I mean i probably could've, but you know there's a +$20 premium for anything that's brass. Besides, the hard part is just not breaking off the drill. Besides that it's just a thread, some turning, and cutting a screwdriver slot with a hacksaw.

Symptom occured when modding the breather? - is the hose smooth on the inside or smooth enough.

No it did it with the previous stock air box. The hose is.kind of corrugated, I'm not sure how to describe it. The hose that comes with cheap backyard above ground pools.

Not dead, yet!

I put a thing on to help stop my foot from sliding off the clutch

Rolled mutt in the shop today. I'm tired of fighting to make this engine run well, i think it's just clapped. Low compression, bad valves, weird carb issues. Smokes a lot. Just a pain.

Honestly, if i had a good vanny I'd go to it in a heartbeat. But i don't, so my next best option is an oppy with few shared parts- and hopefully few shared problems.

So it's back to the 20hp oppy that was once on her. I have another of the same engine with the governor still on it that I'll take the intake and carb off of, just to be sure. The only thing major that's being swapped over is the other starter onto this one.

That's as far as i got tonight, feeling a bit tired.

Put the 20hp back together and in, still some stuff to hook up but i got to see if it runs.

aaaaaand it does, but won't idle. I imagine it would surge if it were governed. Go figure, this is a 3 screw with fixed jets. I've not been able to get either of those i have to run well either.

For those that don't know, a fixed idle jet on a 3 screw replaces the screw with a screw in sort of jet. A normal needle screws in but I'm not sure if all the internal geometries are the same, though i got this to idle just by replacing it. The carb is probably still dirty so I'll look into that again.

Carb stuff is only complicated because of Al Gore. Environmentalists are lame when they're only taking political action. Although any ideology is lame if no one is actually willing to step up and get some attention and results. I mean, take a look at Ted K. Rad guy. Only environmentalist worth caring about.
