I still haven't gotten my Copar yet, as my last check was small, and didn't have the money to ship it.

I am hoping to have it here within the next two weeks, or less. Stay tuned to this thread for more updates, and pics as I plan on fixin er up!!!

Anyway, I took a load of scrap steel in, and saw an old Snow Shark sittin there, and after a lil wheelin N dealin I brought this 1965? k141 home for 10 bucks. I checked the oil, unscrewed the plug, put some gas in the bore (spilled some on top LOL), and gave er a yank. Wouldn't ya know she fired up on the first pull! She gonna look good between the frame tubes of a t65. It's a start!!! That ol Jonny Cash tune "One piece at a time" sound familiar? LOL

Stay tuned........​

I see a Centrifugal clutch on it. I wonder what it was used on. Go Kart or mini bike comes to mind. You got a great deal on it whatever it's history.

Yep - I'm looking forward to this project. If you didn't live so far away, I would DEMAND that you bring it out to the Zagray show in July :thumbs:
Believe me I wish I could!

Did the t65 have a kohler? I was thinking it was a 143302 briggs. I have a buddy that in Conn. That is getting his t 50 ready for the show.
You are correct, but this was cheap, it showed up first, and it will do.

That was a sweet deal on the engine!
Thank you. I thought I did good too.

Nice find. That will look great on your Panzer.
YOU BET!!! :thumbs:

Infact it is a clutch that came on it. The Snow Shark was all chain drive with a clutch. The engine was on it when I bought it, and I pulled it off. Was a super nice blower, but could not keep it as I have nuff crap already, and the Olady is steamin about all the stuff in the "Man Cave". :shoot3: LOL

LOL. you bet!!! It was great, I was just in awe. :rocker2:

Kinda funny, I started it on the floor, and it's icy in front of the garage, and ended up doing the splits from the ice. It REALLY hurt (pulled a muscle). Funny how a guy can laugh cause the engine fired, and moan from pain at the same time. HAHAHA

Those sharks are hard to find and worth some $$$ around here. I love mine when it wants to run correctly. It's one beast of a machine!

After a little debate, and lots of beers in the driveway, think this will be the new heart(s) in the old tractor. It's still in mockup, but looks cool. P.S. welding when your hung over, and shakey isn't recommended. Lol Everything is bolted in with no extra holes.

The drive will be almost all chain once I figure out where it's all going, except the original primary, and secondary pulleys.

Look closely, you can see it on the front of the trailer. Stay tuned.

Well, finally back at it!! It's been almost 2 years since I have driven this thing, and frankly, I'm not waiting any more. I have decided to ditch the twins for now, and just make it useable for now. I may pickup the twin engines, or repower with something else down the road, but for now it lives.

The tank on the hood is a test tank. It did come with a tank, but I'm going to use that for my other Panzer, so I have to figure out what I'm going to do in that department yet. I do have a fuel pump if need be, so I'm gonna have to do some thinking about it. At least I can drive it now. :)
