    HSSK40 vs. HSSK50

    I have two Rupp RR2's and have HS40, HS50 and HSSK50's (with larger HS40/50 exhaust valves) I did not find any difference in driving performance between them. I swapped the engines, carburetors and different tuning settings more than once trying to get the fastest one on my bike, the only...

    The bikes are still in excellent condition and running good my purple R2 has the HS50 with iron cylinder, ARC rod, balanced, Dyno cam with good springs, custom oversize stainless exhaust pipe and Dellorto carb I really like the performance with that bike. We didn't get to ride them this year my...

    HS40 RUPP part 2

    That's cool! A few years ago when my wife and I had our Roadster 2"s registered we would go to local car shows they were just as popular as the cars and we didn't enter them in the show.

    HS50 crankshaft question.

    HS50 tecumseh - change exhaust valve size?

    Only about 2 years late for this reply, no I didn't run the HS-50 with the smaller exhaust valve I was looking for higher RPM's. I did build one earlier block HS-50 at the end of my Rupp projects had it iron sleeved, milled the head, Dyno cam, ARC rod, balanced, Dellorto carb, enlarged exhaust...

    Quieter shop compressor

    Interesting idea, I have an Ingersol-Rand industrial T-30 with a filter/dryer/cooler system I have two different intake locations one in the shop for normal use and one up above the shop for a fresh air mash when painting big projects. The round air filter has been removed for less restriction...

    Block Machine Work

    Final Update Yesterday I took the Rupp out for a couple of mile ride speed was good I still had some oil blowing out the crankcase/valve cover vent and vibration issue was a little better. I changed the valve cover to the type with a rubber hose to see if that would stop the oil from blowing...

    Tecumseh, Dellorto, slide carbs, Black Widow

    The price of a Dellorto UA-19S is high because few are available and for someone restoring a Rupp Black Widow or other that needs one to be original the price is what it is. Slide valve carburetors perform better on the top end and still work at low speeds unlike a throttle plate carburetor that...

    Dellorto UA-19S Help
