Both pulleys as well as the clutch itself.  Look at George's MTD build (early ones) and they will show placement of the guides.  Also look at EC's billet clutch assembly and it will show a guide pin on each of those pulleys too.

16 tooth on the drum will give a little more top end at the expense of torque out of the corner.

Romow, the "manufactured as such" refers to the steel frame as there is no comma after the word frame.  The frame has to be a lawn mower frame made for the use of cutting grass and was made widely available for the public to purchase.  The intent of that phrasing in the rules was so that people would not design and build their own frames as in the FX class (some).  Vari-drives are not being used much now, because they just didn't hold up.  It wasn't because they were/are not allowed by the rules

I am sure the weight would feel heavier off the top of your head than on the shipping scales roll

I use another black spacer between the carb and elbow like the one between the intake and elbow.
9  Mower Building / Setup Help / Chassis / Re: steering help PLEASE!!!! on: February 19, 2015, 10:52:21 PM

I have ran a set-up like that for 3-4 years.  Steering shaft sprocket 15 - pitman sprocket 30.   A 2:1 ratio in other words.  I have built a new FXT type chassis with 20T to 40T steering setup using 40 chain.  You are too close to a 1:1 ratio already.
10  Mower Building / Setup Help / Chassis / Re: 1 off Chassis building jig ideas??? on: January 28, 2015, 09:01:41 PM
The problem I see with your idea, is that here in the states, any thickness of plywood will have some crown or be warped as it is taken off the stack.   It is only flattened when nailed or screwed to a frame that is straight and strong enough to hold it.  Another issue would be from the heat transfer during welding which could ignite the plywood.  Do you have a concrete floor level enough to lay it on?  Maybe a thinner piece of sheet metal on the floor to tack the frame to?  This would be a lot of stooping and working from your knees, but less cost possibly.
11  Mower Building / Setup Help / Driveline / Re: questions on gear ratios on: January 19, 2015, 10:35:45 PM
The jack shaft turns the same rate on each end.  You have already figured that half of the ratio when you get the engine to jack shaft.  When you then multiply by the secondary ratio, you get the final drive.  You can always check you figures by engaging the clutch and turn the flywheel, counting the revolutions, until the rear tire has completed one exact revolution.

Just because the jack shaft has two different sized sprockets or pulleys, doesn't mean they turn different speeds.  The ratio is calculated based on the change in revolutions between the shafts.  i.e crank to jackshaft = ratio #1.   jackshaft to rear axle = ratio #2.   #1 x #2 = final drive.

Any clearer?

15  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: 2 barrel carb inlet tube question on: January 05, 2015, 10:56:38 PM
Do you have the black spacer installed that goes between the elbow and the carb?  All of the inlet tubes I have seen are on a 45 degree angle with the throat of the carb.  With the spacer installed, you will have room to connect your fuel line.
