    Universal chain adjuster

    Old style shroud question

    Has anyone put an old style shroud from a points type engine on a newer style engine with electronic ignition? I have a newer 3.5 hp side popper and I would like to use a shroud I have from a hs40. It seems to fit but the starter cups and recoils are different. Any ideas?

    I have an HS 40 that I would like to freshen up. It has an aluminum cylinder that is lightly scored. I think the cylinder has worn to where it has little or no compression. I'm thinking that a .010 oversize piston and new rings will clean it up. Can the aluminum cylinder be bored? Everything...
