Thanks a million from a newbie that is overwhelmed by all of the conflicting info on the do's and don'ts...let alone to 100 different engine options that, on the surface, seem to be the same engines.
I am looking forward to seeing what is posted!

A good site.

So far his product list isn't huge. But he seems to have a good attitude. And that's worth a lot.

Let's hope all goes well for him.

I believe that any one who purchases a new Chinee engine should at least break down the top end and port the intake & exhaust, deck the head, replace cheap gaskets or make your own then copper coat them for leak proof seal, NT carbs are ok a lot of people run em and like em I prefer the Dellorto or Dax RT Clone I also suggest an expansion chamber too, these are just a few thing's that will prolong the life of yer engine as well as give better performance and durability.
