Coffee Shop / rough track/ fuel pump ?
« on: July 30, 2013, 12:30:41 PM »
I was just wondering (on my 28 ohv) seems to run great on smooth track, but whenever running on rough track it sure misses alot, I feel it's a fuel issue, was wondering if putting a fuel pump on would cure this issue? If so what mods would I need to make to carb for this to work proper. Thanks in advance for advice and comments.

Coffee Shop / billet flywheel

 ok, on briggs 28ci, I really haven't been around this enough and thought I should ask before spending my money on the wrong thing, flathead and ohv require a different flywheel acording to what I understand. does the flathead with the flywheel that's held on with a nut, and the one that's held on bolt use the same flywheel? If I was to put a flathead crank with nut in ohv would I need ohv flywheel or flathead flywheel

Coffee Shop / grass cutter cub value?

I have come across a 2007, Cub Cadet LT1046, hydrostat, Kohler courage 23, less than 100 hrs, on a scare of 1 to 10 would say this mower is a 9.5 in condition. It has new battery, service records from going to dealer every fall when he was done for the year. This man's yard is smooth as silk so I'm sure mower hasn't been abused on rough ground. Was just wondering if anybody has an idea what this mower would be worth, thought maybe someone out there might work at a dealer or something that deals in used mowers. thanks for replys in advance all suggestions appreciated.

Coffee Shop / peerless
« on: August 23, 2012, 06:54:22 PM »
 I just came in from an adventure in which I found the ramains of an old mower. Not sure what it was/is but it has a peerless mod 702  with a 3330     7537 under this, is this a desireable transmission to build, didn't know if it would be the same inside as a 700 or if all 700 numbers are basically the same, this thing also has a 1" rear axle with a differential which I suppose I should put in the shed for some future use. Thanks in advance for any input you got on this transmission

 Hello I am new to mower racing however not new to racing, here in Kansas there is no mower races around that I'm aware of, however many of us have been kicking around the idea, We are all in favor of keeping this as a safe and inexpensive hobby and have been over both arma & uslmra rules and we feel that the IMOW class would be a good set of rules for us to build by, we have approached a local dirt track that is willing to let us exibition on there go kart track during intermission of their car races as long as they feel everything is safe and as stated before that is one of our main goals. We are all going to build together and make our mowers as even as possible even talked about throwing in a weight rule to give the big guys the same weight as the little guys in efforts to make more even competition. My first real question is transmission or transaxle, Ive read alot and it appears 700 series trans or 820 series transaxle but which way is prefered, thanks in advance for responses
