    Engine was built by Kermit Buller. It comes with duel HL-360 alky carbs, 30mm 19-T engine belt driver, Buller KB-06 pipe & header. Total time on 54.1mm piston 2hrs. Total time on engine from open build 2.58hrs. The time includes all engine run time. (engine warm up, track time, & run time on kart stand to purge engine with Mystery oil). I live in mid Mi.

    On track clip: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0PDWD6XONmk

    In this clip max RPM was 15,600. That day we ran it with conservative setup, & carb needles on the rich side. Do to 1st day we ran it the kart being new & the engine fresh from Buller we seized the piston coming out of a tight corner. Carb needle setting error on my part, & over excitement of son (driver) not looking at head temp & fatting needles. Had 58 mins on engine. The clip here was from 1st day of running with new piston the carbs needles were set on the rich side. After that day I worked on chassis setup, changed axle from 40mm/med to a 50mm/hard & added seat braces. Set the carbs up leaner. The next day out we running 3-4 tenths a lap faster. This engine needs to be running on a kart, not setting in my garage collecting dust…Ron
