Re: Good, two stroke motor kit.
My engine also came from Duane at Dax. Gen IV.
Taking a look at it I saw it had no head gasket installed. Hm. Then I checked the deck height of the piston, looked at the mating surfaces between the cyl and head, they looked carefully machined.
Put it on the bicycle and it has about 200 miles on it now. This engine has never so much as seeped fumes around the head or exhaust port, or the cylinder to case.
Bone dry. nothing to wipe off.
This was a new expeerience for me, I'd worked on a couple of these before and they all seemed to leak just a bit.
It runs real smooth and starts right up. It's a very good little engine.
I'd buy another one with no qualms at all.
