    Piston coatings

    Automotive have used coated pistons for years. I've torn down engines with 12000 miles and the skirt coatings are usually worn off. Just sayin'.

    Tecumseh 8HP Electronic Ignition Question

    The ability to set actual ignition timing far outweighs any advantage of electronic ignition. If your set up has 12volt battery and charging system, you could fab up a really nice electronic ignition using a chrysler or GM HEI ignition module and coil. A lot of effort, just to eliminate points.

    .010, no scratch that .020 over HS50 :)

    The stuffer is a good idea. The old straight six chevy has a really messed up siamese intake port, and someone makes a stuffer to improve flow.

    HS40 engine on our Rupp?

    Has anyone tried using a flywheel from a vertical shaft rotary mower? They weigh less. 50 yrs ago I put one on my side popper go kart, was tough to pull start, but would rev up quick, so quick it out powered the centrifugal clutch. Maybe the clutch was worn, I dunno, was just a 13 yr old kid.

    Carburetor Expert's

    Read up about tuning weber carbs. Those use the emulsion tube holes & air bleed for fine tuning the mixture.

    Carburetor Expert's

    Does this have a removable emulsion tube? If so maybe wrong one, there are diffrent colors to ID them

    Carburetor Expert's

    The ones that run rich on the main system, possibly the main air bleed or emulsion tube is blocked or restricted. This is where the fuel mixes with air to form an emulsion. Not enough air and it will pull more fuel from the bowl.
