Re: Tree hugger

in 2017, greehouse gas production in the US, per capita had dropped to the lowest level since 1964. Additionally, this also puts the US at 72% of our all time high (1972) output and as a bonus, at a constant downward path since 2000. As of 2017, and using the span from 1972 to 2017 to be a fair comp...

Re: 13T - Lack of Power Above 30 mph

12+ volts and a float valve which is not restricted; and the two standard valves sold by dealers (grose and needle) have a greatly restricted hole for the fuel to flow through into the carb. They do not flow fuel nearly as well as the original one did. This restricts top speed and limits the length ...

Re: Stuck tie rod end?

I can clearly see in your picture that you have NOT broken the drive tang off, thus the bolt will simply screw the helicoil out. Every time. Helicoils are larger than the hole and expand tightly into them. They are used in through-holes in industry everywhere. After installing ANOTHER helicoil, with...

Re: Holly G venturi

Hopefully, you'll find a kind benefactor. Given that 25% of it's price is just the material cost alone, for the remaining $ return, I wouldn't fire up a lathe for the work and time involved. The list price is a bargain. Hope your search is not a long one.

Re: Truefire timing issue?

I should have been more clear as to what to look for: note how far ccw the timer housing is. It just lifts off when the bolt is loosened and the tension "finger" is released. I cannot fathom why it will not rotate fully for you but you may come to a better understanding soon.
