It never seen like I get much done but I work 1/2 a day and plan the other half.

Got the deck on. Made an adjustable motor mount and put it on the motor. Laid out the Jack shaft I'll have to build it up an Inch to let the big gear to clear.

The long piece of shaft will be cut off. The pully is for a brake. It will have a pully that does not turn and will operate like a belt clutch backward.

I have to make a supper structure under the deck to bolt the motor to, I'm thinking canal iron.

That looks great. I didn't think about a brake. I guess that could come in handy. LOL

I have lots of Ideas for each.
So far right o target weight.

RMP on the final drive is slightly slower than plan.
I get 882 plan was 992 rpm.
PUT the motor on governor will turn almost 4000, specs said 3500.
Still will be faster than I think I want to go standing in a sled for miles.

More work...
 I finished the brake.
Simple pull the handle with a rope and it stops.


Till I get a thumb throttle and cable , should be here next week, I started the trailer. 
It will be for no snow, and a "walking Axle" set up.
I have a set of Johnson skis I plan to strap on when there is snow and dry ground in between. I'll do a sled for deep snow.

Like a snow machine, it stops when the rpm's drop down below the clutch. If it rolls off a cliff I guess your lucky you fell off.
So the answer is no, thumb throttle should snap to idle when your hand comes off the handle bar.

A little more trailer work.



The trailer will be used when little or no snow, I can add skis If it's hard snow.
When there is a lot of snow I use the Pelican sled.

The tongue is on and works.
It has a reserve to the trailer so I can take it off, to transport and store.

is the trailer tongue rigid metal or flexxible?

looking good.  I think it needs some flashy red paint....maybe a few red flames!

I took it out in my alley and gave it a test run.
I only had a string for the accelerator but it ran quite well.
So I went and got the GPS and wound her up.
 Well less than a half block I hit 23.5 MPH, and that's where it stayed.
I was quite tickled with all the "Figuring" I did to come that close to what I wanted.
By the way have you ever gone 23.5 mph standing in a wagon?
The walking axel worked great and took out most for the bumps and roughness on the graveled alley.

NO red Bear, I'm going to go with FLAT gray, good for summer and winter hunting.
