three times the fun

Jason Luther /

okay i have three questions (seriously i dont just sit around trying to think of them, or do i.....)

number one-upon looking underneath my '77 puch maxi's motor while changing the trans oil, i noticed what looked like to be another drain plug(it had the red washer and same hex head as the trans drain) beneath the flywheel housing. is there another cavity i should be lubricating (hold your jokes till the end)

number two. the gasket (bing carb) that seperates the throttle assembly cap and the main carb body was destroyed, so i have been running without one, can enough air leak in for me to run too lean?

number three. what is the proper notch to put the needle on (from the point going up)?

the old girl is running good, but i think one of these things is limiting the top speed. i taped over part of the air hole in my air cleaner and it ran a little faster, but i couldnt get it to idle, even the the screw all of the way in. sorry for the marathon-jason
