On the case reed engine I have to change the rubber hose for one with a 45 degree angle. The silicone hose is longer which would allow me to move the carb farther back from the seat tube. I just don't know how this will effect the engine. Will it make more torque like a non reed engine or do nothing? Would be adding about 1 1/2 inch to the tube.
