Cleaner than the rusted up stuff you find on Flea Market tables. Excellent bowl, (older) modern float material which appears to have never seen fuel, good pick-up tube, good looking main jet. Cast iron throttle lever, stamped steel choke lever with good spring. All complete with the exception of a m...

I can tell you how long it took to crack: about 1/10 of a second. I am not saying it did, or didn't, ...

Re: An odd question about sound.

You will want to hear a drum from 09-25, nice sound; 26-27, a little deeper; finally a repro Rocky Mountain drum, deeper still.

I absolutely understand why they were used in music. You will get your wish pretty easily, I think.

Sure Donnie Just got permission from Stan Howe to use one of his pictures. The intake swoops "out" sort of like an early "T" dogleg and has a built-in belcrank to actuate the throttle linkage. It also has a "slot" instead of a hole in the forward mounting position, since the bel-crank boss impeeds t...

I was pretty sure you had one, and was pretty sure it had a carb on it! Unfortunately, not in the market for a third one...just the manifold.

FOUND! - Rayfield intake manifold for L2P, L2C, etc.

This manifold has an offset to push the carb out toward the frame, and has a built-in bell-crank to operate the throttle.
