It was sure fat Chuck. I see no clutch peddle so I am assuming it is a "glide" type clutch. ANy other info that can be shared on it. I wasnt able to get down there this year as I had hoped. We were going to bring my ole mans open twin tractor but he ended up in the hospital for a while.

It has a slipper clutch.   yes it was fat, pretty humid in there even more so than from the day before. I had leaned it up and bumped up the timing and still on the rich side. Part of was the fact that it was not hooking up to load the motor a little better, it would of burnt a little cleaner. I was 2 mph slower than Calvin that won it 10 ft ahead of me. Friday I was 1 1\2 mph slower than Russ just 3 ft back.   The chevron style tires really worked  a lot better.

Hope your dad is doing better
