Hey Jon,
Well after a long delay the money was deposited directly into your account today. Sorry about how long it took and thanks for the engine and all your help and patience,
Sorry and thanks again,
Brett
ps-the engine seems to be running fairly well-it needs a new distributor and some plugs(rough idle)-it may be leaking oil(any idea were that could be coming from?)other then those things it seems good.

as far as the oil leak goes the only thing I can think of would be the front seal. I did plugs and wires on it when I got it but that was two years ago so it might be time for some new plugs. if you still have your old motor I might try to switch carbs to fix the rough idle. but thats all I can think of for now.

Don't run the carb that it came with.
You can't lay an carb on it's side and shake it for a 1000 miles and expect it to run properly. All the sediment and crap lying in the float bowl will find it's way into all the small orifices.
You should run the other carb or rebuild the one that came with the motor.

My orginal carb is on the engine but the engine is leaking major oil(since Tuesday it has gone threw over 4 litres)
Iam going to go through and do all the bolts up again tommorow and maybe I'll locate the leak.
