"Baby Tractor" motor sounds good. Smile So, John and Franz, I'm asking.

As I finish my Super, I'm about ready to have Brandon build my Shorty motor.

The Super has a 1904. What is the dif between that and a 1914? :-k Would the 1914 help me pull wheelies? \:D/

Cost about the same to build?

1914cc is a 1600cc with the stock (85.5mm) piston bore opened up to 94mm. It's pretty much like assembling a stock engine other than a little machine work on the case and heads.

1904 is a small stroker crank with stock pistons. No or very little machine work/clearencing requied.

If you want to do wheelies, I'd go with a big engine. We always start with 94mm pistons/cylinders. A 82 or 84mm crank would make something like a 2276 or 2332cc. I'd go with dual 44 webers in a truck too (dellorto jet access would be a whore).

But don't listen to me. Let Brandon do his thing. He's probably has his own preferences and opinions.

Machine work money + stroker crank/chevy rod money = could have a 2332cc

Great ideas guys! Thank you!

Now I need to start thinking about wheelie bars and making sure the front suspension can handle the landings. #-o
