Slight adjustment to plans here...

While fireing up Sami's Stage 1 motor it developed a "slight" oil leak... :roll: http://www.heymow.com/viewtopic.php?t=593

So I pulled it and replaced with my back up IMOW stock motor... A good runing 13.5 hp with the 28R cam, starts great and runs consistant so I wanted to stay with stock carb...

Unfortunatly, I can't close the hood with the stock aircleaner so I need to go with the aftermarket filter...

Lot of guys asked about the "adaptor" on the stage 1 motor...which was an aluminum velocity stack for a
modified carb...





This is more of a show than go trick, but the extra air can't hurt...

Took a 2 1/2" PVC Pipe cap...



Flattened the end to get a good seal...marked and drilled for bolt holes... opened up the carb inlet hole...then tapered and smoothed the inside for flow...



A little gasket sealer to seal it up and sand the outside to "rough it up" so the filter sticks..a $1 part and ten minutes with the Dremel and instant Air Filter Adaptor...



.        Sorry i know its a old post but did this actually worked?

Sami put the chassis together and bolted on the fenders, tires and wheels...



I did the set up on the axel, chain and brakes...

Little tight in there, but all fits and rolls smooth..



what did you use for the chain tensioner?
