Pretty good actually. Sometimes you hit the Goldilocks speed or deceleration and they get bumpy but besides that they're mint

That doesn't look good.  Hope it's not too bad.

Fun fact, she will sit up on 3 wheels if you lock the front axle. Anyways I did get the trans back in and the shifter issues fixed, it's all nice and tight now.


First real upgrade in several months, put in an ammeter today. Noticed she doesn't charge much at idle, but when you wind her up the needle jumps up some. Although maybe that's because the battery is charged for once.

Accidentally rolled Mutt over today and she dumped oil out of the air cleaner from the PCV. Started right back up and smoked a ton, surprised she didn't foul the plugs and quit. Oil all over the place.

Made a main jet needle in machine tool. 40tpi is absolutely horrendous to cut. It's not done in this pic but yeah. Anyways it works but i can never get it to stop blowing black smoke on acceleration.


I got fed up with how terrible the throttle response is on this thing so i pulled the heads and valves off and gave this thing the Dremel treatment. Only got a pic of the eyebrows on the one side. Used a radial file so it kind of turned out to a tumble finish but it's not that bad.


To get the valves out i ended up making my own valve spring compressor out of some pliers and steel. Put a hose clamp on the handle to hold the spring, was actually pretty handy. Not as nice as the real tool though.

I usually use zip ties to get the valve springs off and on, works pretty well, and I don't have to buy a $30 tool I'm only going to use once in a blue moon and when I need it it's going to be lost, lol.

That's just a little bit too janky for me lol.

She does seem to breathe a bit better with the mods but the carb is still disagreeable lol

LOL I'm not sure I get the difference in the level of redneckery of using zip ties compared to welding metal to pliers.

why not getting a Briggs Intek Double Barrel Carb? U just need to build a homemade intake manifold, since your Engine runs ungoverned.

Carb

I have more faith in my welds than some nylon zap straps

If I'm going aftermarket carbs on this I'm going dual mic vm30s or something. Maybe just regular walbro 28 on a horizontal intake idk it's been done

It will be really difficult to get the throttle rigged up so both carbs give the exact same amount of Fuel Air Mixture into each cylinder. With the Dual Barrel U had that problem solved! But U have a AAS which sucks!

Actually Mr.mod did dual Teccy carbs on the oppy in his GTR 4 Zero and it worked pretty good for him. Probably not really that difficult to pull it off.

That's going to be a great drum once you get it welded up.  How are you going to anchor the first wrap of cable on the drum?  I think the easiest thing to do would be to just drill a hole the diameter of the cable on an angle and insert it into that, then spool the cable onto the drum.

I thought you was making it a 4 wheel drive, LOL. I seen it on Sprockets Garage and you only had the one pic and it looked like there was CV axles on it already.
