Ha, yeah there’s space because we’re in a drought and I can put everything outside.

Almost forgot a fender.

Looks great! 

The size is somewhat deceptive in most of the pix.  The one w/ you sitting on the hack puts it into perspective a bit better.

I’ve got a motor together with a mosh mash of three different engines, including the 100 head.



I also did a heavy cleaning on the Mikuni carb I hoped of avoiding running a Chinese carb I have here. Something I’ve gotten into the habit of doing with the flanged carbs is truing the o-ring face on a surface plate. This one was bad enough I could see into the intake.

What method do you use for the truing?

Tape wet/dry sandpaper to the surface plate, oil it, then patiently push it back and forth longways until you see an even plane of sanded surface.  Any gaps or valleys will show up very clearly until it's all uneven.  If you're worried about squareness, you can block it on the face of the carb, but I haven't felt the need to do that.

Sweet. That was my next question... I wasn't sure if it needed to be square or not.
