I got it on Ebay. I typed in Mikuni and BANG right there. I'd try replacing the diaphragm for now, because downtime sucks. :p

Well I accepted the clone ( a long time ago) and now my TAV just came. So I'ma go put that on and maybe make a video after I'm done.

Nevermind about the clone and TAV combo. Way too much cutting for what I want to do. So I'm working on my briggys. I'm painting the engine a cool Blue hue. Looks decent. Not the best. Also I am waiting on some parts to get here so I can begin assembly. Until then I will paint!

I am going to trade my grandpa my clone for his old briggs. Mostly because it runs like terrible and this new engine would be easier for him to start on his tiller and burns less fuel. I think I'ma steal his tiller while he's not home and put the clone on it and put it back. See if he notices. Which he'll probably notice about 1 minute and 30 seconds after he is home. Because he will want to look at his garden where the tiller sits.

Here is some pictures of my odd paint job. Nothing is bolted down yet. Need to shim the sprocket over a bit.

Flat Heads FTW. The paint is Dupli Colour match-to-brand touch up paint. Its around $7-8 a can though but looks awsome. My go kart spindles and steering shaft are painted with it. It takes time and quite a bit of coats though.

I got them at MFGSupply.com. I really enjoy them over the small "10 wheels. I go much much fast now! (Not really a good thing with me!)

Is where I bought mine. I can save you ALOT of money on the tires. I have some from the kit that I didn't like. I would buy a 60 tooth sprocket though. I will even send you the chain guard and bracket for free.

Tank is fugly isn't it? hehe I'm working on getting a prettier one.

I decided last night that the low speed circuit was too rich. Carbon on the plug. Bleh. So I found a #25 pilot to replace the #30 pilot. OMG I did a wheelie when I pinned the throttle! New life!!!! I'm wonding if I could use even a smaller jet. I couldn't ride it much as the floats need adjusting again...I hate floats... Tonight I will try again.

Lets race! I raced my friend on a Honda Rancher. I beat him in the low end but around 40 mph he passed me.
