I just purchased a used snowmobile engine (for another application). It is a Hirth 210R (400). Im not sure what the 400 means. It came out of, as the guy told me, "An early 70's AMF". I need to know more information about this engine. If anyone knows anything about it or where I can find more information please let me know. Thank you.

Hey Chevy,
Welcome to the forum. This is by far the best online resource I've found for sled information and advice... I did a quick Google search for Hirth 210R and found rewind parts, gasket kits, etc. Specs on older engine are hard to come by without buying a shop manual, but if you look hard enough you'll find them. What kind of project is this going on? I'm in the process of building a go kart around a '79 Kawi TA440 (50Hp). Let us know if you have any more questions.

Go kart. It looks like an easy engine to adapt. Its pull start so I dont have to worry about electrical or battery. The guy said it has a clutch and doesnt need any type of transmission or anything (and I would just need to put a belt on and go). It pretty much looks like it comes with everything in one self containd unit (like an actual go kart motor). My only issue is that I have no clue how big (physical size) this thing is so I dont know how hard the fab of the brackets is going to be. Thanks for the help.

I was reading this post http://www.snowmobilefanatics.com/snofan/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=7000
and it made me wonder.... Do I need both clutches for a go cart application or can I make it work with only the one that is attached to the engine. Also, it said something about gears, I dont need the gear box do I?

And yes you will need a secondary clutch for it to work.
