The fuel tank and screen cooler are currently not connected. The fuel tank is meant to be mounted under the screen cooler. The engine runs for about 15 minutes on just the carby bowl!


Hi Patrick,
What a beautiful sounding machine she is. How economical is that, 15 minutes on a bowl float bowl of fuel? Not many engines today with all their technology could reproduce those figures.
Cheers, John.
