The way I figure it 35 will be a good speed to be able to hit with out having to over rev the engine to do it. That gives me room for losses in slippage and other factors not taken into the calculations.

Yeah drac, there's always something ya didn't plan for. Like total weight, (you and the bike,) what type of tire yer running, fuel AND mix ratio, plug and wire, ect. Any little thing can affect maximum output. I leave mine slightly "de-tuned" on purpose. Otherwise I would blow it in no time running WOT like I always do.

Installed my new front wheel.

It is a 26" Worksman with a drum brake. I'm still not sure how to use the strap in the 4th picture to keep the brake arm from moving. Notice the boss is making sure it get all done right.

LOL Draco, me either. I think it may be a part for a bike that they sell that works with the stop. But really dunno.

Really love the Worksman wheels! You will be happy with it.

That strap is a generic "fits all" one for anchoring the arm on a coaster brake rear hub. It will work fine for the drum brake too. Just remember that the arm will want to swing forward when you apply the brake.
My idea FWIW: Have one end of the strap wrapped around the fork leg, squeezed tight with a bolt, and the other, loose end, of the strap pointing forward and anchored to the drum arm with another bolt.
