Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: Big Bore 49 Intek V-Twin??
« Last post by rotten ron on Yesterday at 11:54:54 PM »
Inteck heads flow so poorly making the engine bigger will just make the problem worse  A small Vanguard with some ported 23 HP heads will have more power than any Inteck  14 to 1 compression is good but we used 14.5  you will need to "O" ring the heads and use copper gaskets

Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: Briggs 17HP 31 OHV Single Upgrade Path?
« Last post by shiftyguy on June 16, 2018, 09:20:06 AM »
Thanks for all the updr information.   
Just one question though.    I followed your instructions to a tee, however in step 2 you state some have the coil off to the side, anyou say to use the timing wheel,. We've done exactly that , but the hub in the center the bolt holes don't line up anymore, is there a different hub for the offset? Or am I to drill and tap the flywheel?   I'm stumped and it's Saturday.

Driveline / trans axle questions
« Last post by Dirty Deeds on June 14, 2018, 07:47:22 AM »
Hey guys IM wanting to build a drift mower, not go race but just to have fun with and take to shows. I see alot of builds use just a single speed gear box with reverse, is the 4-6 speed trans axles from mowers not strong enough to handle 20-40hp or do most mower racing rules ban them?

Hello all, I have a racing mower with a 18HP vangaurd (stock), its got a 5 engine pulley 10 gear box, then a 16 tooth to 60. What do I have wrong here my rear ratio is 3.75-1. My mower has no go down the straight. Any help be great  :confused:

For one thing your final gear ratio is 7.50-1
If you are running governed 3650 rpm your doing about 23-24 mph with your setup ,that's why you have no straightaway speed

Did you check that you're getting full rpm out of your engine? Belt clutch or centrifugal clutch? What size rear tires?
