Re: Haflinger Fuel Consumption - Larger Bore Engines

In theory, the only difference should be in torque. Engine speed should be governed with the governor to 4800rpm Max. Increased torque should mean things like less gear changes, (changes in speed on hills etc.) BUT to be honest i can't see that you will get a huge increase in torque for the relative...

Re: Clutch issues today!

Lets hope that is the culprit - check the alignment between the two tubes as it fraying there suggests it has been rubbing on one or other of the edges of the tubes. Put the end of the new cable in the tube by a couple of inches, then start smearing the cable with grease, that way the end which come...

Re: NEED ASISTANCE looking for a chassis number

Simple way out if you have to swap transmission or engine. (or bodywork) Get a new blank plate and stamp your current numbers on it. Then if you have to inform the powers that be of the changes.
