    I recently purchased a completed Silver Bullet from an estate sale. I know that buying a completed one is cheating, but I don't have the time nor the skill to make one myself. I paid 170 for it so I don't think i got hurt on the deal. The problem is that being that I bought it at an estate sale, all I got was the motor and the cobbled together ignition setup. No paper work, nothing but the motor. So I have a lot of basic questions. What type of fuel? What type of oil? etc. I would also like to know if there is an exploded view of it or assembly instructions? I have been fighting every urge in my body not to take it apart. I really want to take it apart and see if all the internals are kosher but fear that i will miss something when taking it apart and put it back together wrong. Then bad things would happen when I would attempt to start it. If you can point me in the right direction to gather this information, it would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time

    Hello Adam

    I run my engines on unleaded gas with 5% WD40 added to the gas. I run a light oil in the crank case. 10W-30. Bob Shores recommended 10% for break in and 5% after that for all his engines.

    I have the complete plans and there is no exploded views or assembly instructions, just drawings so the individual parts can be made.
    Thank you for the information. If you are offering the plans i will gladly accept but if you aren't just forget i said anything. I will probably try to get it started up this weekend. thanks again
    If you want a set of plans you might be able to get a set from Bob Shores web site. Wont hurt to ask.
