Re: Gas additive

Yes I am, it doesn't have any kind of oil so I think it's eating up the O Rings in the fuel injection

Re: 520 fuel injection pros and cons

I have fuel injection on my 520 and I love it, I've been around hot rods since I was eleven I'm 64 today, you have to learn your motor and how to start it, how many times to pump the gas. Just find someone who understands them to install it.

Re: 520 GITSO Electronic Ignition

First thing is you will spend a lot of money on the electronic set up , if you lose your batteries for some reason you Are done, with mags you could hand prop it , mags are the best way to go in my book, racing is different.

Re: 520 Rods

Yes with counter weights that is why the crank broke on it in the first place, and a well known builder left them off. And yes the rod's are beefier, use to building car motor's.
