Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: 44 Intek Twin
« Last post by HMCTAS on Yesterday at 11:54:49 PM »
I understand.I have a friend who raced with a club but he made his tractor go lots faster than the other guys in the club so they didn't want to race with him because he made them look slow so he left them and started his own club with other guys that wanted to go fast and that club is still running.

It's early days where we race so we have a race to see how everyone goes then we send the fast guys to the back of the field in a handicap style. This system has been working well so far. As we get more numbers up then we can start breaking it into classes.

A 38 cubic inch vanguard  would be my choice ,they rev high and make lots of power and have heads that can flow lots of air with not much porting

Check the CCs of the heads so you can figure out the compression ratio then you might take up to .100" .You might have to flycut the pistons for valve clearance and if you use a higher lift cam it will be closer <if you have race gas or alcohol you can run near 14 to 1 compression ratio  Intek heads don"t flow well it would be better if you ad a Vanguard 38 cubic inch with 23 HP heads probably good for about 75 hp at 11000 rpm

.100" is a fair wack at it. I don't think I'll be going that far :lol: To be honest, i just want something that I can run reliably with no governor. It'll be running on pump fuel for convenience.

Vanguards sound the goods but I'll work with what I've got. Even as it is now, there's a bunch of us that are sort of evenly paced, so If I can bump this engine up a little, that'll do me :D

The EC springs and retainers will work fine and you should do a performance valve job and maybe some porting while you are working on the heads also machine some off the surface of the heads to help the compression ratio

That was in the plan of attack Ron, just ordered some burrs for the die grinder last night :D How much would you take off the heads? I was going to face them off to make sure they were flat but that was about it.
