I was wondering if I can take this apart, clean it up for paint, and put it back together without buying a gasket? We're painting the engine on the cheap and I'm attempting to save the cost of a gasket set. My son is paying for all his own parts. I don't want to cost him money through my attempt to help him with his build... if that makes sense! The red circle is where the two manifolds join. I assume there is some kind of gasket there. The blue lines shows a rod that I assume has to do with prewarming the engine. Could I remove the rod altogether and throw it away? I will be putting an MC2100 on his engine... already have the carb.
We'll be posting up pics of the engine late tonight or probably tomorrow. He painted it silver and black with a red fan! Looks kinda cool! I'll get your feedback later.
Go Fish! <*////><
But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!
