  • Fired her up today!

    Got the flywheel in from Michigan Dave, put it on and fired her up. Cranked on the 4th try. Not bad for sitting up for several months. I found out I have rotten fuel line, so I have to add that to the project. I also need to add hose clamps in certain areas where the ties are weak. But I was very happy to hear her crank up right away. Now comes the tune up!

      Yeah, I only cranked it then killed it. Is that thing supposed to be torqued to a certain point or can I just tighten it until I can't tighten it anymore?

        It need's to be torqued to the proper spec with a torque wrench.

        When you find the proper spec, drag it over here and we'll put the torque wrench to it.

        Dave may have the spec on it.

          Usually there's a specific torque based on what it takes for the friction to keep it from vibrating loose over time.

            Book says" 140-145" ft-lbs. of torque., Hay Bobby if he brings it over check out my "special" socket for intalling/removing that nut./
