Thats odd, the fuel filler pipe is on the opposite side than mine is.

There're more engines with the fill pipe at that side. Officially it belongs at the mag side.

My fill pipe was on the govenor side when I tore it down but when I put it all back together it seemed to line up better on the Mag side so thats where I left it. But now I am wondering why it was on the gov side in the first place. Did it have anything to do with the fact that my engine used to be on a hay press?

Bob I live close to small town called Terrebonne, OR. The area is known as Crooked River Ranch, and is the largest un-incorporated community in the State. (Abt. 4500 people kidds included). the area is called high desert country (Abt. 3000 to 4200 ft.) Also the ranch is located on a peninsula beteen the Deschutes river and the Crooked River before they flow into Lake Billy Chinook. P.S. It was 26 d. f. this morning @ 6:00 AM
