am considering putting on a 14cc head from arc. does anyone know if this will pass the stock clone class tech? it takes all stock parts. it also has all the stock casting numbers. any info would be helpful.
.010 head gasket not sure how far from the hole I couldn't see down in there an didn't have a flashlight on hand to check, as far as the visual inspection was actually taking the head off to look at the piston. they looked at the combustion chamber on the head an didn't say anything. I also double checked with them asked if it was good and passed and they said yes.What head gasket and how far in the hole? Visual inspection done internally?
Could be ive never had the cc test done before that point so im not sure how the cc test is supposed to be doneI would have to say the cc check was done incorrectly, a 14cc head .010 gasket generally should not pass. The 14cc head was never a stock item on a clone 196cc so it appears the person(s) doing the visual check did not know what to look for.
The 14cc head was manufactured for the early GX160 when Honda started to attempt to meet emission rules and the GX160K1 became available the 14cc head was never seen again from them. The clone manufacturers started copying the GX160 when the 14cc head was available, it did not ever appear on the GX200 Honda and when they copied it, they did not use it. The racers and builders discovered it out there and guess what, it became what many thought a stock part.
Wrong!!! There are no engines coming over from china that are AKRA legal with a 14cc head. A tech man with any knowledge of appearance will catch it.
