    Yeah, let me pull it out and I'll take some pictures. What do you want to see?

    WELL.... you probably can answer my curiosity with out having to pull it out and all of that. But I wouldn't mind a look. I had an idea for a trike, but making the choice for which drive leaves lots of interesting options but not a lot of 'this works great.' Also the Model A style front end: doing that for looks to go with the Hot Rod theme, or?

    What I do see is the motor, mounted before a firewall, a transmission is behind that I suspect, but then the drive to the wheel is a belt drive - rotated 90 degrees from the transmission if you ran a little 3 speed or something. So a small 90 degree axle assembly? Or hydrostatic?

    Thank you!

    Yeah, the front is somewhat style over substance, but it seems to work well enough - the Hot Rod scene is very large around here, so its something people will recognise.

    So it's currently an 88Ci Harley engine at the front, going to a 5-speed T9 gearbox out of a Ford Sierra. At the moment, we're using a differential from a honda GL1100 (half of our proper gearing is here, but the housing hasn't arrived yet). So, small 90 degree axle assembly.

    Making the jump to 4k TV this weekend. Refund in and we're splurging a bit. Nothing crazy though.

    How do you get content for that

    I hope that works (never quite sure if they do or not)

    EDIT: It cut off the bottom of the picture for some reason.

    Okay, the pic made it through on the link - that is kinda clever.

    Good use of parts - the Gullwing Diff looks like it would work well. The transmission would be a decent choice for size and layout. How hard was it to mount the Harley block to the transmission?

    And the flying axle thingy the diff is connected to - did you have to do that a couple times to get it right, or did it drop in an rock from day one? I can see where it might be a total pain in the ass, but maybe it wasn't.

    Good job either way!

    Due to the way I was looking at what I want to do, I figured on an engine mounted proper inline, with the original gearbox and a chain or belt going back. Simple, less profanity.

    If this is in reference to me - Netflix and Amazon are doing 4K streaming on some stuff. I know Vudu has some shows in 4K UHD as well. I figured, I'd future proof ourselves a bit with this, as 4K is only going to get more mainstream.
