Re: Turning reeds around...is this a good idea?

Everything looks good to me....The intake adapter will work...If you use a WT series carb youll need to JB Weld the pulse hole in the drop area so there isnt an airleak.........

Only thing im intrigued to find out how much you have changed the timing of the reeds initial start of opening in relation to the transition between the upstroke to the downstroke motion to the crank counterweights and whether reed flutter at high rpms will hapen........

Thrse engines are designed for power tools like power augers,,trash pumps and generators......

The case pulses differ from a euro style engine where the reeds arent battered full on by the downstroke pulse like the chinese engine design........
