    It is 30 degrees this morning here in Lacombe , WOW , that snuck in on me Have a Happy Spring Equinox 2023 Monday, March 20 Spring 2023 technically starts at 5:24 p.m. Eastern time Monday, when the sun will be moving directly over the Earth’s equator — the central line between the North Pole and the South Pole — bringing almost equal minutes of daylight and darkness all around the globe. That moment is widely known as the spring equinox, but some people call it the March equinox or the vernal equinox. Here are some other interesting facts about the first day of spring.
  5. I think I remember that , was it said " snow covered Can-Ams are magically delicious "
  6. If the wrist pin journal has a loose fit , the piston will wobble , which will in turn egg shape the bore , you won't get very long from a rebuild , I find it is about 100 hours of time ------ the wrist pin journal is the end of the connecting rod where the piston mounts , which the connecting rod is pressed onto the crank , very good chance you need a crank after 4 rebuilds that were short lived ----
  7. Hi Brava , Welcome to the forum >>>> I would ask , after being rebuilt 4 times >>> what you calling a rebuild ? was it all just upper rebuilds ? was the case ever split and cleaned out ? , was a new crank ever installed ? >>> if the connecting rod is loose , or trash is in the lower , a upper rebuild is not going to last
  8. Don't know where the old carb is , likely thrown away The fuel gauge and the clock / time are both flashing if that means anything I think I need to take the plastics off , cause I do see some chew marks under the front fender , on a green wire going to the power outlet >>>> I think I am going charge up my camera / scope and try to look before pulling it apart
  9. Hi Mel !! Help me out here , where to hook the meter up and how to perform this voltage test
  10. Maybe if I change the terminology from a backfire to a misfire ------- in this case I am about 99.9% sure it is not a timing problem , cause like I have said , the problem comes and goes , it will run perfect for a few minutes >>>> as far as I know timing doesn't do that , it is either out of time or in time , it can't fluctuate for long periods ----
