    Hey guys I purchased some high temp engine paint at Tractors supply. Its the aluminum color. I just wanted ya'll to know it works very well so far. I rode today and got the motor hot and it is like it bonded great. Like it is powder coated.I think it looks good. These motors turn a nasty oily color in time. Here is a picture of the motor. Also, I primed it with some high temp primer.

    no i just stripped the black paint off it. I will have to make sure it dosen't rust. i wiped it down with oil but I"m sure it will burn off.also, barry made me a baffel for the muffler that worked out great.

    I rode it again this morning and I got the three speed hub hooked up so now the wheels match. I think she's a keeper. As far as the paint on the motor I used a engine paint primer and an engine paint so maybe everything will work out.It may be "bad to the bone but its slower than shiatee" . 20 inch wheels change everything. It is fun to climb around the yard and slow tourgue stuff. .shft.
