    Welcome.

    The good thing about your Manco is it uses very common parts, not manufacturer specific parts like Honda, Kawasaki, Yamaha, etc.

    In a word, industrial.

    Other than the bodywork, most parts you can find from companies like Grainger, and even the local hardware store.https://www.grainger.com/content/general-catalog

    The best part is the engine, because you can easily replace it with something like a new, inexpensive one from Harbor Freight. It would probably be an upgrade too, yours likely still having a side valve engine.

    Here's a YouTube video of someone who put a newer engine in. It's just one example. There are others.

    Thanks guys. That you tube video looks like what I want to do. If I want to start a thread about that where would I post it? I have questions about the torque converter configuration that he is using. It looks like he was able to put his driven pulls right on the jack shaft and eliminate one section of chain.

    You can start a new thread here: http://www.3wheelerworld.com/forumdi...-Trikesylvania

    Be patient waiting for answers. There are some long time members who seldom post, but if they catch you're thread, may have some good info they want to contribute.
