Kirk Verhey: are lash settings same on a 2.5 clone? 0.003 exhaust and 0.002 intake?
mxracing6: That's a neat trick with the rope.
Wow, I just learned something today, cool.
Chris Moore: What is a video you are wanting to see a HOW TO done on regarding the 6.5
Kyle Saletta: He puts the rope in so your valves don't fall down towards the engine head
when your compressing the spring to put the cap or retainer onto the valve
stem. it just makes it a lot easier
MotoVox: Very informative!
mowerman32000: there is a easyer way to do that
Tim Peterson: I understand that at "top dead center" the exhaust valve is set at .003...
My question is to set the intake valve at .002.... where does the piston
need to be at? thanks
andrew Hoouk: Say I'm doing a complete rebuild on a similar engine, and I'm wondering is
there a valve retainer cap for the intake valve as well?
Benjamin Young: my question is why only change one? You cant say the springs are expensive
or to complicated! also what other mod tips do you have i am trying to
start a go kart class with 6.5 at my local track here in bako?
Akin Orhan: can you oil your valves?
Donald Jackson: man i wish changing briggs animal springs were that easy. i have to rent a
spring tool and i have little keepers to keep track of. i do have a clone
on my mini bike so this should help thanks for the vid
thekygooseman: Does that spring Change make much of a difference in performance
Benjamin Young: By the same you are talking about the steps right i was under the
impression that the intake was at .002 for the lash? When it comes to the
flywheel whats the average price and is there any way to find used ones. so
far my 196cc greyhound has uni intake 6", agk 3 stage exhaust, 18lbs
springs, also gx140, e-tube and #92 on main jet that sits on my 1994
wildkart frame. i feel like im headed the right way but i want the flywheel
zach capps: are u shure .003 is that to tight if not i should do that then mine should
Chris Moore: Yes I am sure...
Scott McGraw: Could you do a video on a rod install with out taking the piston out? Could
you also do a video on NR racing stage one hop up kit installation. Thanx
andrew kelly: where did you get the spring from and how much
TheAssassin111: Is it safe to use a straight pipe on a clone with stock valves?
Codywombat: what increase does the 18 lb valve spring inprove because I want more
compresion in my engine
Ashley Reel: got stage two hop up kit coming next week and this was just what I was
looking for. thanks big help
adamyon16: Hey I got a problem with my valves I replaced the springs and now the
exhaust valve is clicking and only opening a tiny bit then after it clicks
it opens all the way?? I put up a video it's called "6.5hp clone valve
problem" plz help me out???
mark stanton: This can b done WITHOUT backing off the rockers by just sidestepping the
Hooverdarnit: What does the rope supposed to do? Is this much different than changing the
spring(s) in a GY6 150cc scooter engine? Ity has two springs per valve, A
smaller one inside a larger one. Do you know anything about a GY6 engine?
171apples171: Wow replacing valve springs and removing the retainers is a snap in them
OHV engines. I usually work on 1960's 4-5hp briggs and strattons and it can
be a pain sometimes to get them retainers back on. especially when all you
have a a pair of needle nose pliers and a flathead screwdriver :D
zyplex1: Most cases, the only way to replace a valve seal or a broken spring without
pulling a cylinder head off , is to place the piston at TDC and fill the
cylinder with compressed air. That's how I do it.
Usernameinvalid16: Always do Intake at .003 and Exhaust at .004 or .005. I keep my Exhaust at
.004 for Lots of top speed and for some Ridiculous Low End torque i use
.005 of and inch.
Scott Douglass: I'm having problems starting it, I got it for free and its not starting I
put gas and oil and cleaned the spark plug and the guy said it worked. so
Jake Edge: hey, I'm trying to increas my hp on a mudmotor with this same engine, Im
buying the hop kit for it... I pretty much get everything with the springs
and the govener. But whats the reason with the cord inserted into the motor
and why are you pullin the start cord to move the piston? is it bad to do
it with out oil like that? Im not very mechanically inclined so Im trying
to learn all of this before I dive into it... Thanks!
jonsims21: great video
yaboy520: Hey man cool video just picked up a couple of Harbor Frieght motors. I want
to removed the govenors on them and was wondering what parts would I need
to change to keep them from blowing. TIA
Bill Snow: Very helpful. Thanks for posting. Do you plan on posting more videos for
the clone engine?
DeepFriedFuzzball: @midnightwaffels Your engine could have a number of faults, first of all
check to see if there's a spark, if not it could be the cut off switch is
broken, there isn't enough oil in the engine or the oil sensor has failed,
or the ignition / spark plug is faulty. If it sparks, check the carb, make
sure it isn't clogged etc, and test with a drop of fuel in the cylinder and
see if it fires. Also check the valves and make sure the engine has enough
compression. hope that helps :]
cat123456789101: are you vette from OMB
Morris Miller: do you need to use the rope even if your only adjusting the valves?
jmrhsdrummer: thank you! very descriptive.
Benjamin Young: pulling the cord like that is not going to do any thing he was just doing
it to move the piston if he was the hulk and could pull it at idle
rpm(revolutions per minute) then maybe.
TIYX: @giffy5775 to prevent the piston from moving.
BigBoredBaby: why the hell would you need the rope?
cat123456789101: @cjz89civic cool, im cat123456789101
zyplex1: For you guys asking what the rope's purpose is, I thinking to prevent
dropping a valve in your cylinder. By having the piston TDC plus the rope
northerbrewer: @matt127mia You should not use 18 pound springs without a racing flywheel
and billet rod. Accidents with ungoverned engines are messy.
Chris Moore: A lot goes into upgrading. Recheck timing on cam, timing on flywheel (check
the keyway), with the valve cover off check and see if the valves are
moving, check lash. Check for spark, check for gap on coil to flywheel,
check carb did you forget a gasket? Heavy modified motors are a pain to get
started at first, once tuned in they are easier, but still a pain to start.
Hope that something helps.
Chris Moore: The springs will raise the RPM's of the engine, but with out the proper
parts, you will blow the motor.
1ThomasFamilyRacing: FYI. I got 5600 out of my son's clone. no gov., K&N ,small track, 12-78
gear (muffler got knocked off half way thru the race) and a 90 jet.
digitron showed 210 degrees. I know that we "should" have better parts in
it but that is against the rules, dumb huh.....
giffy5775: Why did you put 2' of rope in the engine?
Ryan S: is really worth all the trouble if i just ride mine around the yard? I took
my governor off.
Ashley Reel: installed engine up grade and motor will nor start? any ideas?
hoturpo123456: I have a Loncin that has lash caps on both valves
Rob D: Quick question: The roto valve caps you take off at 3:08. Are these on both
valves or just the inlet? Cheers, Rob
