Well me thinks me found the rpm issue .... looks like the head gasket gave it up, didn't see any failure in the gasket it self but it was definitely leaking and washed that part clean. Now it didn't have much carbon in there either? It didn't use any oil at all . I'm wondering if I should tear it down completely or just surface the head and put a new gasket on it?

I'd try just the new head gasket for now if there were no 'funny' noises going on.

No noises, it is actually a very smooth and quiet rig but has been getting a whipping lately and I don't want any catastrophes! I saw enough of that Saturday!Maybe I'll pull it and give it a once over? I need to get all the gaskets first!

That would probably be the best move, considering what you are doing with it!

Do they still make the oil pan gasket for these? I forgot to take down all the numbers off the engine so I can get the correct goodies doh!

Shouldn't be that hard to find a pan gasket for it.

Several different ones here!

Well the local small engine shop down the road from my house had a head gasket so I cleaned about .010" off the head to clean it up as it had a slight warp . Now he runs like a champ and the governor seems to be functioning wonderfully. Alls good for now

Glad to hear that, Keith! Just be sure to re torque those bolts.

Been a silly week so far, wedding anniversary today (4 years ) so today is out of the question, maybe Tomorrow? I need to run the 125 for a bit and re-torque the head before I can put the nose back on. Then Saturday is also wasted ... wife is hosting a get to gether of all her Russian friends, best part is the food and drinks ;) oh and the girls are very easy on the eyes too lol .

Best way to drink Russian Standard Vodka : with a dill pickle! Hands down!!
Step 1: place vodka in freezer over night ( must be cold!!)
Step 2: poor shots
Step 3: take dill pickle and smell it or a nibble if the sniffer isn't working .
Step 4: down shot, it will go down with out a burn if freezing cold.
Step 5: immediately chase with the pickle!
If you don't like dill try another flavor? We also like pickled cherry tomatoes for this as well lol
So go have snort, it'll cure what's ailing ya for a little while at least lol.
