Unhappy Re: A better gas tank

I got the tank mounted in good shape. Tonignt I pulled the engine and found a hole in the aircleaner housing which means it sucked dust for awhile. I took the governor stuff apart and put in a box. My next move was to spill the contents on the shop floor. I don't think I will ever see all the pieces again and if I did, not sure if I could get it back together. GOOD ! Now I am looking at the carburator and wondering if I have a piston-type carb in the shed that could replace it and let it breath better. That will mean a cable/drum twist throttle. I guess tomarrow I start machining more magnesium making carb adapter and aircleaner fitting. I checked Fastenal for the shoulder bolts I need for the spring fork I have been building. They figure four of them are worth $26 ! At that, they didn't have the length shoulder I need. That means I cut short pieces of 1/2" stainless tubing for the spacers
