Wait, I don;t know if you guys are talking about newer flatheads or what. Because if it had a spring mechanism I wouldn't have done it. Mine has no way of changing the cam timing. And this...

**** no. That little 125cc, geared for max power and speed balance, could maybe touch 50 mph. And I wouldn't get hopeful for over 70 with the 250.

Yeah I had one that had a little bit of rust on the insulator which was actually shorting the plug out because the spark was jumping from the boot onto the rust. I wiped it off and it was better....

New little engine project!

I acquired a 3hp briggs today, appears to be from the 50's or 60's. It looks just like any other 3hp briggs (actually it may be 2hp now that I think about it) except it's rope start. Anyways, there...
