I’ve been doing some research and I’m thinking about building my own 8-10gpm motor/pump setup powered by a 22 HP Predator motor. Harbor freight has a really good “replace not repair” warranty on these motors and I’ve read where folks have had really good luck with these motors. I’m decent mechanically but no expert.
Have any of you guys set up your own “big motor”. Did you use a poly chain, gearbox, or belt to mate it to the pump? I’ve pretty much decided on running the tsf2021 pump.
What are your thoughts or advice? If any of y’all have a similar set up I’d love to see pics. Thanks. Here is a link for the predator motor. They’re modeled off the Honda. The reason I’m exploring this option is obviously to save money but to also to gain knowledge about how these motors work and how to work on them.
