Re: Beverly Hillbillies

Whenever I buy a used trailer I do the same thing with the brakes and simply replace the entire backing plate with everything attached and then put on a new drum and I am done. I am never going to have to put brakes on that trailer again. Unless it is the one I use for my really heavy work. Same wit...

Re: Max Speed 35 mph

Veins? You in the medical field by any chance? The idle jet is a in the bowl and will sometimes fall out of the bowl. You have to be careful of that. It is about in the center and has a small pointed section sticking up. This is the piece that clogs along with the passages in the main body where the...

Re: Max Speed 35 mph

Never put E85 in anything other than an engine labeled specifically for it!! That is 85% alcohol!! You can run up to 10% ethanol in your engine with no problems other than some mileage penalty. Regular gasoline nowadays is allowed to have up to 10% ethanol.

Re: Max Speed 35 mph

That may be some of your issues. Old gas does not have to look old to give problems.

Re: Max Speed 35 mph

When you backed out the mixture screw how was it idling? Was it still smooth or was it stumbling? It is sounding like you are going to need to open up the carb and clean out the idle passages and set the float. When you are setting the idle mixture can you go from lean stumble to rich stumble and ho...

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

Yea, mine is just like that. The old one anyway, The new one doesn't really like them but she just gets in her bed and waits it out. Which was about 3:00am this morning when they ended. That a**hole is going to get a surprise down the road a bit. I still have quite a few quarter sticks left over fro...

Re: PROPULSION SYSTEM

Interesting even though they never really had a practical way to float the M-151 other than attached pontoons. And this system would be good in cleal, clean water but can you imagine what would happen in mud?!

Re: Transmission rebuild/cleaning

1st gear is low, you would normally start out in second gear. There is no 4 wheel drive low.

Re: Max Speed 35 mph

Set your idle mixture screw for best idle then back it out about a half turn and see if that takes care of the stumble. If not back it out another quarter turn. Changing the main jets will do nothing since these engines never run hard enough to use the full amount of gas from even the #28 jet. The e...

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

Well, I'm not even going to justify that tire remark with a response... You can look up and read the internet reviews with your morning coffee. Don't be so touchy! I will see if I can find the thread from a guy in Fla, who put those 10 plys on his trailer and they immediately blew out. That was why...

Re: Graves Mt 2020??

That would be just a little bit of a ride to get there for you Bucolic! About 3,000 miles worth!!! But you would definitely win the longest distance award.

Re: Beverly Hillbillies

Please tell me they aren't the Chinese specials on the tires? I have blown out more new Chinese tires than I have ever blown out worn old car tires on trailers. And we all know you should never use car tires on trailers, but I will use them before using new Chinese tires! IMG_0547.JPG 220 miles, 60l...
