I have spent the past 3 weeks developing a carburetor for the Silver Bullet (2 Cylinder, 4 cycle, 3/4 bore X 3/4 stroke) and Hercules (2 Cylinder, 4 cycle, 5/8 bore X 5/8 stroke). After building 14, I have a pair of nice ones that performs well and can be used on other similar sized engines. A desirable carburetor for this size engine has been practically unavailable. I believe most builders are unfamiliar with of the physics and dynamics involved with this type carb.
The 'Shores' carburetor, for lack of a catchy name, is a mechanically self compensating throttle type carb, made from bar stock. It is small enough that it does not overwhelm the engine.
I am willing to share the design with other builders in the form of a copyrighted 'Drawing Package' that includes a 11 x 17 drawings and typed construction suggestions for $3.00. The $3.00 will cover copying, shipping and postage within the USA.  5/8/2003
