Hello karters I have recently signed onto a new project on making a mac 10 clone. Also would like a bit of kick to it as well quick question has any here ever ran direct drive were you can never stop well that was what the motor had I was thinking that this motor was cloned back in the late 50s early 60s. Another question is that an Mc 10 carb also an Mc 10 intake manifold has great compression and spark definitely a runner. If you have any info that you can spare would be greatly appreciated even as paint wise Thankyou
need to see backside of carby.
the hinged cover you have is cool came with some saws that look is from way back.
to be a correct clone you'd need the d44 or mc10 cover but i like that hinged look too.
several of my next batch of ten clones are slated to look alot like your motor.
post a pix of the whole kart and a couple more views of the engine.
definite d44a or d55a block doesn't have the extra bit in the casting around the pto.
was it me i'd build it back to a runner and leave as is the cool factor is very good.
or you can make yourself crazy and built a exact mc10 clone and look like everyone else!!!
still want pix of kart.
The manifold is a kart type. Newer ones mount carb both ways and has mounting boss for later shrouds. Nothing like that ever on chainsaws. Your chainsaw block is an early variation of what was used for Mc 10s. You would have a Mc 10 by changing the cylinder head and flywheel shroud. That Clinton E-65 puts out 4.5 HP on a good day. Mc10 blows circles around it on a bad day.
