Boredom, lawnmowers, and spare parts are bad things. Think of it as Ratmower Part II, except hopefully this time it won't blow up.
Mid 80's Honda tractor with a liquid cooled inline 2, OHC engine. 350CC. turbo is from a 1994 Mitsubishi 3000GT VR4. It's going to use a draw-through carb setup. We are trying the stock carb first, but if that is nto enough then it's going to use a single carb from my 80's Kawasaki KZ440 bike.
Turbo Honda Lawnmower Part 3; Test drive and RACE!
It's done! Proof that the mower actually moves under it's own power. I
ditched the various bike/snowmobile side-draft carbs for a downdraft Briggs
Nikki test drives it. There was some concern it was slower than the stock
3813... and only one way to answer that question; a showdown.

Also something to note around Mighty Car Mods: we are normal guys and are
not trained mechanics. We like to make interesting car mods and show you
how we've gone about it, but we can't promise that anything we show you
will work for your particular car, or that you won't harm yourself, someone
else, your car or your warranty doing it. Please be safe, be responsible
and unless you know what you're doing, do not fool around with very serious
machinery just because you've seen us make it look so easy. Talk to a
qualified mechanic if you are in any doubt.

Here is Slick, the owner of Slicks Garage in Palmetto,FL. and star of the
Discovery Channel's newest hit car show "Highway To Sell", doing a burnout
on his "World's Fastest Lawnmower" during the garage's monthly event called
"First Fridays on Fifth". Held the 1st Friday of each month at Slicks
Garage, 923 5th St. W. Palmetto,FL.. This was from August 2010. And by the
way, for all of you asshhats who sent me emails stating "Well, Johnny
So-and-So has the record for the world's fastest lawn mower! This ain't the
world's fastest lawn mower!"......GET OVER IT!! I don't care WHO has the
"record". IT WAS JUST A TITLE. Good grief people, get over yourselves.
