Home-Built "Road Tracker"
I built this "road tracker" last summer in my garage. I started with a 4-cyl. Continental engine and a lock-in-and-out bell housing from an industrial asphalt trailer. A friend gave me a 3/4-ton rear end and 4-speed transmission out of a 1973 Ford pickup, so I made a steel frame and went to work. The clutch is dual belt-driven and the starter is also belt-driven by a 12-volt motor. The machine has rear hydraulic brakes.
  The rig's radiator and gas tank are also off the pickup. We enjoy driving our "road tracker" along trails whenever we stay at our cabin in northern Minnesota. Our grandkids like to ride with us and also have a lot of fun. (Gerald Krob, 4649 Bald Eagle Ave., Saint Paul, Minn. 55110 (ph 651 429-3439)
