if it has the metal carb , get rid of it and put a good novarossi carb one on it ! the metal carbs that come with the bf engines leak horribly . needles should be closer to 3-3 1/2 hsn, 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 lsn , idle open 1-1.5mm, 8mm restrictor . pm me if you need a carb , i have about 30 of em .
happy motoring ,
monty

MAN these engines rip. It still baffles me that these three ports perform as well as they do. Mine is stock, unmodded, going on 5 gallons, and I just replaced the con-rod. This bugger will always be in my arsenal I think. It tunes well, idles well, and flat works in my 8ight.
