What do you all call the metal that covers the cooling fins? I know the part where the pull rope is is the shroud. I was wondering if a engine like a predator for instance could be run without all the other pieces that cover the fins and assist in channeling the air through the shroud where the flywheel and its fan blades are. I’m interested in removing some of the covers to make the engine look more like a motorcycle engine. I’m also considering taking one of my predator engines and turning it around so the head points to the front of the bike. I know the engine will be turning in the wrong direction but I’ve seen ways to correct that issue with some gears and chain. Also, could a flathead be done the same way to expose more of the fins for a more motorcycle engine look?
