Yup, i have the same carb but its off a 16hp oppsed for my opposed. Its pre-EPA (first gen or close to opposed engine) and they have adjustable main jets. im not sure if they sell one for your single.

Hopefully I didn't sound too sarcastic. I think this is an awesome idea and I can't wait to see how it works!  Smile  Can you give us a reading from fully warmed up and idling -to- right after a good romp?

it runs fine and it was 30 degres outside so it will run hotter in the summer.1997 Murray widebody trail mower - Page 2 Icon_eek stock it would run way hotter cause it wouldn't have as much air going over the fins to cool it off. thanks for the compliment Ariens!

oh, I did a pulley swap so it goes 3 times faster than stock, so more air is going over the cooling fins.

That doesn't make any sense.  Pulley swaps affect how the trans spins, not the motor..

the mower is going faster than before, so there is more air cooling the engine.
