It's a newer lister AC-1, if you click on the link in my signature, there's pictures of the build.
i really like what you did with that build the lower center of gravity is a nice idea.
im thinking about trying to add another flywheel under slung to take advantage of the extra power.

finely got around to replacing the old engine on my super splitter and in keeping with the them of MORE is better i uped the power a teeny bit. my experience is that the 16:1 reduction powers through a lot after the flywheels have unloaded there juice.

i ran some knotty old apple crotches that i had put to the side because of the odd shapes and sizes. the extra power really is nice to have. once the initial hit is spent the 16:1 reduction dogs the motor a little and it jest powers through the tough bits.
