it looks to me like a honda clone, has ohv and the number on the case is

PW1600508090849 also says 68x45mm

im going to get a pic now, should be posted in a few minutes but i was hoping someone may be able to tell by the numbers on it, im looking to know what hp it is or cc size and maker if possible so i can find parts when i figure out whats up with it.

thanks for any help have a great day

man thats great to hear, that it can be modded nicely. the guy i bought it from said it came off a lime green go kart with a roll cage bought from RK and he thought it was a 4hp so im gonna guess its a 4.5, is there anyway that i can tell between the 3.5 and 4.5 like a dead giveaway? how do i find out which it is, cause id hate to wait a week for parts then find out i got the wrong ones.


i got the motor , 2 rear tires including the large spur gear or whatever they are called thats attached to the wheel, and the clutch setup he had on the kart all for $25 i hope thats a decent deal, i figure if i get the motor going its worth it and even better if i actually am able to mod it then yay ill be a happy stamper

Youre welcome and you might say I do it for a living...if you seen the amount and type of equipment I have youd understand...if I had to pay someone to repair my stuff Id be bankrupt by now...........LOL

I started riding at age 7 and started doing my own tuning and oil changes at age 9,,by 14 I was tuning up the neighborhood cars,,doing brakes and oil changes for extra cash,,at 18 I opened up my own shop...........

thats awesome man, did your pops get you into it or help you with it at all?
ive been bankrupt, it sucks and thats one of the reasons im trying to learn to do it myself. I have a ton of tools by now but need to get some heavy duty machinery and a shop, im working in out in the elements right now so it kinda sucks when it starts raining cause it ends the day and i can only work on small stuff that wont make a mess or cuase any dust in the house for my daughter. ive seen some of the stuff you have built and i am very much impressed. i probably know about what you knew at age 9 luckily my pops has always been there to bail me out and keep my vehicles running but now hes getting up in age and i just hate to bother him to do this stuff anymore so im giving him a break and growing my own pair.

oh yeah, i went and bought a mini hacksaw today so i was gonna try to cut the fins off my flywheels, is 3/8 of an inch the furthest i can cut them down or will it have a neg. outcome if i go further down the fin??? just wondering so i dont try to play hero and cut off too much making the motor useless until i get a new flywheel

Yes my Dad did help out and the one who taught me the basics and then some.He was machinist first class on the USS Hancock from 59-67.................He owned his own machine shop for over 40 years..I worked for him for a couple years when I was 16-17 after school and on saturdays but went in my own direction so no-one can say I skated through life on my Dads coattails and hard work............Then vocational schools like Boces helped me aswell

The way I mod my flywheels are the best way for me and my builds....The engine doesnt gain too much extra heat by cutting the fins too short and the flywheel performs better than stock modded that way..............

awesome man, once again, moron proof! cool i was hoping to get the pics on how you did that, i found the link i was looking for with the boost bottle directions and the one you described in the link just seems easier and no where near as hard to mount. does any basic hardware/lumber store carry the brass barbs or would an auto parts store be more likely to carry them?

You can get the barb from any hardware store practically...I use the fittings that dont work with my airtool hose ends and is a great way to recycle unuseable items.................
