Would you call this a speedster if all it had was that great looking exhaust?

Re: Non-starter engines post-1917

Would these non-starter ignitions switches also be required to call it a "non-starter". Both ignition switches have the dimmer for mag lights. The ammeter block off plates are original one piece, not a disk inside a ammeter adapter plate.

Re: Rear Spring U-bolts

Frank on a quick analysis, that seems to make sense, but if you look again, you see that the flats go over the frame...the same frame for both 8 or 9 leaf springs...so the flats don't need to "grow" for an additional spring leaf thickness...just the length of the reach, down to the retaining plate....

If you're after a pump that's one thing however if it's just filtering you want go to a mower shop and get an in-line filter for a gravity fed system. Most riding mowers are gravity fuel fed.

Re: Pedal notches

Was wondering why the slow speed notch looks so different, spring end looks shorter then the replacement (pin to end distance). Also the notch & cam need to mesh properly - one could be more worn than the other but due to the effort I replaced both. Also don't forget the O-rings.
