WTB: 40+ mph goal in 80 Sachs Suburban...parts please!?

Looking to breathe some new life into my recently obtained '80 Suburban. Want to reach the 40+ mph mark. Need an intake, 15mm carb, ported cylinder, header, and exhaust. Whether used or new...help a fella' out. Thanks ya'll.

You got a a,b,c or d engine on your Sachs ?

I gotta complete running sachs 505 1d with intake i may part with.

Get a D. They're indestructible.

Get a higher RPM pipe... the sachs is plenty torquy in the midrange (jamarcol is a good choice and cheap).

You want the larger ID header....

Stock D intake will do fine.

Doesn't have to be a 15mm carb, just get something different than the bing. You'll probably need a riser or custom intake for it to fit.

Get a 12 or 13t front sprocket...

You'll do 40+ guaranteed... if you set it up and tune it right.

yeah have a 15bing on my stock intake. Nothing else.

Round bings are fine... square bings suck.

be careful with 11t or more front gears, they hit the case.
