Does your primary close smoothly? Or too fast?

How is the belt moving in the secondary? Does the secondary begin to open right away?

The chain is probably not so much the problem as is the upper sprocket. As near as I can count, the teeth are 20 as they should be, and the chain appears to be a 66 pitch, which is standard. However,...

I have tried for days to get back onto this forum to answer your question, and perhaps you've already got it figured out.

I've never heard of a needle jet setter, nor have I ever used one to remove and replace the needle jet in the round slide Mikuni carbs. By pulling the main jet, and then removing the brass washer...

If I recall correctly, we used a lot of belts that read "1105" in the last 4 digits anyway. Those were probably Dayco numbers. The Polaris number was ended in "1042" as I recall. However, these were...

There are a lot of questions that need to be answered in order to give good answers when talking about these 550s. That was an engine that was put on the market far too early in the R&D process, and...

It kind of sounds to me like your excess fuel trouble might be related to a liberal use of the enrichment (choke) system. (Earlier you mentioned getting it started by much pulling with WOT.) WOT is...

I would have said check for fire and check for fuel first, but it sounds like those are covered. It rather sounds like a compression problem; that's the third easy trouble shooting deal I'd want to...

The interesting sidebar to the culmination of this event has been the addition of local classic, tired-iron, etc races. We're talking the little old box-sleds from the 60s and 70s. They had some...

600s seem to be the most common, a strong, reliable engine size with plenty of power and speed…and economy, for long-distance racing.

A race like this does help to drive the construction of tough,...

Those triples were, as Pop alluded to, known for throwing the crank out of synch. However, an even simpler explanation could easily be in the clutch itself. If the clutch 'swallowed' some bits of the...

Yes, the rings may seal well enough after they are warm and have expanded so that the engine can run. If that's the case, it's probably time to be re-doing the top end.

The spring could be one way of addressing the heavier track load of those paddles. Typically a couple more teeth on the driven (drive shaft) sprocket would be the simple way to address this. I wonder...
