Yep, my posts there pretty much show it. The hose runs up to right under the seat, where it has a little fuel filter to halt the ingress of dust. Although now that I've had her up to the fenders, i might run a longer hose to the intake...

I'd still rebuild the 20 because it sounded really cool, and might make a difference.

Probably just stuff like bored out and oversized pistons to get to 50 cubes, smog pump supercharger, extensive block and head work to increase comression and fuel/air flow, aggressive cam, fins shaved off the flywheel with custom water cooled setup, twin carbs and custom manifolds for each one....




Or, maybe just a set of compression rings and some gaskets. lol!

Man, that looks pretty slick Rich! The way it contours to the foot boards is pretty cool. How's she sound?

Sounds nice. Just drove er to put her away for the night. Good and throaty, not so sharp on the ears.

It's not even done yet. Gonna go up over the axle and out the back, this is just what i had time for tonight.

Ha! I have that the Murray out on someone else's land almost a week now! Of course nobody can get to it as it is behind a huge body of water and surrounded on all side by deep mud and water , so there's not a chance of somebody stumbling onto it. But if they took it only think I would miss would be my nice thermos I left strapped on it. Sent me those itp mud lites rich. I will buy them from you. Always need more tires

Eh, no need lol.

I might wrap this exhaust, that'd be cool.

Also i gotta weld a washer on my support to keep the pipe off my brake linkage

Mutt made a successful road trip to a local auction, but i noticed she was running really fat, probably due to the snorkel and longer exhaust. Gonna have to do something with that.

Homemade smog pump supercharger setup would fix that most likely. Haha, just kidding. Does your carb have an adjustable idle and main jet?
