I have taken out the rear axle for a good cleaning because it was leaking out the side. Should I lock it or leave it unlocked? I am going to run a 4" front to 3" back so it goes 25mph.
Also I am porting and polishing the head and lapping the valves because of all the times I've overheated this thing because of carb problems.

Lock it, and why not go a lil bigger like 5-4 or 6-5 for less slippage? We do have a lotta water here in Florida and a 4-3 pulley ratio won't help you get through it.

I want to go with bigger pulleys but I don't want to buy any more pulleys or belts. I've gone up to the seat with water without slipping as long as I leave it in 3rd gear so I think I'll be fine with slipping. But if I run into a little extra money while building up the engine I will get bigger ones.

Yeah most if my money is in building my buggy and fixing my atv. So I have very little left and I don't want to spend it unless I have to.

Good news is I got my valves lapped and polished my head and it feels like it has a lot more pressure when I turn the engine over by hand. Bad news is I broke one of the bolts for valve adjustment so I can't fire it up yet. Thankfully k2500life has spare parts so I can get it running soon.
