Re: Gas Blowing Out Carburetor When Running

If it is ignition related, it would be a backfire, or for some reason igniting when the intake valve is open. If it’s not firing back out of the carb and just chuffing raw gas spray out, it has to be valve related. The only way gas can flow backward through the carb is through an open intake valve. ...

Re: Your Technique for removing rusted in & through valves

I got these out using penetrating oil and tapping the butt end through the lifter holes. Patience is key. I have seen them so thin that they break off as soon as you start tapping. I have never had to drill one out.

Re: Driver's side headlight won't light

He is having the problem with magneto headlights. They are wired in series. I don’t quite understand how one can work and one not since the current has to pass through both. If one burned out, neither one lights. Seems like it would have to be a ground problem.

Re: Stipe cam

I looked at Langs’ catalog for Stipe cams. It says they “can be used with stock lifters”. It doesn’t say you can’t use adjustable lifters. I take that to mean no special lifters required. I have put in several Stipe cams with adjustable lifters with no problems.

Checking the crop

Checking out the cotton crop here in West Tennessee.

Cotton likes the hot weather. The bolls are starting to open. Soon it will be time for defoliation and the fields will be pure white as far as the eye can see.

Re: When cows fly

They wind tunneled that cow wrong. Cows always stand with their butts to the wind. That’s how you tell which way the wind is blowing when you have to pick a field for a dead stick landing.

I have had good luck with the Rust-oleum High Performance Enamel. You have to closely follow the instructions on the can. If it says wait 10 minutes to recoat, watch the time and spray in 10 minutes. If it says wait a few minutes, I usually wait about five. If you can’t recoat in the specified time,...

Re: Which way should the blade cut?

It should turn ccw as you are looking at the blade side of the saw, and cut on the pulling stroke. Those are good saws. When the blade wears out, you can make several nice knife blades from it.

Re: Replacing a Valve Part 2

That broken piece of valve that was missing may have gotten under the intake valve and bent it. I would check compression on #3.
