Petrol engine Toylander kids ride on tot rod series 2 landrover
Here i have for sale my sons series 2 petrol engined landrover toylander, i built this toylander over a 2 year period when i started out i wanted to build a toylander and i wanted it to have a petrol engine under the bonnet where it belonged with key start and reverse gear, i used a 8 hp briggs and stratton engine from a ride on mower and a 5 speed tecumseh trans axle from another mower i also have a spare 8 hp briggs and stratton engine to go with the sale as these are getting quite rare i found another engine and kept it just in case. Where do i start there is so much to list, this toylander was built to the plans from Toylander until the point of fitting the petrol engine the 8hp vertical shaft engine is mounted under the bonnet with a go kart Clutch fitted, the clutch could do with the harder springs fitting as this would make gear selecting easier, it is then belt driven to the 5 speed transaxle this is mounted under the seat, it has 5 forward gears and reverse gear it is quite slow as this was for my son when he was 3 but easily changeable with changing the pully sizes. The front bumper is sprung loaded with micro switches that if the car crashes it will automatically cut the engine out, the steering on the toylanders is very sharp so on this one i have fitted a chain system to gear it down so it has much better steering. I have fitted a motorcycle alarm/immobiliser this can cut the vehicle out remotely so if your child is riding it and you feel they are going to crash you can cut the engine out from the key-fob you can also start it from the key-fob.
I built i full chassis on this for 2 reasons one the additional strength for having a petrol engine and also allowing me to have opening doors by the plans the toylanders do not have opening doors. This toylander will require a new battery as the battery is no longer holding a charge but i would put jump leads on to show all the alarm remote start features it can also be started with the pull start.
I have lots and lots of photos of this during and after the build any questions please ask and i will be happy to answer. There is probably lots i have forgotten to mention this really is a one of a kind toylander build. Some of the images are old images the first image is when it was last out at a fate the steering wheel it has now is the metal one. Due to size collection only from norwich Norfolk and viewing is highly recommended this really has to be seen in person to appreciate its true beauty.
