    That is sweet......if you want a little more preformance put a couple homes in the breather it will supprise you (about 3 will do it )

    what's the matter, had to get the grease & oil off? :wink:

    do you mean like perforate the main circular part a bit for more flow? maybe a pattern of many little holes?

    the black cover just drill about 3 holes in it ......sutan replaced his with a trinket box one of those fancy silver wire type things and his runs real good like most things the better it breaths the better it runs.

    Nice job Augie, its amazing what a couple minutes with a wire wheel can do. Here is an engine that I recently aquired that was done by Kevin aka mypetelvis who did an awsome job on it...Kelly

    Thats the round head 48cc from Grubee, they've been around for awhile now and in my experience are superior to the the 4 square heads that I've built up...Kelly

    damn, nogoodnic42, that looks really nice...being the air-cooled fanatic that i am, i'm not gonna paint anything, but i am gonna get a dremel to finish off the fins right. this first attempt was mostly to see if i'd like the results, which i do 8)

    Kelly, that is a very nice looking engine. I like the all black/polished contrast. Also noticed the WCM logo in the back.....how'd that get all the way out to the midwest? Are you into mopeds too?

    The engine was painted and polished by Kevin who goes by mypetelvis on the moto boards. He is in SoCal and occasionly rides with the Myrons guys. It was done for a full kustom bike for another member that never came to fruition. It was recently put up for sale and I jumped on it. I have wanted this engine since the first time I saw this pic almost two years ago, right now I'm planning on putting this beauty in my chopper project...Kelly

    ...wutta bummer :wink:
  14. what is the purpose of that thing that connects to the fuel line going into the carb?

    What does it do? Should I buy one...or continue to just have a line from the tank straight into the carb?

    That's a fuel filter. You should have one to keep contaminants out of your engine.
