For some dumb reason there is a youtube trend going around of people putting those Harbor Freight Predator engines in everything "just because". Watched one a few months ago of a kid who put one in an old Dodge D-50 (or maybe a Mitsubishi) compact pickup. It work, drove around turned and stopped. However the jackshaft and everything else needed to make it work just don't make sense, when you consider the level of effort.
