Went to Ace Hardware and got a 3/8 fitting for my gas tank and a 3/8 tap. Mounted up the glass fuel bowl and added larger fuel line.

i compared the gt5 cylinder with a gt4cylinder and found several differences first the cylinder apeared to be smaller on gt4 the bottom port openings for the gt4 were smaller and more fit to the crank case also the exaust and intake manifolds were smaller on the gt4 the gt5 indeed had better breathing capibility stock

well to move on i decided to match the crank case to the gt5 head and it worked till i decided that the flow into case should be smoother and thats where i got into trouble i ground throu the case into the magneto compartment

i went to a welding shop and asked what it would take they said 100 bucks an hour so i was like frack that ill just buy a new case but then my neighbor just got back in town hes a aircraft mechanic who hasnt tigged in a while i gave it to him to see what he could do about it

so theres the story ill include some pics of the case i still have matched to cylinder port and the two different cylinders gt4 and gt5

notice the awesome stock paint the black cylinder is gt5 and silver is gt4
Don't feel embarrassed; this is R&D...research and development for benefit of all.

i need something to act as the rear brakes, since i don't have one anymore...

also the bike is converted to a single speed since i have no need for the gears...

Default Re: what did you do to your motor bike today?

broke down a few times today on my huffy
first the rear derailer was acting up and jammin then my shifter broke so now im stuck in high gear
second i have in the past bent 1 out of 3 sprockets and today another one bent so now im in second gear up and that is slippin every rotation
getting up to speed to start is impossible i had to pull clutch handle then run with the bike drop the clutch put weight on seat while running to start the motor then pull clutch in to keep it running while running next to bike as fast as i can to hop on and start off
oh and if that wasnt baD enough at the clucth handle the adjuster screw vibrated out while riding so i had to use my brake lever as a cluthc handle leaving me with out breaks

it was a rough ride home but i made it with the gears messed up i couldnt even pedal home if i had to

ive got some work to do on sunday im takin tomorow easy
