I just installed a 70cc airsal on my 77 newport.
I have it running nicely at idle. Low and steady.
Before I throttle, I spray for leaks.
It leaks at the head base and carb.
I replaced those gaskets twice so I'm assuming I'm doing something wrong.
Starting with installing the cylinder gasket.
I then install the cylindar
Head gasket and head. (Piston ring is in place)
I tighten with a sockit (not ratchit) with my fingers. "X"
Then install the pipe (snug on the cylinder and lose at the bracket)
I then proceed to torch the head gasket "X" to a fair snug.
Replace the carb, spark plug...
(Turn the petcock to "on")
It fires right up with slight throtle and maintains a steady rpm.
The head leaks a bit, the cylinder leaks a bit more abd the shivy leaks the most.
How do I install the gaskets and propperly secure potential air leaks?
Please pardon mis spellings, they are not significant.
