Nice !!

you mentioned in your video that you kept the TRA's pulley on?? How did you do that? Did you swap the clutch and drive shaft over?

lol, no it was actually becuase i couldnt get the s8d one off. I measured where the belts went up to the engine somehow or another and was able to make a slight adjustment to where the pulley was on the crank and it lined up perfectly, but there is a setback though, I can only use the high range belt on it. The pto belt lines up and is the same. I have to make a vid of it to explain it better but it works well as shown in the vid. I might have to buy a s8d pulley and put it on, but for now it will do. I would really like to get the correct carb for the tra but i did find one im just hoping it works because the carb on it now is more suited for the s8d good for now though, i may be able to repair the broken one to i havent looked into it yet.

Do you have a puller to get the pulley off?
If you don't, they are usually pretty cheap and probably would be less expensive if you were to buy another pulley.

Once again congrats on getting it running.

Now my 900 is down for repairs:wallbanging: LOL

just wanted to give you an update...I got the throttle cable working, and it seems to work ok. I can only rev it up though if i put it on 1/2 to 3/4 choke. I am making a vid of it so you guys can see what im talking about. I have adjusted the screws every which way but it doesnt want to rev up without choke on, on the other hand it idles no problem with no choke.
