    Bolts could be too long and bottomed out. Gasket degeneration sometimes causes the initial loosening. Silicone with no gasket is best in my experience.

    Cancer?

    Now I am really sorry. Thanks for interjecting some humor (It was humor right?). It has been a tough week or two. May God bless.

    Cancer?

    I apologize to you for my latest comment. I rarely feel the need to respond to half wits. Sorry.

    Cancer?

    Just curious, in what other idiotic conspiracy theories do you believe? Your moronic, perhaps paranoid views may be quite entertaining to those of us that are reasonably minded.

    Cancer?

    This is a bunch of crap and I am deeply offended by this post. As stated previously my sister recently died from cancer. She is the best person that I know to have ever walked this earth. I am certain that the dedicated work of Doctors and Researchers allowed me to have the pleasure of her...

    Indexing a spark plug

    Your recommendation is to use a very hot plug with a 3/8 reach for gas and a very cold plug with a 1/2 inch reach for methanol? Interesting. If you set up your cam correctly with the proper valve springs indexing is absolutely needed for all plugs with a wire electrode.

    Indexing a spark plug

    By using thin washers you slightly change the orientation of the electrode. Are you using a stock class slapper cam? Stock size valves?

    Indexing a spark plug

    Flathead indexing is necessary so the valves do not hit the electrode when the valves come up to max lift, it is not a matter of increasing flow by one orientation or another.. I always did it by having the electrode point to the left rear head bolt. Some may say that other positions are...

    piston clearance

    Exactly why I added to your post. I fear anaphylaxis touching "Made in China tools".

    Animal BP again

    1. A basically unneeded rule that realistically will not be enforced, as rarely, in most kart racing, is a motor taken down that far. Besides for those that depend on their motor builders for assembly, it increases costs. I am a supporter of rules that do not mandate disassembly of the lower...

    piston clearance

    If you have the capacity to measure accurately by all means go with .0025 or even as low as .002 If you are using junk tools stick with the 3.5. How was it bored is also a consideration junk tools vs quality.

    No need for animal.

    Curious about the same thing. Many of us know that the standard compression release self destructs with high RPM and increased valve spring pressure. I have been working with animals as soon as I could buy one, before even headers and aftermarket rods were available. Through personal...

    My My-chron2 comes through.

    Rest assured, under the tongue.

    My My-chron2 comes through.

    Just to give you all a laugh..... I can't find a thermometer, and there is a pathway that I may have been exposed to the virus. My ancient My-chron 2 with a used EGT sensor attached tells me my temp is 97. Maybe I will try it with a Mychron 3 as well...

    Money isn't as important as connections, good behavior, or missing teeth.
