Cool Re: Hello from Florida!!

I'm back with good news and more good news. The starting problem turned out to be a faulty magneto. It started right up and after some initial tweaking, it runs great, I'm happy say. I then installed my slant head. It gave it significant power. I did have a slight problem with piston slap, that I solved with a combo of using gasket material from the auto parts store sandwiched in between aluminium roofing flashing. I may have used to much gasket material, reducing my compression more than I should have. I may reduce the thickness at a later date, however, over all, it still has more power. Check out the pix. I have an exhaust system I will install when I have a larger block of time, but tonight, good news, bad news, I need to fix a flat on the rear tire, and I will take this time to install the 36 tooth sproket seen in the pic. A report will follow.
