I suppose it would be easy to burn your finger. To actually do it would be easy. Just rotate the needle valve so the nipple points to the back. The throttle stop screw looks like it will point...

MDS took over the old Ucktkam line. They were very rough quality with sand in the castings and were machined in high schools I have heard. When MDS too over, they seemed much better. I have a few...

Could be a leaky O ring holding the carb, or an air leak at the pinch bolt or where the needle valve screws in. The Magnums are bad for that. A bit of silicone dabbed on with a toothpick can solve...

Good to know that the aluminum rod stands up. I have a fair bit of similar stuff from work when they cleaned house. I believe it is mostly zinc. Haven't tried it lately. As for the OP if he is...

I forgot about this thread, I was going to say something a few days ago but got busy. I press in two pins about 1/4" apart on a thick steel arm. You hold the wire in a vise, and the wire pivots on...

The tolerances are probably not tight, they just used them up from sloppy machining. You can use a marker on the case and insert the crank and spin it to see where it is rubbing. If it is not...

A 5-40 was a standard size. It still is. It is a 1/8" stove bolt thread, meaning an 1/8" hole drilled for the prop would be right. Later on the 1/4" 28 UNF (fine) became standard for the larger...

I use Silvo or Brasso for lapping. You can run the crank in a drill with some 600 sandpaper on a flat piece of aluminum that is wider than the crank window. Don't polish where the bearing seats.

I take a fine single cut file and take a few swipes with my thumb pushing in the centre so there is no rocking, and it just takes the top of the machining marks off. I don't use a gasket. I had to...

It is probably richer inverted if the tank is lower. I wouldn't go any farther with the muffler hole or carb size. Try a bunch of props. Usually square dia/pitch is max. 8-8, 9-9, 10-10. but the...
