Hey... I recently picked up a '92 LTF250 for $250. Even came with a snow plow. It was pretty neglected, and missing the left rear fender and battery cover. The time chain had jumped a few teeth, but once I go that set, and set the valves, she started right up. *Fresh oil, fresh gas, and she's good to go, but not so good to look at. *This is just for our weekend place, so I don't need a beauty queen, but i wanted a fender for safety's sake. This was how I found her... I wasn't about to spend $250 or so for new fenders, so I came up with a homemade version that works damn well. *It helped that it had already been painted black (was red originally). The pictures tell the story, but basically I used a garbage can. *We needed a new one anyway, and they're only $20 for a new one at Lowe's or Home Depot. *I created a template with cardboard first, then cut it out. *Some final bending and trimming, a few dozen zip ties, and voila! *Fender! *I even used the top rim of the can as an edge for added stability. *As a bonus, I cut a piece of the leftover can for the battery cover. *You'd think it was original. *Now we're a set to ride. *Thought maybe somebody would enjoy the end result of this crazy idea...

I have this 4 wheeler that I am building and i have encountered a problem. The 4 wheeler will not move! I am a beginner to all of this. The clutch over inside is rotating but the chain is not moving; I already replaced the clutch it is brand new. The clutch overheats and it starts to shoot out smoke. Is this a clutch problem? Am I using the wrong type of clutch? The clutch is a Max-Torque 3/4 in. bore and 10 teeth. Or is the Engine too small? Is the 4 wheeler to heavy? Im using a Briggs and Stratton 3 hp 127 cc 3600 rpm Here are some pictures of the clutch and the engine. 4 wheeler clutch and engine pictures by javydiaz - Photobucket
