    This is my 1.50S from about 1991, it was one of the very first 1.50's sold. It has no letter designation on the right mounting lug indicating a first run engine. The letter designation narrows it...

    I ran the 1.00 Saito equipped with the same C&H Ignition I ran on the 1.50, timing set at precisely 35 degrees btdc. I think the combination of 35 degrees and the 15% fuel is a bit much. It has a...

    I got slammed around some a few years ago when I posted that the .46 MKII you see above would run sloppy rich in the midrange if I tried to use a 12x6 on it. I reasoned that with the larger prop the...

    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 a 15x6 at 9,700 as i had suspected. The 1.15...

    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 at BocaBearings. I just put new ones in my 1.00...

    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 bench mark prop @ 14x8, no rpm listed. I'd think...
