Briggs OHV & Vanguard / 30 ci Vanguard ( 16 HP )
« on: January 28, 2014, 11:42:20 AM »
 Hello guys . Sweden again....

 I put my new engine together with the parts from EC.
 ARC rods, EC Cam, ARC flywheel.
 I shaved the pistons as in the recomendation.
 The engine is running great with a lot of power .
 But when I spoke to a friend of mine whos working with racing bikes, he told me that probably I will destroy my pistons very quickly
 because its to thin at the top of the piston.
 He said the top piston ring will not stay in place for to long, though it's only approximately 2.5mm left and that is not enough to keep the top ring in place .

 Does anywone use the long rods for this engine and did the same thing ?

 Did you have any problems with your engines ?

 Please let me know, I don't want to destroy my brand new engine, with all this nice parts in it.
 I hope you understand my description . If you take a look at the attached picture, the part is marked with red, that's the part I am worried about. That part is only 0.079"
 Isn't that to thin ?
