I don't see any reason to get new heads unless yours are blown out or have other issues.

Most guys should be using one just to help their deck height out. The extra .0196" will help a bunch espe ...

Hey Joel,

If its a stockish engine......use a stock crank. Amazing quality, easy, and pretty cheap. Get it all balanced, and it will work great.

On your engine, what are you using for carbs? ...

I have had really good luck with Amsoil straight 30wt break-in, and the provided cam paste. I used to use the Brad Penn break-in with no problems. I never added anything.

wheres the intake hose attached to?

It goes down through the stock pre-heat hole and sucks in hot air from the cylinders and header area under the tin.

I did this a long time ago. It made a huge difference keeping the carb and the top of the manifold warmer.

You cannot blame the stock flywheel connection without knowledge of history of the failure. Some guys can break a crowbar in a sandbox!

I am not blaming a shitty mechanic, or abuse, just pointing o ...

I have never built an engine WITHOUT doing the 8 dowels, but I have taken apart quite a few bone stock 4 dowel engines with messed up cranks and flywheels.

Most all cams are stamped with a number on the oil pump end. If it is not stamped, it might be a regrind.

See what number is on it and report back.

The right cam can make or break an engine. ...

More importantly... Can that 122/125 run ok with single HD springs?

Heads aren't here yet, so just the one question so far.

Not a chance. Duals for sure. The 122 has pretty quick ramps.

Leave it all together and keep squirting stuff in the cylinders. The ATF/acetone mix is good. So is Kroil. Squirt some in each plug hole once a week.

Do not get the Engle 110, and the Web 110 confused. Very different cams! One is boring and uneventful, and the Web 110 is a really good grind that can make some power.
