  Chilton reproduction fuel tanks
Posted by: louie figone - 07-29-2021, 09:52 AM - Forum: For Sale/Wanted - Replies (1)

Greg Gouveia (Gregs Speed Shop) is willing to reproduce his Chilton reproduction fuel tanks if he gets 30 deposits. Greg will offer these at $495.00 each tank, he needs a 50% ($245.00) deposit, the deposit is non refundable unless he does not get 30 deposits. The tanks will be finished in "straight chrome" sometimes called flash chrome, the same finish as the original Chilton tanks. Tanks will have two outlets in the bottom. The picture is of one I bought over 10 years ago and very well used on my A-bone. They are a very nice reproduction of the original Chilton tanks. It will take 3 to 4 months after the 30 deposits are collected. If Greg does not receive 30 deposits your deposit will be refunded.  If you need one or just want one to hang on your wall send your deposit of $245.00, check or money order to:

  Piston coatings

These guys, whose main office is in Michigan, graphite coat pistons. They can build up a worn piston and make it like new. Their coating runs in iron, chrome or Nikasil bores. They are loosely associated with US Chrome (Nikasil) in Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin. They are able to add up to .015 to a piston to save it. The process is not expensive, and is alky compatible. Here's a vid that Mark Loraine found on Nikasil, and the vid is also Line2line Coatings. Ted

  820 rings
Posted by: ted johnson - 07-16-2021, 09:40 AM - Forum: General - Replies (3)

The 820 single ring pistons that K Precision was selling, is the ring chrome, or is it a standard steel/iron ring like a normal 820. According to Dave Bonbright, you should NOT run a chrome ring against a chrome bore. I'm hoping these pistons and rings were meant to retrofit an earlier 820 so you can upgrade the engine. )f course, you can run a chrome ring OR a standard ring on Nikasil, but not on chrome bores. Any thoughts? Thanks. Ted

  Help with getting MC-9 to run
Posted by: Michael Drechnowicz - 07-07-2021, 11:35 AM - Forum: General - Replies (9)

I am trying to get my MC-9 with a flatback carb to run to take to a kart event this month. It starts right up with part throttle and choking the carb. It runs well for about 5 seconds and then starts to die like it is out of gas. If I choke it (cover the carb) it picks right back up. I do not see any bubbles in the fuel line so I don't think there is an air leak but I replaced the fuel line anyway. Changes to the carb adjustment screws do not help.

Engine was last run about a year ago and ran fine then.

Any suggestions for what to look for?

Thanks,

Michael
