesn't scream till it bogs anymore cause there is no weight...

    Well my buddy pointed out the lot of air compressors at the dump that have some pretty big pulleys on them. Maybe I'll go down sometime and check those out. I'm sure a pulley could be welded right to the spokes of the back rim. Like a solid mounted rag joint setup. Also I'll have a short video...
