Just spent the last couple of hours going over the bike. Found an issue that will further fan the flames of the Huffy Haters......the original spring seat had just about come apart at the springs. The top spring nuts had almost totally unscrewed themselves and the seat clamp wasn't all the way on the post. These were things that I honestly hadn't checked during my experience with the bike (I've owned the bike itself for a couple of years). I was probably one major jolt from a catastrophic event. This is something that I will certainly keep an eye on in the future.

Also, I finally got a partial shipment from JNM. Come to find out, I guess there are different sizes of exhaust gaskets.......the ones sent didn't have the stud holes spaced out far enough to fit on the studs. Had to knip out the end of one of the holes to make it work temporarily. Who knew......or was the gasket a fubar?

On a good note, the spark plug was the exact color that it was supposed to be. I could still see the lathe rings on the top of the light gray piston. The piston skirt looked very good from the open exhaust port --- and had a slight oily film on it.

The engine chain sprocket still looked great with no abnormal wear.

The Turbobuick1 chain tensioner required no attention --- great purchase on this one!

The rear hub was still tight with no slack. Guess that I got it right on the last adjustment I did a couple of months ago! The tires still had 50lbs of pressure. The Slime seems to slow the air leaks.

I know that some people get irritated that they have to do maintenance on their machines. I'm kinda the opposite ---- I enjoy piddling in my garage on a project that gives me great satisfaction.

Only the intakes are different .And that's because of the gt5 rat motor .You don't see two different size of expansion chambers do you ? Sound like you got rat intake gasket. LMAO

They also sent an intake gasket --- it was smaller still. Looks like the intake gasket will work. However, that's not the gasket that I needed.

If the larger gasket is also a different intake gasket, they've just been added to my 'do not buy from them again, stupid, list'.......hope I remember.

Ok dude, heres what I did . Been two months no leaks. Along with SBP chamber I run the JNM X-PORT so this means I need two exhaust gaskets . I made them out of a license plate . Installed high temperature RTV with copper. On the intake just a VERY THIN LAYER OF RTV. Also RTV and no base gasket. To raise the compression a smidge that way . The headgasket is a thiny .016 more compression .

Did you find a torque difference in using the JNM X-Port? Basically I'm looking at upgrading my PistonHawk here and there and I'm curious about real world results. I've read that some expansion chamber pipes can free up as much as .5 horsepower. I'm also considering the CR Machine head or even the CR machine piston, cylinder, head combo.

Thoughts and thanks in advance.

Dan.

Repaired the silencer that fell off last night. The perforated tube inside finally broke after being bent too many times on the last low mount pipe I used it on.
Simply welded a sleeve over the busted area and repacked it. Good as new!
