Thanks for the reply, I’m just asking if people have lately been getting assaulted with bullshit trolling that doesn’t lead a conversation anywhere. I’ve gone down the rabbit hole here looking for advice and It seems that if people say one wrong thing then a bunch of members just attack them with senseless bs posts that don’t lead anywhere. Perhaps a lot of them are drunk posts, I dunno, but it’s not conducive to the MA website at large and it makes it hard to navigate, cuz there’s over 10 yrs of posts to negotiate. Then some guy gets an ego boner and trolls you because you haven’t spent 100 hours digging. The website/posting record needs some housecleaning.
Anyway, thank you for responding. My setup is this: 1978 Newport maxi, 2hp. Original Stock head, chamber, piston, and gearing. New rings- gapped appropriate. New treat bearings and seals- I got the expensive ones cuz why not, they’re only a few bucks more! I kept my stock crank in cause it looked pretty solid but maybe that’s a mistake. I don’t know how differently the ‘race’ or ‘super stuffed’ would perform- was hoping to find an article but no show. New spark wire, boot, plug- bosch b6. Proma GP pipe, sealed good, neighborhood looks at me w wonder. Upgraded to 15 Bing clone carb. 15 treats intake. 77jet at 3rd needle notch down. 78 was 4stroking regularly. Timing is @ 17-18, though I don’t have a timing light yet (ya- next paycheck). Clutch is treats 3-shoe out of box w springs adjusted to 1 turn in from flush. No air leaks, promise! I’m going 33 according to gps. That’s ok but I think meneeds 40. I’ve got pretty good takeoff and midrange but I want some more speed. Question is- do I just gear up, and what gears would you folks recommend? Or- am I already maxing out my stock hi torque cylinder/head? Thanks for any insight, let me know if more info would be helpful!
