I'm sure I have some 36 spline shafts

You need some space ,at least an inch between spindle barrel and heim joints for adjustments,you will use washers or small spacers to take up the space so you can move spindle up and down to get proper weights

I haven't been on their(EC) site lately,but they used to have some 9 spline stuff.
I guess you could always change the shaft to 36 spline worst case

Kohler Engines / Re: Kohler CV14S Walbro LMK carburetor issues.

Hey, so I have a Walbro LMK carburetor on my Kohler Command CV14S with the letters and number K and 3 and 61602 on it. Now Im having some issues with it. It will idle fine and run good while on the gas for maybe a lap and a half and then it will start spitting and sputtering and if you give it any gas it will die but it stays idleing. Any information or ideas as to why its doing this would be helpful. Thanks

I'd say lack of fuel for sure,since it runs good for about a lap and a half,i would start with making sure fuel tank is vented and fuel filter is not plugged,then move forward from there,it sounds like your issue is somewhere between tank and carb.

When Ryan Kerr raced with the Kohler he used no flywheel at all ,The only thing he had was a piece of quarter inch aluminum with magnets to trigger the ignition .When he raced in Delaware Ohio  2008 and won the finals I was talking to Bobby Clevland and he wanted me to show him Ryan's mower .When I told him about the no flywheel he wanted to see what it was about,I don't think he believed me.

Isn't this a little off topic :twocents:

Well ordered the 15 tooth denso off ebay and got it installed and the gears line up fine but it doesn't have the power to turn it over.

Got to looking at it and its a denso knockoff not the real thing. Where are you guys buying true denso brand starters?

I use the aftermarket starters all the time and have sold at least 30 of them in the last couple years with no issues.
Keep in mind this is a much larger starter and needs more amperage to work properly and battery must be keep fully charged or you will ruin the solenoid real quick.You may have just gotten a dud

To answer your Question the briggs denso starters can be gotten new from any briggs dealer,Precision cams could get you one and im sure EC can as well,but their pricey new $250-280..Good Luck

The walbro lmt 56 is the carb of choice for modified 12hp flatty,dont waste your money on bigger valves for what your doing and I have plenty of nice used cams that would work well for you ,I also have the arc rod and flywheel you will need and the 28avs piston as to go with the rod as well,you will also need the arc brass weights for crankshaft,you will also have to upgrade valve springs and retainers.

well I was looking at buying a denso starter for my 23hp vanguard so it will turn over without help and I see that the briggs 808498 has 15 teeth not 16 like my stock starter so I assume it will not fit. The starter and flywheel are off of a 16hp vanguard that I used for parts. I guess I thought most of the parts between these motors were interchangeable.

I think you'll find the 808498 15 tooth starter will work just fine ,you may have to shim it but should work fine

Again, thanks for the valuable advice; I figured some of the engine internals would need to be upgraded.  What I didn't think about is that I could spend a fair amount of money on machining and larger valves, only to end up with less hp because of reduced compression.  Because of my ignorance about B & S engines, what I really need is a how-to-hot-rod-Briggs-&-Stratton-engines book.  I've searched on amazon and google; there are several youtube videos, some wiki how-to sites and lots of already build race engines but I haven't been able to find "the book".  If anyone knows of a book that I can buy, that would be greatly appreciated; something that tells me specifically what I need to do to reach my goal of a 30 - 40% increase in hp and torque.

Sorry,but no such book exists...
If you put a little effort into it you can find most anything you need to know on this site..
