I knew if I got them running they would not disappoint. Once I got them both running they continue to run like a Honda. I am still getting parts off of Ebay for the '88 but she still runs great and does a lot of work around my small 5 acres. Damn those plastic pieces are getting $$$. I just can't pull the trigger on $150 side plastics, the ones with the petcock hole, jeez. I have '95 Foreman rims on the '87 and I am getting fond of the extra track width. Should I keep them or just go with the '88 rims and sorry powder coating I did by myself?
Also, the 2001 is getting a drop of oil on the exhaust on the left side and for the life of me I can't find were it is coming from. After running around a bit and it comes to temp, I smell the oil burning off and look down to see a freshly deposited oil drop...? I will post a pic of it later.
I tried a couple methods to upload pictures and none of them appear to be working. If there are half dozen pics then sorry...
I prefer the stock rims but it's what you prefer. The newer rims have a different offset which results in the rears sticking out; I don't know that it upsets the handling so much but it does throw more goo on you
