Damn, that Engine is CLEEEEEAN! And there's a fair amount of labor in that fuel tank. Good stuff! :-)

If that's the gas tank it looks pretty small. And these engines love fuel.

Yeah, I am very happy with the purchase. Does anyone know which bushings I need for inside the Farr mount plate? Stock Engine Bushings? If so, anyone know a part number? I bought my frame as a roller and I don't know what these should be as they were MIA.

Thanks!

Anyone know if the Douglass Redline Wheels that are on chucklenuts at aftershot motorspurts Motorsports website are still in production? I stopped by my local Honda dealer today to see what they had for wheels, and there was none that fit. Or, if anyone knows of a aftermarket wheel that fits well I am open to options.

Thanks for all the info so far!

I believe Douglas makes wheels for our oddies: http://www.douglaswheel.com/catalog



If you want steel wheels that fit close to oem check these out....

I like your style... Exhaust, Engine mount cable etc.... Laid out right in front of the fireplace.

Great kit, awesome power, inexpensive (relatively), incredible reliability and you'll be able to find seals, pistons, bearings... and the list goes on.... :-)

Yes, it uses the stock Engine mount bushings.

You'll want to either use stock mounts or else find something similar in hardness (durometer) or perhaps something even a little softer. With more power and torque comes more stress on the 30+ yr-old steel frame. Good Engine mounts and even some gusset-work on the frame is certainly a good idea on a Rotax swap.

I plan on having a batch of mounts made. I found the last two new bushings and washers in the country in SD, FL, MA, and IL(or so Honda says). If anyone else is interested in them as a group buy type thing, I will start a separate thread on it.

Made some progress this morning. Got the gearbox case cleaned up and installed. Does anyone know the thread pitch and size of the bolts that hold the dog bones to the gearbox?

Nice! I want to buy one of these Rotax kits also. Can't wait to see how it comes out.

If your talking about the two stays that go beetwen the transmission and the Engine
They are a metric thread at 8mm with a 1.25 mm pitch
Sorry cant get you the length but shouldn't be to hard to work out
Cheers

Thanks! I got mounts over the last week, so the project can continue! I am a little unfamiliar with the Rotax, can anyone tell me what these two connections are for?

Can anyone tell me if this bracket with the bolt in it is stock? Its currently hitting the tune pipe. I don't want to cut it off if I don't have to.

That is not a stock tab on your frame. You are missing a stock tab close to that location though. It would have been located about an 1 1/4 inches to the left of the tab shown in your picture. The side air scoop would have mounted there.

- The brass barb is your fuel pump pulse (goes to fuel pump).
- The tube off the crankcase is an oil tube that lubes the rotary valve cam (goes to oil reservoir).

- The pair of brass barbs are the oil lines from the oil pump (pair of banjos off the pump).
- The tube off the crankcase is an oil tube that lubes the rotary valve cam (goes to oil reservoir).


The rotary cam valve lube lines...I don't remember which is feed and which is return. Check the sled forums.

If you ever decide to just run pre-mix, you still need to maintain lubrication to those rotary cam valve lines. Still need an oil bottle, but a smaller/simpler one will do. Some folks just run a hose from one barb to the other, but some prefer a tank so as to provide some cooling as well as a plentiful supply of good clean oil.

Thanks for the help D$! I wish this kit would have came with a little more information on where stuff goes, as I have not had experience with anything Rotax before. I have attached a few more photo's of some more things I need information on. Sorry for all the questions, but I want to make sure I do this right.

Any progress on this? I can see from your previous post that you are uncertain how some of the parts provided are used for install. Have you gotten any support from Farr-Offroad / Emmanuel? I really want to purchase one of these kits myself but am also not familiar with the Rotax Engine & without install instructions I feel that I would be a bit lost also. Emmanuel is a member on this site also I believe. Please keep us updated on progress / install. I feel this thread could be of help to many.

Any updates? I purchased his kit also about three weeks ago and have gotten two boxes of parts and waiting on a third box. It looks well built, but I have not started the install yet due to waiting on parts. I will start a build tread of my own once all the parts arrive.

I will have to put together an installation guide for these kits

The oil injection pump is removed on all the engines I sell.

The oil tank on the fuel cell is for the rotary valve shaft lubrication, the two fittings on the tank connect to the two large fittings above and below the intake. Do not run the Engine without filling with oil, the brass gear will strip within 10 minutes

The two small brass fittings on the intake are where the oil injection lines originally connect, a small line need to be installed to connect the two together

On the carbs the large fitting is the fuel in, the fittings on the side are the overflow lines, the small fitting in the front is the primer fitting
