Hey longjohn! I just saw a deadwood still on the road!

My son was backing up in his girlfriend's driveway and backed into a culvert. The rear wheel was bent out away from where it was supposed to be about a 45 degree angle. I took the bent parts off and took them in her dad's milk house and put them on the anvil and beat them straight with a sledge hammer and bolted them back on, good as new. (not saying much).

I don't think I ever got a picture of ours. It was always in the shop when I thought about it. It wasn't a bad looking car, I forget which model it was. It wasn't the real cheap one, my son said that was too small. That's what dad was planning on buying him.

I didn't know Brigs made a 2-stroke ?

It was 4 cycle, mounted on a wooden stand with a pulley wheel on the crankshaft.  You put a belt on it and the pulley wheel on the crankshaft of the kart engine to start it.

The richer people used an electric starter. :D  Later they used a nut drive on the kart clutch instead of a belt.

This one on the Jersey Turnpike was the small one - looked like Magilla Gorilla's car. :D

A pony motor ! We had some heavy equipment that used a gas engine to start a diesel.

The 2-stroke was that hard to start ?
