Kelley's Elderly Engines'
HOT ROD LAWNMOWER
This is our Fairmont Lawn Tractor. It was featured in the April 1993 GEM. (p. 16) This picture was taken many moons ago. Boy, do I look young! :-) This "radical unit" has a Fairmont railroad section car engine mounted on a General Electric ElecTrac lawnmower chassis. This combination does 20 MPH in third gear! The only thing that's changed, is that the cherry - bomb muffler is now under the running board, so the two - cycle oil doesn't soak us. I want to take lawnmower technology to the next level:
This mower features a V-6 car engine, headers, a Crane cam, Holley 550 CFM 4-barrel carb, five-speed manual transmission, and a suicide clutch.
