Can you swap a vt500 Shadow motor to the ascot?
« on: December 11, 2018, 02:15:25 pm »
My engine is just a whole lot of trouble and am trying to find an appropriate motor to swap. Any suggestions? Reason I thought the shadow motor would be good is because they are plentiful but have never done a full motor swap before so it might be silly of me to suggest that so I apologize for my ignorance on the subject. Initially wanted to swap an XT500 Engine on but can't find any anywhere.

Which Ascot are you asking about? FT or VT?

A VT500 Shadow engine should swap into a VT500FT Ascot of the same years.

The VT500 Shadow engine will NOT swap into the FT500 Ascot.
