Racing Mower Builds / john deere build
« on: January 08, 2018, 09:37:28 PM »
new to the forum but have looking around on here for awhile now so I thought why not join the crew. I'm also new to the mower building scene.
I am starting from what was a working john deere 108. so for the build consist of E.C. front axle kit and their aluminum belt clutch, 1 1/4 axle with racing go kart disc brake,
peerless 1:1 ragb, briggs 44, douglas aluminum wheels, rear tires are 16/7.5/8 and fronts are 13/5/6. this is something that I'm not actually going to race just building for fun.
but I need a little help/ guidance.

for the motor: its a briggs 44 .020 over
arc rods, arc flywheel, new heads with a little work, dual valve springs keepers and retainers with inner springs removed, precisions 3030 cam (I guess its like the little brother to the cheetah cam),
precisions vortex carburetor for a twin. E.C. aluminum carburetor filter adapter kit and filter.

one of the biggest things I need help with is gearing as I just don't really get it.
so it is going to be pulley on engine to pulley on ragb, sprocket out of ragb to rear sprocket. chain for the rear is #40 I have 44,46,48 tooth rear sprockets from E.C. already don't know if any of them will work.
