Same oil the engine runs with.

Think about an engine that sits all winter, do you take it apart and lube everyt...

Re: need carburetor help

The spray jet valve is just a simple metering device, at this point cleaning it more then likely will not do anything except make it shiny. Have you checked the float level? If the fuel level in the bowl is too low will make it hard to suck gas into the engine. To ask again, have you check compressi...

My parts books make a jump from 1921 to 1928 with none in between. For at least 1921 it still shows the early perch bushing used with spacers. The later perch was made wider to eliminate the spacers. By 1928 the parts book was only showing the one type bushing for both spring and perch. You might lo...

Wild idea. If you are having pistons made, have them made with room on the top slot to fit 2 narrow compression rings.
