I adjusted my headset and painted my flex-pipe exhaust with hi-temp bbq paint. Then started the engine and watched the paint bake on. Good times.

Took care of my carb float bowl clearance to the top of the the crank case/gear box on my Honda CRF50 clone. I remembered that the Tecumseh AH600 engine has a spacer between the carb and engine. So I thought, lets see if it fits and what do you know it is perfect. Now I am glad I got those other two AH600 engine off of curtisfox.

Picked up an NGK BPR7HIX plug. Going to brave the heat soon and pull the bike out and redo the exhaust, boring out the exhaust flange on the muffler as well.

Well, took the dremel and a grinder and opened up the exhaust a bit, filed it to get it as clean and flat as possible. Then I took the dremel to the gasket, bored it out a bit, filed it. Tried to clean everything really good, then ran some beads of copper rtv on it.


Hope it works out. New spark plug going in next week when I can ride.

As I stated elsewhere I finally learned how to adjust the Sturmey-Archer tranny I use for a jackshaft. I had only been getting low and 2nd. The bike shop guy told me the shift chain moves 1/2". Mine was moving 3/8" because the axle was shifted to the right side limiting the travel of the shift bar in the axle slot. As soon as it quits raining and I repair the cable it should be AWESOME. It is geared pretty high with balls of torque and acceleration from 6-1/2 HP so may have to go to a bigger rear sprocket. It ran in the mid 50's with 2nd gear.

Nice looking rig you got there, those fenders scare the crap outta me though..... sure hope one those fender mounts dont decide to give it up when your cruising at 50mph...... that could get ugly real quick......ouch.....LOL!
