    Warm in the winter and cool in the summer, they get along fine with earthquakes as well
    This is my hillbilly cabin, I'm fermenting stuff to make booze already, I just need to shoot at trespassers and I will be all set.

    Nice truck, how many horsepower are you after?.
    My "not so hot rod" 1961 Land Rover Series 2 is still collecting dust, I found the other day that the "new" flexi brake lines, brake pistons, and master cylinder have rusted to the point of being useless, I installed them 3 years ago, it has been sitting for 4 years, I should have left the brake job for the end.

    I ordered the one from Tusk on Amazon, along with a bunch of weights, a dial gauge and a spoke torque wrench, the Pig is almost 10k miles and on it's 3rd set of tires, I'm surprised it lasted that long until it started wobbling, needs a new front rotor as well.

    Nobody here in Costa Rica knows that motorcycle tires need balancing, I looked everywhere for balancing weights for motorcycles and everyone laughs at me  lol. Right now the XR650L is grounded in the garage because the front wheel is out of balancing, it is wobbling too much for my liking, you can feel it when braking; I'm waiting for the weights and spoke torque wrench to arrive, had to order them from Amazon, this has given me a virgin market idea to exploit, I ordered a balancing stand and dial gauge as well to offer the service in my store when I open it.

    I have a Taida 61mm BBK with a matching NCY big port head that I got from Dan, it was plug and play, no bore needed, but you need a matching carb and exhaust to match the bigger in/ex ports on the head.

    I think it would be a better idea to go with a gravity fed system, put the fuel tank higher than the carburattor, too much pressure from the fuel pump can cause the carb to overflow.

    I believe a trike would be easier to build with two engines.
    Is it possible to run a GY6 engine upside down?, that would make things a lot easier.

    My 1961 Land Rover Series 2 is like that, with Lucas wiring you just have have to be careful not to let the Lucas smoke escape.

    Yesterday's close call, semi truck on narrow twisty road without an escort, very common around here, because saving a few bucks is more important than someone else's life.
