Re: Transom saver

That bracket that you have posted up as an extention will cause more harm than good without using a transom support bracket. What it will do (From a physics point of view) is create more of a leverage and almost double the weight effect. Once its traveling along going over bumps and humps your going...

Re: Pistons-Rods-Cranks-Crankcases.

So out of the 2 rods ive posted up, The seagull 2 (single beam) would be the best to use. Im after reliability thats all. The taller bearing crankcases would be the best to use then.

Re: FV/FVP Carb Body.

Wouldn't that be because the 40 series is 64cc 11.20mm carb and the LLS is 102cc 13mm carb and higher HP. Like the FVP/FV have restricted carbs as they are 64cc like the 40 series, but less HP than the standard 40. That would be wright Kieth. I was always under the impression both 40 and 100 series...
