8 minutes of Brazilian single-cylinder lunacy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mV5HMnR3CtE

Just goes to show how versatile these little horizontal single-bangers are...
Cheers!

Clearly, in Brazil they have the clutch thing Figured out!

I definitely want a walking tractor now. Those things are awesome!

At about 1:07 you can see the flywheel. Looks in the right position so I would say the thing has the original clutch.
Earlier in the vid you can see the manual shift lever and the clutch pedal which looks the right height.


Ah ! yes....I see that now. Good eye !

You know, rednecks are all over the world, and I don't think it's a bad thing at all!

On the clutch thing, you could remove half of the springs in the pressure plate and still have more than enough clutch for the horsepower.
Cuts way down on the thrust pressure. My 69 International cub loboy has the clutch and pressure plate mounted on the tranny, driven from the engine mounted flywheel via a driveshaft, and only 3 one inch or so coil springs in the pressure plate. Oh and the clutch disk is about 6 inches in diameter.
