Anyone out there know the specs for the main bearings in a Saito 100T?

Pete, I have always been fascinated by farm tractors with Detroit Diesel two strokes, this is a Massey Ferguson 98 powered by a 3-71, underneath it is actually a re-badged and re-sheeted Oliver 990. Note twin air filters for huge air flow.

Now that makes sense . And our cats pee is better than your cats pee . Not that i would know , I havent tried your beer . I dont drink much beer anymore . Im a bundy man , got 3x Litre bottles from a neigbour after I gave him some firewood . It was a win win . I got rid of a big stack of wood that I dont have a wood fire for and he scored cheap firewood . Its going for about $350 a tonne here . Bundy $50 a litre , both will keep u warm . He got about 7 trailer loads .

He did but his liver exploded . It wasnt pretty

Hey Pope, a few years ago my son's cat drank some whiskey, he passed out in middle of the living room floor, my called a veterinarian and the vet, said there is not a thing you can do. In the morning he will either be dead or alive. Cat's have nothing in their system to handle alcohol. It's deadly poison to them. The cat rose again on the third day. He never drank again though.

I had some brew the other day in Misery (that's Missouri to the unacquainted) that was 10% alcohol, and it was very tasty too. I never got drunk on beer, but a few of those and I would!

You have to watch some of those eastern European beers too. My son has a Polish wife and over their they drink Vodka like water and like their beer strong.

I heard the same thing about Pinto pistons. Back when 2 strokes ruled the road everyone knew you had to red line them every so often or they would lose power and run rough. You had to burn out the carbon build up. The S-2000 reminds me of a 2 stroke due to heat soaking the engine. The intake gets hot air from the radiator so you have to keep rpms up at the stop lights or it will bog down when you press the go pedal. So, if you pull up next to a guy (or babe) in a S-2000 and they are keeping it wrapped up a bit they probably aren't showing off.

What's going on there OF? Trashing Kadets like that? I really worry about you sometimes.

I had a 1974 Yamaha RD200 two cycle motorcycle with the same problem, it was bad about fowling the left cylinder plug unless you kept the RPM up.

I had a 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid that would foul all four spark plugs no matter how you drove it. Ford said its normal.

It was a case of Ford not wanting to spend time on it to find out what the problem was. I replaced it with a Job2 Titanium model and it was perfect(until they updated the PCM and broke the braking). I got rid of it for an F150 and never looked back. Then the F150 got destroyed due to an icy road and another driver losing control. Now I have another F150 and I don't care for it as much as my last one and wishing I could have found a direct replacement.

Wrong size (gas) and the ones that do fit are on backorder with no ETA.

Got mine in January with 52 miles on it, and have nearly 16K on it so far. I don't know who designed the interior, but they should be fired for being a dumbass.

First they brag about making the interior 2" wider, but use that space to make the center console wider and the door panels thicker, which in turn narrows the seat bottom. Seats are not as comfortable as the earlier models were, big dumbass mistake.

Second, they left the bottle holder in the door bottom like on previous years, but put a bigass speaker above it leaving NO room to put a bottle in it, so wasted space. Really stupid moves on the interior design.

This is an exhaust ring that will fit the Saito FG-33R3, Saito FA 200R3, and the Saito FA 170R3 radial engines. This ring is especially nice if you plan on cowling in the engine and exhaust to be directed out the bottom.

Quote for Keleo.

Hobbsy, I hope you and the Cadet will be very happy together! Better check her ID though, you don't want a crossing state lines charge if things don't work out!

Oh yeah, it belonged to my Dad, it's been sitting in my brothers Cessna 182 hangar since late 2005. The carb may need cleaning out but that's a no brainer. It's been sitting between a Ford Cobra and a 1963 Corvette coupe, a rare one with a 3 speed on the floor. Only 653 made with the 3 speed.

At my income level I have to settle for Saito's and one Harley.

A free used Cadet, the red ones are very collectible. I'll make it look good and run good.

Take your time getting all the threads started,it's a bit frustrating but well worth the effort i have a keleo ring on my 200r3,they sound good.

Dave you and me are on the same income.If your brother has a genuine hand beaten aluminium bodied carol shelby car it's worth mega bucks so take out a life insurance premium on him real quick.I think if you spent some time fettling the cadet you could ride it safely back over the state line,they even have formula one drivers racing hotted up lawnmowers nowadays...hope they handle as good as harleys mate.
