Dang, I wonder why the Gal at Treats didn't tell me they had this when I was asking about the Polini kit for the ZA. Course my order already shipped.

Why do I need more gaskets? For the spacer? I can order another gasket set while I'm ordering the spacer. Are you an undercover sales agent for treats? LOL.

Haha it may seem that way, just in case you do need it apart for any reason. Wasn’t saying you needed to order them from treats that’s why I said paper gasket. I gave up buying them long ago. Cutting your own is the best way forward

Lee, case matching has to be done with pretty much any kit.

OK, I did some reading and the concensus is it's not 100% necessary, but highly beneficial. I will see how it looks on my stock motor. I want to try it out with that motor while I build another motor that I don't mind cutting on.

I'll be doing things one at a time. 15mm Bing, Air Filter, Circuit Pipe, last will be the Polini. Want to introduce changes slowly. Too much too fast makes it hard to diagnose problems. I'll be setting this up very conservative at first, keep it rich and 16 degrees on timing, done with a proper light.

Cutting of the boost ports at the top is a must or or you could seize

The gasket that comes with the kit will show you how to cut, it doesn’t have to be very deep at all just a little bit to let some gas mix to get in there!

OK, I'll keep reading, and see how it looks. I really don't want to tear that case down before winter. If I can do it without tearing it apart I'll try. Need to wait for next sale to get a Stuffed ZA50 crank and the bits to do the rebuilds. I have 3 motors that need to be rebuilt, so lots of practice to do. But one is running good, so I don't want to mess with it much until I have another one in good shape.

My big Treats order came early, so I can play with the python pipe and other goodies this weekend. Getting Maxi Sport#2 on the road so my wife can buzz the town with me. Lots of old tires to replace and grease to scrub. Woo hoo!

laying some plastacine / clay or in the uk we call it blu-tack in the bottoem end to stop metal filling the crank. you should be able to do quite a lot insitu with the crank suffed with cray/playdoh

Well, I bought the Polini 65c for better or worse.

Proceeding carefully with a full ZA50 rebuild.
