Zeneth Carburator upgrades????
I have been wondering if anyone has tried to upgrade from an old Zenith to a better carb and what would be the problems incountered other than the ones that stare you in the face fit,amount of gas delivered ect. I was thinking of a Makuni or one of the other motorcycle carbs The Atomic 4 is a updraft motor so what would make the diffrence as long as you had smooth fuel delivery.
Also while we are on the subject why do the Atomics only turn up 1700-2000 rpm the motor will rev much higher I have heard them and they must be reving 5500 or better but that was not under a load maybe a bigger fly wheel or a counter weight plate at the coupling if you could get 2500 out of it that would make allot of diffrence when pushing aginst a strong tide. Like At Seven Mile Bridge at Marathon leaving the Atlantic to the Gulf Side is a ripper of a current.
