Re: Jet Snowmobile Project/Team

Hi Luc Nice kart I have to admit ... Roger that for the correction ... The reasonS why I want to use roller bearings rather than journal bearing brass bushing is because; 1) They are more tolerant to vibrations, especially when you're 300 kl/h on a "Bumpy" frozen lake, and 2) I have developped a clu...

Re: need help,can anyone identify this engine?

Hi,
ide really like to go for 100 to 200 lbs,valved or valveless,any suggestions?

Nice day,

Not that it was for sale, but since I'm not using it and don't I will either, why keep it collecting dust. Here a picture, fully built, ...
