Congratulations - Hope the new motor still has the '53 Cam Cover. It was the best looking one of all of them.

A buddy brought over a M74B last night, I need to get a rebuild kit. I did not use a insulator block on my other bike with linkert & had no problems. My question is about the insulator, do you guys think they help that much and should be used?

It looks like the Main Nozzle may have been drilled a bit compared to some other pics of them, the two bottom holes.... hmmm....

looks like it.
the book says they should be equally sized on this type jet.





that is if i read this correctly...
this type B nozzle (what i think it is from your picture) doesn't seem to belong inside an M74?

i like this build a lot! can't wait to see pictures with the engine in

Fred! Thank you for taking the time to post up that info. One can never have enough books, now that I have two pans with Linkerts it would be a good idea to have The Linkert Book. Thanks again!

New nozzle is on the way with some other carb parts. Here it is on the bracket, just trying to ruff it in to see how things line up....

Nice Pan motor. Looks like all fins are present and accounted for. I like its silvery goodness...and the bug eyes.

It's coming together quite nicely...
That motor is the perfect addition...
I'm looking for a small battery also,
so will be interested in what you
end up with.
Aloha,
Willy

Here are the batteries Willy, same in size, their size is about two cigarette packs side by side. One of them is more powerful, I need some help to decide what one to get for a kick only w/ points.

I'm (slowly, unfortunately) redoing my '62, it's a kick start, joe hunt mag and a battery eliminator setup, but was pretty scary sometimes as it got dark, getting the lights to lite up, and the brake lites never worked in the day, as there was too much delay getting the battery eliminator to crank up enough voltage (excite the fan cooled 6 v generator to put out??) to lite up the brakes, so want to add a battery to that setup, mainly for daytime brakes. One of these should do the job. I guess it's finally time to convert to 12 v also....
Aloha,
Willy

NOTE:
I just checked the Antigravity web site, they have a 6 v Li-Ion battery, wonder how well that would work with my current setup??

^ Very interesting, Maybe someone can chime in that knows if the 6 volt added could help with your setup.
I'm thinking either of those 12 volt batteries should be ok for me.

The 6v "battery eliminator" I'm using is quite old, early electronics, and there may be much better ones available these days, but they may only be 12v also.
I think if I get a modern 6v voltage regulator, toss the "battery eliminator", and just use one of these batteries, as there would be only lites and brakes using the electrical system, the ignition would still be the Joe Hunt mag, that it would work just fine, so I'm heading in that direction. I'll start a new thread on that, as some others might have similar questions about the older 6v systems.
