According to the there is no limitation to where the tank is positioned in relation to the carb with the exception of distance, 200mm Center of tank to center of engine.[/QU

the motor ran great . The only problem was the low adjustment changed considerable with fuel height. once the tank was down below half or more and the pumped had to pull instead of having the pressure of the fuel above the carb height the mixture would run leaner ,and need a readjustment. The motor would flood after sitting a hour or more after the motor shut down . break the siphon on the tank and it could sit with a full tank for ever. My motor was not the only one with the same conditions. Two other fg motors in the same air frame a 14c and another fg 11 were experiencing the same results. since i have lowered the tank to the center line all of the above conditions have stopped and the motor holds the same adjustments no matter the fuel level. so maybe i am compensating for a faulty carb but it runs like a swiss watch now .
my MVVS 35cc gasser came with a bad Walbro, it would not pump fuel ! I even had the chain saw shop rebuild it . it still would not pump. I called Walbro, told the lady what the carb was on and the problem, she search Walbro's files and found I was telling the truth and she sent me a new carb free

that's the ticket

I will have to say that the short time I have been flying
i have never needed to pump any of my Saitos either.
Mans then I get three of them with a pump. The 300 I just got has an after market pump. So what do I do take the pump off and see how it runs without the pump and then put it back on and see how runís with the pump? The 120 and 300 duel carb and plug has the Saito pump.

Nah. A new plane carrier. Picked up a 2012 F350 King Ranch 6.7 Powerstroke, deleted. You could say, back in the saddle again. Man I missed driving a diesel.

Well, researching adding a second key to it. Only has one, and it requires 2 keys to program a third. Going the dealer route is expensive. Apparently the same software I use for making changes to the 2018 will work to program new keys.

Thatís what I like about my old trucks. I can have a dozen keys made and they just work.
I am looking at a tuner but I donít know my last truck I got crazy with and kinda put me off on doing all that again.

My work truck is 99 F250 7.3 ltr diesel. Great engine but needs new orings for the oil pressure driven fuel injection system. I think there's like 15 orings total but it's leaking oil mostly at the turbo riser. Not a job I'm looking forward to. If I put large Saito stickers on it maybe it'll stop leaking?

My brother has a 97 with 315,000 on it, I put a new water pump on it at 250.000, he had the injector rings replaced at 275,000. No drive train work other than that so far.

My 99 had 346000 before the doors wouldnít latch anymore and the bed was so rusty nothing would stay in the box anymore.
But it would run it had baby swamp injectors adrenaline high pressure oil pump and the swamps tuner along with a bigger turbo.

400k is not at all uncommon today.

Looks like pickups are okay, but motorcycles are off topic

I switched the exhaust on the 50 to the all thread straight pipe and cast muffler, I may get to run it tomorrow and with a Turbo Header.

Looking at his work I am humbled in every way. Quite an undertaking.

The guy is as patient as he is talented, that must have taken months if not years.

I have been ordering some parts from MacGregor and that works out very well, by picking and choosing between them and Horizon I can get everything I need except exhaust parts. I may undertake an early 82 next because I have a crankcase and a carb that are lonely.

Heck with patience and skill. I admire the guts it takes to fly that plane.


Been buying all my new Saito parts fro MacGregor for the last few years.

I have been following the Curtis Hawk for some time, his work is breathtaking and that exhaust system was something I thought you guys just had to see!

Note, no pictures of trucks were posted. maybe if the bike had a Saito sticker on it, they would have kept it?
