Do you have a tach or a dwell meter you can use for a tach to see what RPMs you're actually running? The idle on these is pretty low 600 or 650, and they top out not alot over 2000. To be honest,I'm too lazy to look it up.Exhaust note wise, at full throttle, they'll sound like they're running about the same speed as a idling Nissan or or other OHC 4 cylinder. Wide open is about 1/3 the RPMs or less than a little rice rocket 4 cylinder in a car.
PS: My compliments to whoever raised you. A 15 year old rebuilding a tractor is almost unheard of these days. If you don't get it going, give a holler. I go through Jacksonville now and then, and would help ya out if need be.
