Battery neg goes directly to the engine. On mine, there's a bolt by the clutch for this.

Slonomo,

What kind of opening did u make for your ignition switch? It mounts a little different than what I was expecting.

No problem putting the Briggs switch where the old one was...

Looking GOOD Dave. I like the gages. My ignition is just a little different and slightly bigger. I believe its the same one Slonomo is using.

Took cart out for a spin today and I am not impressed. Infact I am sadden by the turn of events. I downloaded a speedometer to my phone I never saw anything above 15 MPH but it held that speed for as long as I wanted. Looks like I may have gotten up to 17mph.

I need to dial in the throttle adjustments and that is what I am going to use the rpm meter for. At what RPS should it idle? At what RPM should it be at wide open throttle. The Motor is brand new and bone stock with governor.

pic 1 is where my spring returns throttle disc / lever to

pic 2 is where I start to hear a little change in motor pitch (RPM change) is this pretty normal. seems like a lot of play there.

pic 3 is wide open. With my current throttle linkage set up, I don't think I am hitting wide open throttle.

pic 4 is how I am driving it today.

Also notice that under manual full throttle the drive belt does not make it all the way to the top of either pulley.

Any Ideas on what I can do to dial the throttle in?

Figuring it out as I go I guess. Got my linkage figured out so that I can achieve full throttle. I had to remove the gas pedal and manipulate the bolt shown in the photo to increase the travel of the gas pedal. I had to remove a bushing and tighten the bolt down further and remove the gas pedal stop sensor, I hope its not needed. Has anyone else had to do this?

pic 1 is wide open throttle, notice where the drive belt is position. Is this position about where it should be for W.O.T.??

Yeah that switch has kind of a square hole, I used a large round paddle bit then reshaped it with a file. It took a little work but wasn't bad, trial and error.

Sounds like your throttle might not be opening all the way. One way to check is to remove all the air filter stuff and have someone push on the pedal, look at the throttle linkage and compare that with how wide the throttle is opening. Also, on mine there was a little nub on the carb that was acting like a throttle stop, preventing it from opening all the way. I just used a grinder very carefully to knock that off. If your governor is still hooked up, you might have to play with the throttle adjustments and stronger springs to get the throttle action the way you want.

It's been a long time since I used one of the old rpm/dwell meters. Not sure how that will work on a single cylinder.
