    Simple. Just set it in the back and adapt an electric motor to the transmission. You might want to refer to some Red Green episodes.

              Love the Red Green show! Whatta hoot!

              Seriously tho, I have been told by many old-timers, No, do NOT use an industrial engine for an automotive application.

              The reason is that industrial engines are designed to run at a single, low RPM for extended periods of time. Auto engines are designed to run at variable RPM's. An industrial engine will blow up from the revs during acceleration.

              I could be wrong, but thats what I've heard from many an old industrial mechanic. I did a Google on it and found nothing.

                  Convert an old Jeep to electric and rebuild the generator to recharge the batteries! I'd love to do that myself!
