    Im a Moderator on SnowmobileForum.com
    And there is a Arctic Cat snowmobile with the Susuzki 660 motor in it! Stock it is about 80hp, but there is also a Turbo version at 125!
    It also has a dry sump oil system and fuel injection!

    Has anyone tried to put this to uses in a Mini Truck?

    does the sled motor have any provision for mounting a transmission? My snowmobile experience is sadly decades out of date now but I don't remember any sleds not having dedicated blocks that only support CVT mounting. The keyed crank could probably be dealt with - probably - but I don't think mounting an automotive transmission to the block would be easily overcome.

    EDIT to add: I hope I'm wrong!!

    the power band maybe an issue as skidoo clutches engage somewhere above 3000rpm and what is the redline? i am betting it is cammed for all high rpm power and nothing down low in the rpm

    Plowing some very heavy snow this morning I sure was wishing for some more hp!

    The crank would have a 30 MM tapered crank.
    But the intake and exhaust might be the same, maybe even the head?
    And if I can get the whole sled for parts I might look into it?

    I would say it could be done! Would be way easier if you were a machinist, or are close friends with one, and have access to a machine shop to make the taper to flange flywheel adapter, and then its just fab a motor cradle that mounts to the mini truck bell housing! I would love to see this, wouldn't mind being part of making this happen! I would love to pull wheelies in my mini!

    Did you say wheelies?

    I don't think my brakes are that good!

    I was thinking a much easier set up!
    Just pull the head and do a top end swap, intake and exhaust!
    Including the EFI system!

    Hi was intrigued by your thread here and looking to hear how you made out? Any success with the AC 660 engine swap?

    So there is a guy doing a similar thing in a Subaru 360, he is posting it on the Subaru 360 Facebook page. He took the top end/engine off of the tranny and is mating it via a custom mount plate to the side of the tranny. Its a air cooled v-twin engine like 17 hp I think. He wants it just to put around in I think as a pit car or something.

    I have a Subaru Sambar 660 with a bad engine and I may consider trying to do this with a larger 4 stroke of some kind. My issue is I do not want the engine up on top in the bed at the rear.

    I haven't had any luck yet, but a lawn mower engine is the wrong way for me!

    Oh I agree Id want something with more power IE I was thinking of a Yamaha Phazer 500 engine which generates 80 hp. But the concept/idea is there and looks plausible to do as this person is doing with a subie360.

    Again you would have to deal with the taper crank!

    There are machune shops..... i dont see why they wouldnt be able to create something custom.
