One overarching problem is that the term "billet" is widely abused for marketing purposes to imply a superior material. It capitalizes on consumer ignorance of what a billet is and is not

"Billet"...

Spark ignition industrial engines often don't have more than two valves because they won't benefit from four and it's cheaper to make two. Lighter valves and big ports don't help an engine that...

What I know about porting a hemi Predator I only know from others, but it seems to have a bad short turn that benefits from addition of material to help air swing around the bend. It doesn't seem to...

It depends on the volume, pressure, and compressor efficiency. 30cfm is about 20hp worth of air and at 15psi it would require at least 1.5hp from the crank. In other words, the engine makes 20hp and...

The 140 and 160 stroke is the same, but the 140 has a smaller flywheel taper. The 140 crank is also cast instead of forged. As best I as I can tell, a forged 160 crank will fit in a 140. A GX200 or...

It would be perfect but you haven't tried it? :huh:

I was trying to wrangle a sealed drum of nitro that wouldn't cost me anything but the 300mi drive to pick it up. Unfortunately the ownership is contested and it's probably not going to happen. It's...

1.) The ignition system is in better condition, has better parts, or is better adjusted.
2.) No.

I had one once and wish I still did. You can kinda tell by looking at it if you could make it work on a kart, right?

It's going to have at least a 1" shaft and a large mounting pattern, possibly...

What voltage does the camera need?

I'd find out what kind of current it pulls first. Constantly transmitting video over WiFi is going to use a lot of juice. It would help a lot if the camera has...

None. With a stock rod and flywheel, all the heavy springs will do is make the engine easier to blow up.

I think fuel pooling will be an issue with a plenum between the turbo and engine. The Hansen kart supercharger kit used a plenum that had a very unique shape, I assume to prevent fuel problems. You...

It sounds like there is still air in the system. Try taking the caliper off and raising it above the master cylinder when bleeding. That's a pretty common thing to do with bike brakes.

What do you mean they aren't working well? Spongy feel, good feel with poor stopping, etc?



Do you mean "new" as in brand-new, or new as in "used, but new to you?"

Silencer(muffler), no, but if you want an expansion chamber(pipe) that fits in a kart, then I'd say yes.

How many watts do you anticipate from the panel? It would take a pretty large one to deliver even 100W, which is 0.9% of that motor's capacity.

Do you plan to charge an onboard battery while also...

The one with four bolts on the head looks like an '89+ Suzuki RM80. The one with five head bolts appears to be a '90s Honda CR125 and is missing at least part of the power valve linkage.

I *think* the pickup might work better on the rear of the engine. The crankshaft and is going to be sweeping oil away from the front one.
