    Default New toy.

    I still have to do some research and find all the details but it's a early 70's terra jet. 4X4 amphibious has a 17hp kohler 2 cycle motor. I pulled off the body lastnight and it needs a new plug so I didn't get it fire it up.

    Looks like a blast to run around in. When you get it running and ready, you should throw up some vidoes of it.

    Put a plug in it today and it fired right up. Drove it around the shop a bit. It smokes like crazy. Might have to get a new 2 cycle oil that don't smoke. It's got the wrong belt on the tq converter. So I need to find the right one. Might try it out in the mud tomorrow if I can het it home.

    It is a fun little ride. I am going to build a roll bar for it and I need to find a seat to use for it that way I can strap myself in it and not get knocked around.

    Here are the other two video's that didn't work in the last post.
