I am almost finished with a stock build first gen FL250 and plan to build a competition version similar to yours afterward.
I wish I would of found this one before you did. Congrats.
The radiator I ordered for the future build is shown below. My head is Rand and will atop a modified FL250.
I want to talk to Hoser when the time is right about stroker options or which way would be best to go with my build.
Anyways, finding original parts for your machine will be hard. Do you know if the two gents in the articles from NorCal are still kicking?
That is who I would start with.



I did look on Google for about 20 min each. I found a Stan Cargo racing in Dirt Track in NorCal. Probably him. No contact info yet. The other guy still has last names living in his hometown. Perhaps I will try some phone numbers. I have got the contact info for the writter of the magazine artical. He is a member at threewheelerworld. I send him a PM but he has not been active for 4 weeks.

Thanks for the axle info it helped a lot. I was wanting to replace the U-Joints. Do you think the U-joints are special made or a standard size Joint? The axles are all fine. The U-joints in there now seem fine and will probably work. But I would really like to change them out.


the u-joints look like standard PTO units (from tractor or ??) that are available from most equipment supply companies,several sizes available, what most of us used in the old days,, what my class III swing axle car has on it,,, you take a stock fl250 axle and cut it down and cut 1/4 keyways into the ends and slip the u-joint on,, I used old 1975 toyota carola car axles (rear drive) and shortened them to the length needed,and turned the ends to the u-joint size and keyed,, i used 7/8 dia for mine as that was the next size down from the stock oddy axles (the turned areas on the oddy axles are .980 so they need to be reduced) or you may find a metric size today (not available in the old days),, not sure what your axles are,, maybe something custom.. for the IRS we used the 1975 VW rabbit left side axles (compressed length 20 3/4 long) and made a diff hub with the fl250 spline in it and a center axle splined the full length with the gearcase at center of the car,, your is offset slightly like my old car.

Good shot of how they did the driven. Reverse it and flipped it around.
