Right you are, Carlos.
It's a Honda Gx160. He had a Gx200 in it at one time and it pull to over 60mph!
He wanted to back it off a little.

On Predators the gas tank mounting ears are horizontal (flat) not on an Angle like the Honda.
Dave is right........it was a Honda 160.
Doug uses a different gearing theory than most.

Car is going too fast?
A driver's solution: Go easy on the throttle, lift, brake earlier.
A builder's solution: Pull off the engine, replace it, and modify something else while at it. grinning smiley

Can someone clarify what's going on with the drivetrain set up on that Bloody Mary? I'm confused. It looks like it would solve a lot of problems I'm having dimension-ally, but see no torque converter. Is he using a cent clutch or manual clutch?

He has a Torque converter (I think a Max Torque), just not an "all in one piece" style Comet.
He uses a separate jack shaft, as lots do.
