    I know the office supply chain stores carry different size hole punches - or at least they used to. Small tiny circle punches, star, square, etc... Might be worth a look.

    Agreed on checking it beforehand for excess rubbing/friction. I think there's a little common sense required and I think for those involved with this thread, that it would make sense to check the...

    The thickness of the paper gasket is so negligible, I doubt there would be any problems if one didn't use one. Typical model engine gasket paper is roughly .010" and the amount of fore/aft...

    I don't know, maybe... I tried a Perry pump on a TT Pro .46/stock carb and it would load up horribly below WOT no matter how I adjusted the regulator. I think the real world answer is probably a...

    It's been like that for a long time. Several years. They had some spare parts for some engines a few years back, but I'm sure their stock dried up quickly.

    I'd be using silicone RTV if I already had it on-hand. Cutting gaskets out of any material sucks and takes time. I have a 2yr old, so time is a premium in my house.

    A turbocharger will work in theory, but only because the turbo charger creates back pressure at the exhaust port. They have been turbocharging 2-cycle snowmobiles for some years now. I think on a...
