Sounds like we're talking custom here Jim, would doubt iwithout some mods as in hood cutting or a short pan if one is available for a 161 and then would be close.......regardless if you attempt it :wwp:

Well I just got this one about a month ago , really don't want to cut the hood , I was thinking dropping down the frame where the motor sits , I was just wondering if anyone else ever put one in a RJ , heres a picture of it when I picked it up5a3f25da49639_RJ58.jpg.a286a2a083db01eb8ab8fa4f24488ce9.jpg

It would be a lot easier to raise the hood, then when you find a good K-91 you won't have to undo your hasty error.

Maybe @Ken B will chime in here. I believe he put a K-181 on a Suburban which will have the same clearance as a RJ. It was tight but I don't think there was any hood cutting done. :)

What's wrong with the motor in it Jim? Can't be gone thru and saved?

Its not the right motor and I want something bigger in it , it has a tec 4hp motor from a snowblower , I want a kohler but bigger than a k90 or k91 , I will post pictures when the motor gets here , I like the idea of maybe spacing the hood up high enough to get the k161 in there

And yes the mini bike (1971 Rupp roadster 2 ) is getting modified , that's just one I picked up the same day as the tractor , its in with the other 25 mini bikes

If you just want more power, the little predator fits and has good HP. I think one could even be painted up to look a little more the part than it is.
