Great info, thank you all.
Now in to my next question, where the mixture valve attaches to the engine. Should there be some kind of seal around it as mine is a very loose fit?

Mine just has a single screw clamping it to the side of the head and holds it tight. No gasket or sealing material used anywhere on my engine. The Baker Monitor was designed to be maintained by a farmer with the usual hand tools and not require any gaskets.

When we were looking at buying our first hit n miss engine we had a choice a Farm Pumper or a Monitor. We loved them both but couldn't buy both being on a limited budget. We bought the Farm Pumper and we always see the Monitor we left behind at nearly all the Rallies we go to. The guy who bought it has had very little trouble with it and we still like it a lot, enough to have made an offer on it to bring the two engines back together again. Unfortunately it wont be living with us for the foreseeable future but I will continue to "bat on".
