Lubrication. By constant circulation of a gallon (4,5 liters) of oil from a separate reserve tank. The circulation pressure being attained from crankcase compression , and controlled by a float. (see oil ball float return valve).
Cooling. Two aluminium fans mounted one on each end of a cross shaft, running on ball bearings lubricated from a turn grease cup. This system draws air into the hood circulating around the engine, ensuring cooling. this system was tested in extreme high temperatures and proved effective.
Starting. By crank.
Air filter/Cleaner. Oil soaked metallic element.
Gears. The three speed gear box is built within the engine.
Reverse. All three speeds are available in reverse. The application of reverse gear lifts the plow out of the ground. This is also used for maneuvering the motoculteur.

Hitch. All implements are attached to a swinging drawbar by means of a single pin. A patented devise allows the plough to work outside the motoculteurs width, maintaining the draught from the centre of the motoculteur.
Plowing depth. Up to 12 ins (30,48cms) dependent upon soil conditions.
Fuel consumption. Four hours per gallon of petrol. or 1 hour per 1,25 to 1,5 liters of fuel. the tank holds approx. 9 liters.

Here is a Energic motoculteur D9 motobecane S bloc fitted to a motocycle after internal gearing has been changed. Yes it can be done, but you need to manufacturer certain parts. The owner of this motocycle ironically said that they wished they had kept the motoculteur!
