They are 49cc and around 3.5 to 4 hp each. For pocket bike and scooter application the have to be >50cc and RATED at 2 hp or less to qualify for a motor vehicle that can be operated on the road without a linence but in other applications the mfg rates the same motor at 3.5 and as high as 4.2 hp. At $110.00 new they are the cheapest hp going

I made simple addapter plates to bolt the 2 engines together. The coupling is simply a standard clutch drum in place the recoil start on the second engine that locks up the 2 engines around 3500 rpm.

Thanks Dom: The real Freight Train dragster was the first car to go 200 mph in the 1/4 mile on gas.

Man that thing is neat. I have started a project of linking a couple zenoahs the same way, but it has required a lot of machine work and I haven't started them yet to see if it works. Seeing your finished custom twin is inspiration to complete me project. It will be a twin engine top fueler. Awesome work!

Thanks, linking these engines was very easy requiring nothing more than a hole saw in my drill press to make the adapter plates I can't wait for good weather so I can take it out and run it.
