    Intermediate jet size ain't your problem. But you may not have the optimum size selected yet. 45, 48, or 50 will usually satisfy a shovel motor.

    No original brake drum was chrome.

    The 41400-67 is listed as a brake drum with sprocket. My guess is the other one is a bare drum.

    '81 front forks have tapered tubes which socket into the top tree, and there is no height spec.

    The rear motor mount location is the same on the '81 as on the earlier motors. The change in mount location was in '82 as far as I know, so you are OK there.

    It could definitely be that HI-4, or the coil malfunctioning when warm.

    It's small. I use one strand from stranded electrical wire to probe those holes, and small holes like intermediate jets. Solvent and air pressure will get it eventually.
