Snowing like crazy all day.

The naked stroker is looking good in its new home. Runs good. Sounds strong and snappy. It felt good driving up the street on the snow...but not a very accurate gauge on the new power.

New harness and flasher. I like the emblem anti-theft device(aka vise-grips) Smile

I just happened to have some new wipers in stock. The motor is 6 volt...so its on hyper mode with 12volts running through it. Use it momentarily only. I can put a voltage drop in it later... I couldn't find one today.

Dan bus is back in the shop for a quick fuel pump change this morning.

The naked stroker was set-up for electric fuel pump. SO, I didn't mess with it, installed an electric pump and called it good.

Sitting outside over night and testing cold start-up, found that the fuel pump would stick when cold. ](*,) I could install another electric pump....but we prefer mechanical fuel pumps on our tractor engines....so I'm going to swap it to mechanical. Simple and effective.

I'll save it for your next aircooled engine Smile

Easier to test and fix fuel issues from the engine bay.

The Naked Stroker never missed a beat all the way to Havasu and back. No down shifting nessarry.
