Single carb for projct scrappy?

Postby nlovern » Fri Mar 13, 2015 10:53 am



Hi,
Hope everyone is ready for spring. getting my 85 1200 out this weekend for next week.
I was thinking about doing the single carb thing with Scrappy and I weas wondering about the old chevy 235 or 216 single barrel carbs. Are they to big CFM for the 1100? Whats the cheapest best carb I can use?
Got the replacement motor rad tp degrease and clean this weekend. Its hard to find time working 7 nights a week on 3rd at TRW automotive. Sigh spring sales up for the Ford Focus. Been around 9,000 steering gears a week n we cant do that many at all :0(
Got most of my ideas for project scrappy,some crazzzzzy ideas to.
One crazy idea is to add oil cooler,pickup from dipstick outlet, electric oil pump, then return line(S) back to various areas and add the black light dye to oil and put black lights under tank and the oil in the return lines will GLOW, will look like blood vesseles
Crazy??? Will it work?
I dream to much I guess.
Thanks everyone
Nathan Lovern,Va (Dreamer)

you might want to take a look at this, go onto eBay and type 301514382194 into the searchbox. it will bring up something that you might be interested in. here's one made for the GL1200..... 171717422576 by the way, what bike,(year, model and size) are your parts for sale being removed from?

ok, a lot of the parts from the 80-83 are interchangeable, can you post a pic of it?

I think unless its a race motor a oil cooler would be a waste seeing as how its already water cooled. You would be better off spending that time, money an energy on other parts of the bike. But that's just me thinking, its your project so have fun with it an keep us posted ! :D :D
