I am attemping to build a Northstar powered trike , with 99 engine, S-10 2.8 700r4 trans, and Lincoln Mk VIII irs, with my own a-arms. i have modded the trans and will use a 4x4 out put and no tail housing, since speedo will run off of front wheel. i have a wiring harness and pcm, but not sure what year. Two motors and w/h were gave to me and I just want to run the motor. Could use the help and ideas of any that are interested.

I think I would keep the transverse setup and run that instead to be honest, it should be a lot more compact.

Did you see the one in Hot Rod magazine?

97 Eldo.....why take the easy way out and I like to build with what I have .....most of the parts have been free and I don't want it to be a transverse motor.......thanks anyway.

zonie ....no .....There have been a lot of issues of Hot Rod, which issue.........I have seen most of the N* trikes and I don't want to have a fiberglass bodied barge, like things more mechanical, and just like to build things.
Here is a mock up picture......Vette IRS, but will use Lincoln Mk VIII, to be able to build a narrow tube frame.

Feb 2010, new issue, pages 24-30. Not exactly what you are building but you will be interested.

Looks like a good project.
