I was wondering if you guys who have done this could help me out. My question is what size h.p small engine what shaft size what kind of pulleys and size altenators. I just want to do it right the first time. Thanks for the help Tony
I ran a Pony Motor on ShaZam for many years it was a 5.5 hp Briggs & Stratton I ran two 36 Amp alt. with it I had a 3" double pulley on the motor and 2.5" double pulley on the alt. I ran dual belts with this set up motror running wide open and worked good for 5 years. and then one night it just decided to start eating belts left and right so I took it off and just added more batteries to the front of ShaZam. I now have 4 batteries on the weight bar. keep then charged up and haven't had a problem all last year.
i run a 100amp alt ant it wont keep up with a haldex pump unless u keep the engine at 4000rpm,
run a 4d battery just for the steering,hook up a momentary posh button switch and mount it to your shifter(i bought a shift knob with a trans brake button in it)also hook up a on off switch on the dash for the pump
reson is when u r driving threw the pits u can use the button when u turn and the pump wont run all the time,when u hook to the sled and r ready to take off turn the switch on dash on while pulling and off when done,u can pull all weekend on a fully charged 4d battery just running the steering
