OPPS. just chopped up one, EGT 200. would not have been able to aford to re-battery the thing. I would like some info about the transmission as to weather there is a reverse gear cluster that can be obtained for this as this machine had a reversing drive motor in it, there seems to be an emty slot in the shift pattern, posibly for a reverse gear. Our itention is to put an old engine on the chassis (IHC 3hp) for the show cercuit. If it works out, it will sure beat walking. lol.

My Dad Has 2 General Electic Ones. I Believe They May Be The From The Same Manufacture. They Have Peerless Rearends In Them. They Do Not Have The Reverse Gear Cluster In Them.

Kevin;
GE developed them & sold tem for several years before deciding to get out of the business. Sold the rights to New Idea and they built them for a while before deciding they were too expensive to continue.
