I decided to ditch my full suspension build for awhile i rather concentrate on tricking out my trike.. so i figured out how i was gonna mount the engine and where the radiator is going.

Pulled the jug off and re-tapped the exhaust stud holes to 1/4-20's.
Got some cap head bolts, and new washers at home depot.

De-carbonized the piston and head, and got a little discouraged with the
sloppy side to side play in the connecting rod and wrist pin.

Replaced fuel filter, fuel petcock, fuel lines.
1/4" rubber fuel lines, and a Fram F-1 inline filter came to less than 5 bucks
at the auto supply store.

Fuel petcock from Graingers with barbed hose fitting
came to 8 bucks. Fuel flow to the carb gushes now instead of a drippy trickle
with the stock valve.

Re-jetted carb a tad richer

The sun finally came out about 4 o'clock so I went out and ran the snot out of it.....

Fixing it up ain't half as fun as riding it....

Mark,
Here's the valve:
Mini Ball Valve Kit, 1/8 In NPT M x F - Ball Valves - Valves - Plumbing : Grainger Industrial Supply

Here's the barbed fitting that threads into valve:http://www.grainger.com/Grainger/Hos...FH3?Pid=search

Pages of barbed fittings starts here:
Search barbed brass fittings - Grainger Industrial Supply

The valve is well made, comes with 3 different style handles.

I think my barbed fitting had 5 or 6 barbs which was really long.
I cut it down to 2 or 3 barbs to shorten it to make the abrupt turn into my large see thru filter:

FRAM G1 Fuel Filter on eBay!

I like to know when I'm running out of gas. This filter when it's full will take me at least a mile, when it looks less than full I check my tank immediately.
I just look down every now and then while i'm getting low..

today i finished up the motor i was installing for the homeless guy, and as soon as i was putting fuel in it he walked up with 150 bucks.

the bike started first try, and he was on his way.

i seriously can't believe he panhandled 150 bucks in one night. screw trying to sell bikes, i'm just gonna go stand out in front of the liquor store all day...

Well I went for a ride today and wouldn't you know it, My brand new CNS carb. broke right off the mount. (gasps) I know what you are all thinking "HOW? when these carbs. are made so well". He He He. Oh well you get what you pay for.(says the man who opted to pay more for the better carb) So here I am broke like my new carb. no way to replace it and my only mode of transportation is down. Well time for some redneck engineering! So I went and found an old set of handlebars hacked off a piece and broke out the JB Weld. made a couple slits in the tube and clamped her in place. I will post pics once the weld cures and sets. I'll let y'all know how she runs then too. Crazy part of all this I was just about to respond to all the negative comments about how BAD these carbs are cause mine was running like a champ. Well I'll post some pics tomorrow hopefully.

Oh if by some chance someone has a spare NT carb or maybe a Speed carb you can sell or part with lemme know please. Thanks.

Happy Easter Everybody!
