Default Engine Angle Question



Ok, putting 351W into this ranger. Engine is 'reclined' about 2 degrees with angle finder on a flat spot on the carb. What are these usually set at? If I could go up some (Say 4 degrees), I could raise it slightly more and give more bump travel.

Any advice? Thanks.

I don't know about that specific engine, but typically engines in trucks are between 2 and 5 degrees (front up) 4 degrees should be OK.

Yes between 2 and 5 for proper bearing alignment.

If you were really so frivolous wouldn't your brake fluid reservoir be clean and wouldn't you would be going with a dry sump, propane fed motor?
