    I will gladly exchange some funds for the crank./rods, your time and shipping costs. :p :p

    Apparently not. I found a few threads where people bypassed the pump because their pump died, and they seemed to have issues at high RPM. There's only maybe 2" of head to the carbs, the recess on the bottom of the tank is really large.

    We're going to find out in a week or so. I somehow blew up the CDI brain by jump starting the bike with a car battery, so I had to source another.
    Still have to figure out the whole tail light/undertail situation as well.

    Tin foil hat on: people who prep for disasters secretly want them to happen and forment their occurence so they can be bad.

    my asshole is dirty, I have no food, someone stabbed me at Walmart and took the only case of water I could get. I only have beer and top ramen.

    I've been using carb cleaner to clean my bunghole

    This is the end.

    lol

    Seriously tho, when something more serious goes down, this fucking country is going to turn into an apocalyptic shitshow.

    I see b27's go for nearly free all the time (~$100 or less). I just want their rods and cranks lol.

    Consider that 5 years ago M42s were pretty much free, and now 500+ providing that the crank damper is in place. Heck, people even pay real money for B27s.

    I would say $700 for a know used unit is pretty average. I charge $650 for a core when building them. Being in the biz, though, I can't tell you how many m20's were given to me over the years - the heads are getting thin, but there's probably 15 of them here in various stages that are mine, then a bunch of customer work. A friend just gave me a complete b25 when he sold his house and down sized.

Did he go through all that trouble for maybe 100$ profit???
    Idiots... Im glad you got your moneys worth out of it.

    Melon Give it a month or two

    Fucking virus and tanking economy.

    Looks like I'm stuck with a Corvette.

    Sportbike crap, forgot about how the wraparound tanks and angled carbs put the sump is lower than optimal for gravity feed. Not having sportbikes for a while has spoiled me with how simple everything is on normal bikes.

    A (remotely modern) car's tank is always lower than the carbs, most motorcycles not so much. The carbs only need a few inches of fuel pressure head to operate with a typical motorcycle carb so no pump in any case where the sump is higher than the carbs. Just forgot about the shape of the tank and how high the carbs are.

    Consequently, it should run fine with no pump as long as you keep the tank full

    A pressure washer needing a fuel pump is just poor design gravity feed or gtfo unless it's some big commercial thing.
