Re: Sears Allstate tires?

I found 6 Allstate 19” to use as rollers on my project
The 2 spares had never seen the road
An inner tube had a date of 1976
The 2 spares did have a slightly wider white wall

Re: Timing issues, Bosch magneto/ laurel cylinder head

Is it running any type of exhaust system? Sure sounds like a plugged up exhaust

Alot of friction and no ring seal
