Hey troops. Just picked up a 35cc McCulloch and was wondering if anyone ever sucessfully converted one. This is going to be my first conversion(no sh!t huh). Is this a suitable candadate or should I trash it now. It runs great for now. Side carb and rear exhaust setup. I know I'll have to make a new exhaust stack. Am I just wasting my time trying??

I don't know how they look for converting but I have a chainsaw that I am thinking about. I know years ago when I raced carts in europe they where one hot engine and they went like stink. 2 Mac 20's pushed my cart just over 100mph. That was quite a rush for 96cc motors and your butt was only 1 1/2" off the pavement. Keep us informed in what you are doing and when I start mine in the spring I will let you know.

Ch in particular have always been fans of the Mculloch engines and make conversion kits for them,and you may find some wisdom reading their website........these are great people to deal with and i have had good success using their ignitions on Ryobi conversions..........

here is a few pics of my converter 32cc mcculloch....
if you want more, just ask.
it ran fine as a chainsaw and im just waiting on a few parts to run it as an
airplane engine. it's not completly done... a few more steps b4 it's complete! :) but easy enough to convert, cut everything u dont need off, cut the clutch shaft off...
and here is about the only peice you'll need to purchase. unless u go to elect. ignition.

Chuckster, do you have a pic of the adapter plate bolted to the bottom of the engine for the mount, and the type of mounting rails you used?
