im an engineering student and im in the process of designing and building a winch for wakeboarding and snowboarding. because here in nebraska we have just as much time with snow on the ground as we do with warm enough weather to wakeboard.
heres my delima.
11hp electic start grey hound engine 259.99 (harbor freight)
or 11hp tecumseh. pull start. no gas tank 139.99 (smallenginesupplier)
11 hp grey hound 3600prm
11 hp tecumseh 3750rpm
torque converter.....with a engine that is 11hp will i need one.
one problem i think about is i do not think they make one big enough for the 7/8" shaft.
witch engine should i go with?????
one is over a hundred bucks cheaper and has high rpm max and the other has the electric start..........
what would you do?
