I Hagar drive without the top cover ---- do I go on gravel roads ? ---not often and only slow.
In this area one more (not mine) broke a belt and beat the hell out of the valves. That is two
in the last two month ? The guy sold the Rabbit to a friend of mine for a 100 dollars.
At least keep the bottom cover on.
I collect the old broken belts ---- and not one so far has the steel belting inside.
PS: to do Hillbilly TUNING ----the top belt cover best be left off. It is a tideous procedure
but well worth doing. Remember 1 degree on pump is two degrees on crank. Very
small adjustment makes a LOT of difference. Bunny Bondos cover is still off
two years now. ----still TUNING. ----due to change in fuel quality.And running
super lean mixture ----makes for hard starting in the cold mornings.
