Interesting.
Not as labored now?

I'm finding very small changes with my A/F mixture and my timing make big differences in performance, vibration as well as the feeling of a labored motor.

So did I. Namely richer jetting and more advance. Retarded timing does cause higher temps.

Thanks for the mention in post 732, Hippysmack. I built my frame so I had a clean slate so to say, and had wet sumping in mind back then, so mounted my engine on a 15 degree forward lean.. just thought Id better mention this.

I will go back and add that rubine.
If there are any other updates or changes you'd like to make, just let me know.
Thanks again for sharing that.

edit:
I've made that change and also added a pic showing the angle.
Thank you!
