    Hi all

    I am a newb. UP and running great - first build from
    1 tank of gas so far - 16-1 ratio - mostly under 15 mph
    As in the Pic - I found a leak in the gasket - any input would be appreciated
    What do I do now?

    thanks for all your help

    #1 - check to be sure case bolts are tight

    well there's only one correct way to stop that leak
    sorry to say -- take apart time

    there is a rinky dink THING
    but sure not recommended
    a little JB weld over the leaking area
    only a temp fix -- good for a few miles maybe

    ride that THING

    looks the same sort of motor as my zbox, I found that I had to grind out the frame mounts to stop the motor case from spreading, front mount only.
