    There is ton of info and miss info out there about balance shafts, what they actually do, and the pros and cons. The vibration is generated because the movement of the conecting rods in an inline engine are not symmetrical throughout crankshaft rotation. Due to this the engine has an inherent...

  37. Size9Zombie

    2G Clutch options and basics

    6 puck describes the # of individual sections of the friction disc instead of having 1 360* disc, if u do decide on a puck disc for ur clutch u need to know that taking off from a stop it will "chatter" i have a 2600 in my 1g and it works great i love it, u need to atleast resurface the flywheel
