    to keep it from charging backwards you can mount it below the crankshaft
    bottom--YOU WOULD HAVE UNDERDRIVE THEN AND MAKE BIG HORSEPOWER!!! :lol: :lol: :lol:

    My battery has too much power and I use it to suck some out.

    You can also use the lower mount by powermaster with a mandrel to align the belt.
    I think I used the No. 63844 on one of my motors.( Scroll down a little bit and you'll see it)

    Dak,

    I made it myself. I run a machine shop so it is easy for me to write a program and machine up what I need. I also made the one piece drive mandrel / pulley.
