STORAGE INSTRUCTIONS

Engines to be stored over 30 days should be completely drained of fuel to prevent

gum deposits forming on essential carbu-

retor parts, fuel filter, fuel lines and tank.

a. All fuel should be removed from fuel

tank. Run the engine until it stops from

lack of fuel. The small amount of fuel

that remains in the sump of the tank should then be removed by inverting

the engine.

b. While engine is still warm, drain oil

from crankcase. Refill with fresh oil.

c. Remove spark plug, pour 1 ounce of

crank

SAE-30 oil

into cylinder and

slowly to distribute oil. Replace spark

plug.

d. Clean dirt and chaff from cylinder, cyl-

inder head fins and blower housing.

SECTION IV ADJUSTMENTS (Cont'd)

REMOTE THROTTLE CONTROL

Top speed of the engine is controlled by the governor. All other speeds from idle to top speed are controlled by a remote con-

Remote throttle control cables should have approximately 3 /4 " travel from idle to full

throttle. Installation should be as illus-

trated above. For adjustment instructions

see form MP 4262 that is furnished with

all "Kart" engines.
