Interesting you mention the carb. I have fixed up many old single cylinder engines, over the years. You may have to make up an adapter plate, but it is often cheaper, and better in the end, to buy a carb for a newer engine. Many can be found on E-bay for $10 to $20 range. A carb kit would cost the same, or more, and often has rubber parts that do not work well with the new gas we have.People laugh at Lada's but put a decent carb on the old ones you have an instant rally car.
Eyes wide open and you can get some good buys.
I stuck an SU carb on a WL Harley, no other engine tweaks and the stock mph went from 75 to 99mph (wouldn't quite hit the magic ton)Interesting you mention the carb. I have fixed up many old single cylinder engines, over the years.
