    Look into Eastwoods 2K line. I have great results with it on engines and frames. It's catalyzed so fuel spills and oil spills wont harm it.

    Manco disc Brake conversion !

    Are you haveing an issues with the rear band set up? Unless you're going with hydraulic discs, I can't see an advantage to a mechanical caliper over the stock band set up.

    Heathkit RC car....

    I know some members here are into vintage RC like me. This may have been discussed before but I do not recall it. I never knew Heathkit made RC cars in all of my years racing and collecting. Pretty pimitive but that's why I dig them so much!

    ideal throttle response?? wot from idle?

    Where's the ignition timing? I'm not a fan of a plug you cannot gap and read. I would go with the NGK personally.

    WTB Sensation Mike Bike frame and fork

    Anyone have a lead? I bought a frame and fork for a good friend sight unseen. Unfortunately it's a pile and I really want to start him out with something better. I don't need wheels or an engine, just the frame and forks. Let me know if you can help and are willing to ship. Thanks, Chad

    Gearing insight....

    You already have a jackahaft. Make the switch to a TAV. You won;t regret it. It will multiply your static gear ratio by 2.7:1 in low range. Killer take off and a .9 final drive for top end. That is in stock form of course...

    Gearing insight....

    ^^^ This. You're calculating static gear ratio. You need to take the circumference of the rear tire into account. You r static gear ratio on a 6" wheel bike verses a 12" wheel bike is off the spectrum....

    What is it, Can anyone pin down the Year and Model of this Bike, can find absolutely no info online, 400X or Rebel, decals reflect that last year

    Looked like a drum to me in that last picture but I was using my phone. I;d say it's an R4001 unless it was altered....

    Does it have a drum brake? If it's a 1975, I believe that would make it a R4001 model.

    disc brake question for Stellar Compact

    If the tube spacers are in there(and it appears that they are), that is all you need as far as I know. You are correct in the term "float". If the caliper were bolted to the mount rigidly, any high or low spot in the sprocket would be felt in the brake handle and result in a pulse and poor...
