    S&S Evo in a Shovel frame

    Has anyone done an Evo in a shovel frame. I'm about to attempt it, but would like to know how much Evo i'm getting into. What frame mods, if any, that I need to do and if the primary parts match up. Any help or advice ( other than are you nuts) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, squirl

    Re: S&S Evo in a Shovel frame

    Are you nuts? Sorry, had to say it anyway. I think the Evolutions are too tall, you would probably have to re-work the back-bone. Motor mounts are different, Evo's are rubber mount. By primary parts, what exactly are you reffering to?

    Don't force it, get a bigger hammer.

    Re: S&S Evo in a Shovel frame

    Sorry, I need to take better measurements. I re-measured and found that I need about 2" to squeeze the EVO into the frame, so I will probably abandone this idea. Looks like it will be easier to get the hop up kit from J-P and stroke my shovel, keeping the same attitude on the frame. Thanks for the info and ideas, guess I'll save the S&S for a different project. Squirl

    Sounds like a plan Squirl... They got, or can get you some pretty good kits here at J&P... If you don't see anything here that you like, call tech, they can order something in for you... S&S is always a good choice, I don't like Revtech... Keep us posted on your build, this is interesting...Let us know if you need any help.
