    Barry, you can bet safely every time that when someone complains about a Saito vibrating or getting poor fuel economy that the LS needle is too rich.

    Dan and Pete, I think the 15x6 rating for the 1.15 @ 8,800 has to be a misprint. In the Clarence Lee test of the 1.00 I linked above, the 1.00 turned...

    72, it sounds like the 1.00 was run inverted for much of its life, my guess it just needs good clean up. The new bearings are $11.88 and fre shipping...

    I'd be real curious as to whether the 1.15 was actually more powerful than the 1.00, the 1.15's benchmark prop is listed as 15x6 @ 8,800. The 1.00's...
