Carl. did you purchase the new cooling heads for it? Have you notice a drop in temp with the fuel you use? I was running byrons and my temps were high and since the switch in fuel, I am surprise in the drop in temps. Do you run 30%? If so, did you add a shim?

I think it is a great engine. I need to seal my engine. I think I might have a small leak near the carb, but I think you need to do that with any engine. You cannot go wrong with OS.

I am running 25%.

Found my problem the darn flywheel moved. The collet is just not grabbing at all. I put a bunch more shims behind the collet to get more bite, and I also ran another shim prior to putting on the screw that holds the whole assembly together. Didn't get a lock up issue when I fired it up a few times yesterday.

Will try it again today around the house since my younger daughter is not feeling well.

Jason,

Seriously I locktited it really well. The nut actually was a real pain to remove as it was so locked. But looking at the whole assembly, it was as if the flywheel was up too far so the nut was barely touching everything to lock it down.

I hope to test it again today and make sure that it stays.

I am going to check again here after my next run and see, not sure if I got fuel there by accident or its a leak.

what is the process to remove that bearing if you need to?

My bearings seem to be fine, and the cooling head is working well. It does take standard plugs. This is the one I got:

My last run when really well guys. Car ran great pretty much all day. Have a slight idle issue but that I think is more of a tune thing. I was going about it the right way till I actually messed with the actual idle screw.

My day only came to an end when the pilot screw that holds the whole clutch assembly together came loose.

Great engine.
