Completely off topic but just as a heads up my honda gx has a 1 1/8 shaft so I ended up getting one of those split tapered deals. Didnt know if I was gonna like it but tbh I'd put them suckers on everything. Idk what ever works for you.

I got a pulley and hub from TSC for this one. I know those split taper ones are better but i haven't come across one yet so I haven't used one.

You just reminded me, I'm gonna gave to deal with the taper on the trans input shaft when i pulley swap it. Grr.

Oooof my honda came off a generator so the shaft was tapered so my dad machined a sleeve that would slide over the tapered shaft to make it straight. I'm sure you could do the same......maybe idk what those shafts look like.

I think a cool heat shield is due for this exhaust. If only i had some expanded stainless or something. That would be awesome.

I bet that sucker sounds good.....you should drive it to a bar and park next to the harley guys and just rev the heck out of it. Then just get up and walk in like you own the place Cool

It doesn't sound great. Mostly because the carb is missing an O ring so it runs fat. It's not as loud as i thought it would be though. Will be nice with a resonation chamber.

Oooof I was hoping for something that shrieks....I guess it is just a lawnmower engine. The header looks good Craftsman GT6K - Page 4 2731072446 looks pretty slick running them together like that.

It'll sound better when i get the rebuild kit for the carb. Although all it needs is the one O ring around the jet. It'll rip then.

What would cause this thing to run really fat, fire oddly, and just not run smoothly in general? It always starts super easy, on the first few turns, but it just doesn't run right. There's a missing O ring on a jet but I don't think that would cause a problem this severe. There's something weird going on with it.

Oh yeah and im working on a foot throttle. My friend gave me this cool one so I'm trying to use it.
