You probably won't get much help here, as we throw 1GG engines in the scrap heap.
(probably where your engine came from)
Like your muffler mount, about what I would expect.

Good luck with your road worrier project...

Now go the fuck away.

1G has two intake ports per cylinder? That's kinda neat. I would run a 1G-GZE if I ever found one. It's MAP-based, so it wouldn't be hard to tune for a CT26 with a piggyback like an SAFC.

Your formatting is absolute shit though and I didn't read half of it.

One port per cylinder, with twin runners going to it, just like the shit 4AG.
It's nothing more than a baby 7M.
Are you suddenly slipping into old age, and senility, like me, and thinking you should have kept the 7M ?
