Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Fuel Usage
« on: May 11, 2015, 08:27:22 PM »
hi guys, i have a 20hp vanguard twin built up somewhat and my question is last season with stock heads during a regular race i would use almost a whole tank of fuel, same motor this season runs strong but during off season i had my heads ported and polished larger stainless steel valves done by well known guy that knows what he's doing on these heads, but expecting to use more fuel i'm using alot less, any concern here?

Would there be any advantage to having a spacer between the intake to elbow and elbow to carb or better with just the one spacer
