I picked up an xi a month ago with a major oil leak from the engine. So now the engine is torn out. What do you guys suggest I do to the xi? It will be a worker

Yes. I am waiting on a new complete gasket kit for it

I agree with Craig on the decals. I repainted my 520lxi and got the decals from Terry. Always top quality.

How’s it run?  By the way, other than boost referenced fuel system, do you play with the jetting too, or is that a secret?

So far I've used adjustable carbs and have had no issue

It’s maybe not real original 😂 i guess....

 

but things you changed looks really Bad Ass, curious for Soundcheck please Sir. 😎

 

Btw: 

Ain’t you use an Oil temp gauge to take care of your Engine ?

 

I did a lambda adjustment ahead with a simple System on my Bike, 

but this System isn‘t available anymore.

Actually they very cheap to buy, but are good enough, to get a usable Value for adjustment,

but i think you did it allready?

 

That‘s a real cool Sleeper, i like the Style 👍

Nice.  I have a turbo off a 1.0 Ford Focus that is in need of a new home, most likely on a Kohler M18.  What did your turbo come off of?

I probably will.  Who wouldn't want to see a 520H that has been pieced together from multiple tractors, powered by a Kohler from a Cub, with a turbo from a Ford?

Have to wait for parts for the buffer. It ate the cord.
