Maytag runs and hits hard


Hello guys I have three model 92 engines restored and two of them run great. The third is a 1929 long frame that runs ok but it is a little harder to start and when it runs it hits really hard and is loud when it hits. Every time the muffler pops it is loud. Is this the timeing ?

Contact Mark Shulaw, and send him your mag mount assembly (Plate and all. he can set it properly. Not quite a job you can do at home. He is here on the Stak
