Greg, I believe that. I still have a 49 G down in the woods with the jug kit waiting for me patiently. A powerhouse that'll outlast us all. With a blown out PTO... Hah!

The F-20 was all set today for oiling testing: Son worked hard on it on Sunday! I was the gopher. Got bearing clearances set, all rod caps facing the right way :roll: and re-adjusted the oil pan to suit the "new" oil pump. He even admitted he was shot from HIS down and under the engine and up again....

My 18 came to me with a 70's repro newer wood firewall as they thought it was a 22 or 23 (engine serial). There was sort of a hole there next to the carb adjust slot so I grabbed the drill, opened it up at a steep angle, ran a wire up and put a loop on it. Myself, I'm not real keen on adding "modern...
