We Got a Vintage MTD Mini Bike (for FREE!) Can We make it Run + Ride?
We picked up this old MTD mini bike for free from Go Power Sports! In today's episode, we get this vintage mini bike's 3.5 horsepower Tecumseh flathead engine running, unstick and install a few new parts, and take it for a ride out at the Pate Swap meet. This rusty mini bike has been sitting for years with flat tires, old fuel in the tank, and a janky dual muffler exhaust. We find out: will it run?

Thanks for Watching!

    You have a problem with the CVT Belt, too worn. I guess just get it running to see if it even moves!

    Problem I see in putting a fuel line a filter and shutoff valve. Put the fuel line filter ahead of the valve these valves can get clogged and won't work if junk gets into them. These current fuel shut-off units are JUNK. The filter will show what's in the fuel supply as long as it's a clear plastic filter. Another problem, some of the fuel valves are mounted on the tank which has a screen inside the tank. Guess what happens if that screen gets clogged? I remove those junk plastic screens and fuel valves. Use a tapered tap to turn threads into the tanks' outlet, insert a brass fitting into the tank outlet to accept a flanged brass nipple. The fuel will pass through the filter filter then the shutoff valve. Those Chinese fuel valves are JUNK and throw them in the trash! I've been there and seen how they are built by tearing them apart, total junk! Make sure the fuel cap is vented otherwise, a short run will be available. :)

    Y'all have the WRONG CARB on this unit! Not necessarily hating on the primer, but these old motors come with an adjustable main jet. Maybe consider swapping in the pre-emissions jet to the snowblower carb that's on the bike. The timing is also adjustable on these engines, via the oval bolts on the condenser housing. It's likely to be out of spec if anyone has messed with the points before. Good possibilities for free performance, I bet this little flatty has more in 'er

    I really like that the old school fuel gauge was explained by Isaac. I remember those and how they were. They were pretty awesome when they didn't get stuck! 😁 I noticed that at around 14:55 both of you guys were scratching your head on the same side at the same time.

    I had been building a mini bike for the past few months and I was just riding at my grandparents house when it started acting funny o stoped and checked the oil it was full so I kept riding next thing I know it started to bog down so I held it at full throttle but it didn't make a difference in the rpm then it threw the rod the good thing about it is I already have a engine waiting for it. But I loved that predetor but that's th risk of having fun.

    Rarely will Ike outrun John due to John ; has bigger balls,is shorter aka more aerodynamic,is lighter weighing which means greater hp to weight ratio which translates to quicker acceleration,higher to3o speeds ,less fuel used... 😈
