    Yes - I always liked those carb mounts except you have to take them off to get @ the carb bolts.

    Dont forget to line up the marks for the oil adjustment cable. You can remove the black box in front of the engine and toss it now that you have open fa's.

    Its good that you took the initiative to do the work yourself but....
    All that sand right where the carbs come off is no good for carb removal/installation.

    From the looks of it you couldn't have put those carbs back on without getting some of that sand/dirt that is right on top of the reed insulator plate down inside the intake...not good imho!

    Just a few grains of Sand and or dirt in the crankcase can wear the bearings, cyl walls, piston skirts, and rings prematurely. Or when assembling get into the intake manifold gasket area and cause an air leak

    Next time before you disassemble any part of the motor, secure some plastic bags over the flame arrestors and clean the engine first. Better yet clean that whole engine bay, its nasty.
    Best to keep your engine bay clean... flame arrestors are not air cleaners, even with your sandy dirty water socks on them. Clean it up and enjoy longer engine life.

    This is not a bash, just a little common sense tip... please take it as such.

    Yeah, the bay itself is dirty..

    As for the sand everywhere, don't worry, I didnt take offense - that's why I posted the pics!

    Believe it or not, that wasn't there when I put the carbs on.. While I was putting the exaust pipe to the manifold, there's some bolts you cant reach unless you remove the port engine mounts and tilt the motor to the right..

    I used a pipe through one of the lifting loops on the engine and the dirt came out of the pipe..

    No excuses for the engine bay though.

    I'm not using the oil injection any more, I completely removed the pump and hoses. Does that statement still apply?

    Finished getting it back together this evening and took it out..

    Started breaking in with 28:1 oil ratio in the tank.

    HOLY CRAP SMOKE EVERYWHERE

    It ran good, only got about 1/2 tank through it before it got dark and I had to put it up. only got to varying up to 1/2 throttle.

    I could tell it was running fat.. It could be the oil, it could be the mixture screws, it couild be the 125 mains I have in there.

    I'm gonna finish breaking it in before I go adjusting stuff.If someone has some suggestions, lay it on me
