Thanks for all the useful information on this site, it is very helpful. I am restoring a LGT 145, and I have run across a couple of issues. There is insulation on the hood and side panels, do you replace this or leave it off? also I have noticed block off plates on some K series fuel pumps, what do they use? Does anyone use mild hop up on the K series for normal yard work, and how does it effect reliability of the engine. Thanks in advance.
