Bought a couple of things for my maxi a while ago (65 Metra cylinder (the new one), 15 SHA carb, tecno racing exhaust, hard clutch springs, "racing" DMP crankshaft, matched the ports of the cases to the cylinder). Ran the thing on stock 16 45 gearing, but I was rather dissapointed with the power I got. I woudlnt say it was extremely powerful, it lacked low end pull and coudlnt go past 40 mph.
So I said to myself, being an inexperienced little brat, lets get into some books, and try to really tune this bastard. Ended up reading alot of Graham Bell.
The first video of my little project is on youtube, but its basically me building the engine as I described, nothing too interesting or to involved really, maybe fine for watching while you sip your afternoon coffee...
my vid :)
The interesting part is yet to come.
Just to hype you up a little bit, here are some pictures. Im gonna take a closer look at compression, port timing, exhaust dimensions, intake header length and crankshaft balance factor.
