I'm all for gathering data, but why test the governor gear with no weights? I can't think of a reason to use the gear without them and it's more work than just removing the whole thing. :confused:

If it's quality chain, yes.

Yeah, it's a four-piece assembly much like the seal in a water pump. They began to get phased out in the '80s in favor of dynamic seals, which are more like a piston ring and have lower drag....

It is going to burn a lot of oil with the draw-though carburetor. Vacuum is going to pull it past the compressor seal when the throttle is not fully open.



A BOV will serve no purpose with a...

That thing under the tank is a breather. My engine has journal bearings on both ends. I don't know that this engine came with a ball bearing option, although I've entertained the thought of making a...

The "14" means 14 cubic inch displacement. It's 5 or 6hp AFAIK. It has a 2.625" bore and stroke, points actuated by the cam, magneto separate from the flywheel, connecting rod a mile long, solid...

Most of the scam alerts are from the just last month and I found some from the last couple days. They're probably stealing credit card info.

Like I said, something isn't right. :cool:

Something isn't right.

1.) The e-store is poorly set up and deals mostly in rugs of all things, not power equipment.
2.) The engine can not be found by browsing their products nor searching for...

The crank is most likely short and splined if the reduction box has no clutch.

If the spline is by some chance 25mm x 13, then a wide range of motorcycle sprockets would slip onto it.

Straight-through mufflers like that are usually still loud. They generally take out the harsh pop, but leave the booming low tones and those are what can be heard most at long distances.

Are you still using the stock tank on top of the engine? What fuel?

I imagine a 30lb muffler that's larger than the engine would quiet things down. :roflol:

I think it would have to be an incredibly competitive class for your own body' aero drag to cost a win.

What do you anticipate top speeds to be?

Swap the engine and seat positions and it would sort of resemble a Chassis Research front-engine dragster.

Because that's what your top end ratio should be closer to, not your takeoff ratio. You have to prioritize the top end ratio (3.1:1 in this case) because that will be limited by the engine's power....

That's why it doesn't make sense that the plug is sooty. You've done mods that should make it run leaner and it's still on the stock jets, so it should be running lean. If it was rich to begin with,...

With cracks like that, the tires should be replaced.

It looks like an oval chassis. I can't make heads or tails of what all the electrical is for.
