Homlite Trail King

#1
Starting a Trail King Mini . Haven’t found a lot of info in print yet . Pretty kool Mini all the same, unquie suspension, chassis hinges in the middle with a leaf spring . Going run jack shaft instead of high low gear box . Going run a 5hp Tecumseh with Max Torque Clutch and up grad from drum brake/disk scrubber to scooter disk brakes front back . Semi restored is what it will be for frame wheels brakes white powered coated wheels . White paint on engine , it will have new truck bed in back . Adding a much smaller tie down / grab rail for bed area . It has no shocks for leaf spring suspension. I have access to mini coil overs too cure that issue .

Got old beat up motor plate removed . Used a sawzal / right angle Dotco / 1/2 X 12 belt sander / 1 1/8 Belton belt sander / and a right angle disk sander . Completely over welded by manufacturer . Square frame bits and bracing , BAHAHA nothing is square , THATS why I am going new axle mounts with slots . The whole rear wheel ,
assembly rides on 2ea 3/8” 1 1/2” bolts . And press fit the bearings in to the hub.
