Re: Need choke if stalls

Checking it while engine running it seems both throttle plate shafts are a bit sticky just before closing all the way. Carbs are rebuilt units & don’t have much time running.

Re: 35 Drums on 36 spindles

Re: Yellow Teflon tape on oil filter connections?

I’ll try to reshape the existing flare before cutting & starting fresh. Hopefully the process of tweaking the line during install is what damage the flare & reshaping with flare tool will work.
