Any of us rebuild the plate rubbers on these bikes?
Far as I can tell they are 1" × 3/4 and 3" long rubbers.
The plate does not come out of frame.
Think I can slide rubbers on one side then cut then reweld other side after mounts installed? Mig...so fast and not burning too bad.any ideas?
It has been a long road for this bike as its been cold in Salt Lake.
She has correct engine and very close to going for a ride.
my #1 rule now is a fully functioning kill switch...These tote got related bike will never stop if throttle sticks open they gave the power output to smoke and brake...
The famous Richard. ..
I might have bought a 6hp Saturday as the engine has 8 head bolts. .
The shroud does not match the block its a replaced one...
The block is black..
Shroud is dk silver..
Isn't it true 7-8 HP has 10 head bolts... Did I get lucky?
Me and son fly to a town. 40 minutes away today for a 7hp Briggs and end up coming home with his back seat of car full of motors! !
I can't say no to anything USA vintage.... Were at 20 maybe 25 engines now......help..but the 7hp Briggs worked perfect in the BearKat project. .
Today Im going on another engine purchase. .
Picking up a Briggs 7hp..
And might make offer on this extremely heavy duty looking Tecumseh. ..notice the aluminum recoil looks like heavy duty engine. .5 to 7 HP?
Im hoping somebody will know about this BearKat motor plate,Richard or Davis...
What the heck goes in the large circle on all 4 corners and how would we install them?
My guess is 4 large rubber mounts?
The motor plate does not come out of the bike ?
Saturday Im going to grab a older 70s...
Complete or parts
Wanting to build the engine for the BearKat project...
Were wanting to build this bike correct. ..
At this point im not fussy 60s to 70s block or parts will be fine.

Thought I would share my 30 buck Manco.
Real piece of poo.
Straight frame and surprising the fenders are there.
Everything else goes bye bye...
This is as found look close at the drive system. ..Ha Ha....
And that engine real peach...
Basically yesterday purchase is the HS40. But has the cam PTO. Ugly. .swapping the cam and side cover is a quick fix for better look.
I have a 3hp and a 5hp both 1980s parts blocks.
Basically what cam and side cover would be best choice ?
I try to act like I know everything but I don't Ha Ha....
Happy thanksgiving. ..
Getting the bike out fill the tank of premium gas and me and cousins give it a ride of snow all day.
This is that 30 buck swap meet bike and its turned out to be a very fun bike .
a 1976 Briggs 3hp updraft powers it.
