Seeing how there is very little of the old Johnson left in the dog, I'll start a new post.
The track and suspension and drive cogs are a major part of the dog it is little of the snowmobile.


As we can see I reshaped the track so both ends are elevated off the ground. The front is to clime over obstacles, the back so I can lift the front some to help turn it. That the plan in my mind anyway.

I had to "Beef" up the springs on the bogies, as I added iron it squatted down to low.

I have the frame for the "Deck" where the Motor will mount and have some storage on the dog.

Still have to design the hitch point and some how attach handle bars.

What do you estimate the weight to be?

Will it climb a ramp into the bed of a pick-up?

Will it have a reverse?

Looking very good.

Wing
 I ordered a torque converter clutch drive like a snowmobile only smaller which is belt but then it has a sprocket from there to chain to the track.
Bear 
so far its under 200 pounds, I think, and the motor is 77 pounds.
I'm hoping it will be around 320.
 I hope it will clime a ramp it has carbide steel cleats acros the track every 3 inches or so.
I'm going to load it on to a bumper buddy on the back of the truck, so it is only like two feet off the ground.
The ramp will go on either side of the buddy so I can drive on and drive off no reverse.

You do like that "drive on drive off" style.   Very good idea.   reminds me of the trailer for the airboat!!

I hung it to check the weight. So far 172 Pounds.
Looks like I'll be close to the 350 mark.
Motor is shipped could be here by the 6th.Big smile

Centrifugal clutch yes but not from the Johnson.
The problem with the airboat was it did not turn fast enough to make it work. This is one made to turn at slower RPM. I could not get one for the VW motor to much HP for the smaller clutches. 
Hope it works I'm at the very top of it's rating for HP.

It does not look like much change, but I think the Truck is finished.
It seams quite substantial, no wiggle to it.
I have shafts, sprockets, pillow bearings, and chain ordered.
I hope I got the ratios right. If it only goes 17 mph not the 20 as by bench mark, will be fine too.
Picks are front, back and both sides.
I did not want to make mounts till I see where the other stuff has to be.

Gota be able to steer this crazy thing.
I plan to put it sideways on a bumper buddy on the truck to transport it. It can only be as long as the truck is wide. I'm making the handle to fold up over the top or come off and set on top, and the trailer or sled on top of that. here is what I have so for.
