After the Rat Rod

Post by Jim in RP » Mon Nov 04, 2019 3:38 pm

We went back to the boat and Gator Tail Outboard.
The Rat Rod turned out WAY to heavy for that CH 440 and we scraped The Rat Rod. The Gator Tail Outboard powered by a 3.5 HP. lawn mower eng. was way to small for the pontoon boat.
So plan "J" put the 440 on the Gator Tail and the 3.5 HP. lawn mower eng. back on the lawn mower. :roll:

Have you tried the re-powered Gator Tail yet?

No, still have some bugs to work out. Like putting the governor back on the 440. Need parts to do that because I destroyed the governor linkage to fit the rat-rod. :evil: O-well live and learn or if I live long enough I might learn. :roll:
