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.

How to: Build a Better Clutch: Part 1
PART 1....This is a "how to" on building a better/stronger clutch for your
off road tractor or racing lawn mower or whatever. This whole process took
about 2 weeks of working on it in my spare time. I had to custom make
everything out of spare parts I had around the garage. I Think it came out
really well. It gives an incredible amount of belt tension, fully
adjustable, and works like a dream.

How to: Make A Riding Lawn Mower FAST!
Here's a video covering the pulley swaps, and custom tensioner pulleys I've
built and installed on our off road and mudding tractors. Pulley swaps make
you lawn mower faster. You want to
increase the size of the front, and/or make the back pulley smaller to
increase the speed of your lawn mower or tractor.
Green MTD has a 4" front, stock rear
Craftsman crawler has stock size pulleys
Murray has 4" in the front, and 5" in the rear
