it can be done and if time is no problem you wont need much money. Have you had look at a origonal one
always have a target
and an objective.

If the early bird gets the worm how come the 2nd mouse to the trap gets the cheese ??

Yes the G150 is 3.5hp and the G200 is 5hp. 3.5hp is plenty for the Bantam.

I think that funny engine mount has been riggerd to accomodate the reduction gearbox as much as to make it easier to use as I'd have thought it unbalanced the machine making it tail heavy..... I'm off to pick up a pair of Howards this week, a 400 that I'm hoping will be the front-line machine for my alllotment and a Bullfinch that is probably a bit small for me but with the minor fettling it needs done I'm certain someone will want to give it a good home

would i be right in assuming that the reducer thing on the side of the engine would marry up to other briggs and stratton engines for example a 5hp of a cylinder mower or 3hp of a cylinder mower ,but probably wouldnt fit onto a honda .and what is the purpose of the reducer and could i do without it ,or would it be to fast ???????

The gear box would probily fit any "Q" frame engine. And would not be too fast just more fun ;)
