As far as I know Honda motor is not legal in CP


Honda did have a vertical motor in a lawn mower, I worked on the only one I ever saw,
it came in the mower shop I worked at one time. I wanted to buy it from the customer.. LOL

Im partial to Kohler as that is what my sponsor builds. 

I dont think you can go wrong with either one as long as it is done right.

You could do like me and just make them yourself?

I used 6 discs cut from 3/8 steel, drilled and welded a 3/4 sheave to them and drilled out my bolt pattern. Then I welded 4 grade8 bolts through the bolt holes, and your all set. Total cost was about $20 (cut the discs from scrap from a local welder in town - freebie)

I am in the process of building a second mower right now. Neither one is for racing though and both actually have larger tires and are still used for mowing 8) I am looking for a supplier to get the rear hubs. 3/4" bore with the 4 on 4 bolt pattern? I have read a couple threads of people stating they were only around $10ea? The cheapest I have found so far is around $50 for the pair after shipping. I live in Mapleton Utah. Unfortunately the guy that ran the small mower racing association near me passed away last winter (Roger Hope) as I was getting to know him and getting ready to build a basic racing mower for my kids to have fun on. I have been reading threads on here for a while. I build all kinds of frankenstein go karts and buggies for my kids, as well as what the neighbors call the Monster mower.
