With a VM22-133, I ended up with a 130 jet on the modded hemi motor. I would start there for your build & see if it needs more fuel or less fuel, but that should be fairly close. With the VM22...

If you set the catch can above the valve cover & have a breather, it can drain back into the engine if it fills up.

I don't think you'll see high temps until it's wound out pretty tight & pulling for some amount of time.

I did a series of runs to dial in the main jet on a stretch of road at WOT (it's a rural...

If it's a cheap Chikuni, you might try main jets. If it's running at 3/4-full throttle, you need to do the main jet first, not the needle.

I didn't have much luck with the cheaper VM22, so I went...

The 212 motor & TAV is a good combination on a Warrior. If you do an air box removal (K&N type filter), exhaust header, timing key for advance, thinner head gasket & re-jet the carb it will make a...

Try a 36 jet. Did you clean the idle jet? It sits under the black plastic screw head, it's a small jet you have to pop out after removing the screw, very fine wire to clean & make it idle properly.

The original was a VM22-3487, the replacement is a VM22-133. I drilled the main jet to about a 170 size (#46 drill bit, .080") & it's running pretty well, but I'm still waiting to get real jets...

VM22-133 is a better choice, it's running now. Need to tune, but it's working well enough finally.

Checked float height & it was off about 1mm, but that's all so no real fix there.

I agree with starvation, it's a gravity feed from the factory tank, but I think there should be enough fuel flowing to at least start to go past 1/4 throttle before it runs out of fuel in the bowl....

Yep, give the TAV a shot to see how it works. Keep an eye on things when you launch. It might wear out fast or snap something, but a jackshaft setup will not break if it's set up to run properly. ...

With a 6.5 hp predator & governor attached (if it's at 3600 rpm) you would need a final drive of 3.84:1 to get you there with a tav (with the 10% overdrive figured in at WOT) & 13" tires.

Just make sure you check it with the side cover in place as well, to make sure it's still not hitting anything. If you have about .050"-.060" to be safe, it should be fine & looks like it's there...
