    "Large" or "Small" Cone for GP?

    The reason for the confusion you are having is that the name of the flywheel refers to the type of flsnge on the flywheel, and the size of IT's cone... Not the size of the cone on the crankshaft it is suited for.

    The flywheel on the left it Li. Thats a large cone and refers to the height of thst flange. Its taller and as a result has a larger cone. The reason is for the narrower taper on the li crank. Right is gp. Short small flange to accomodate the fat tapered gp crank. If you received a small cone flywhel you got a gp flyhweel.

    If you were told you have a large cone flywheel it’s probably for Li/sx and the “large cone” refers to the flange in the flywheel being the longer type for the li cranks. The GP is short cone type.

    Post a photo of the inside of the flywheel and show us the flange for the taper. For gp it’s a shorter flange than the li in order to accommodate the wider crank taper. I agree it’s confusing at times.

    It’s a hardened piece Dave. You need the correct part.

    Jet200 rebuild

    Check the rivets in the clutch spider to see that they are tight, and that the proper shim is in the gearbox.

    Air leak. Big time air leak.

    This highly reputable person who built the engine... did you have them do this work for you? Why are they not stepping up and getting this dealt with for you? I don’t need / want an answer to these questions but I’m putting this out there

    Figure out where the leak is once the cylinder and piston is fixed. Change your carb set up. It’s WAY too much.

    30 carb is also WAY too big for a standard cylinder deannspeed 190. WAY TOO BIG! 25 carb is the biggest I’d go for that set up. We also don’t know what exhaust you have. I’m not a fan of dean speed piston set up for many reasons. I’ve seen SO MANY fail. In my opinion the cylinder walls are too thin on a 190 from a 150 or 175 cylinder to dissapate heat properly. I do not recommend going over 175 on a 150 cylinder (I know I’ll hear feedback on this... I’m entitled to my opinion though. ) But you have what you have. Take the cylinder off and inspect it. Hopefully you can get away with a new piston. There is not much room for oversized ones in that set up.

    You are having much more than a carb issue. Get ready to rebuild that engine. You have been experiencing heat seizures and the engine is racing at a stop because of an air leak somewhere... check cylinder head, intake manifold, loose carb, worn or holed air hose, loose exhaust header, magneto flange leak, oil seals, or cylinder base gasket. time to get busy tearing that engine down My guess is the piston, cylinder, possibly the crank and bearings and seals are no longer any good after the heat seizures Get yourself a new Sticky manual and you will learn a lot about what your are going to be working on good luck with this where are you located?
