Anywhere from 12.5- 19.5 depends on the sticker most of the time,safe bet is around 16hp

How did you get 4000 on the governor? It is a wonder a rod has not come out already. As for the heads you will need better springs and retainers and if you put a higher lift cam in it you will need to take the valve seals off and shorten the valve guides

I removed the stock governor linkages and built one to take a throttle cable hooked onto the governor spring with more adjustment. I hadn't planned on a cam (yet lol). As for the valve springs, will the EC dual valve springs and retainers do the job? I'm guessing stronger pushrods have to be in the mix as well.

Not knowing the age and condition of your motor,i would put ARC rods in it as soon as possible.
the 49 rod is a much better rod and your motor might already have them from factory,but I have seen them fail at stock 3650 rpm,i just wouldn't risk it,unless it was a stock grass cutter..

The plan was to get the rods at the same time as the flywheel, however the flywheel was $630AU to my door so the rods have to wait until the piggy bank is a little fuller. I haven't had the engine apart properly yet other than to replace a leaky sump gasket. Engine is in overall good condition but I'll rebuild it once I get rods for it.

Thanks for your help so far, as I get more into it i'm sure i'll have more questions  :lol:
