1  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: 30 cube vanny 2 barrel elbow question on: December 06, 2014, 11:10:46 PM
I actually turned my elbow around as Tyler said, and used a short filter to clear the side of the hood.  I did not hone the elbow or the intake to match, just drilled and tapped the middle bolt and went with it.  I think the engine runs just fine.

Yes EC sells a KN style filter to match their filter adapter, I believe it is 2" filter height, same oval diameters, call the sales desk and tell 'em ya want the short one.  Same price as the taller one if I remember right.

Grubdiggers response is true for ARMA.  Unless the rules for USLMRA change for 2015, the only mod allowed for G/P is aftermarket exhaust.  Carb and air filter are supposed to be as delivered from the factory, according to my conversations with Kerry Evans.

You might also look at the "timing marks" on the flywheel again,  I had one to spin because I didn't torque the bolts well enough.  It will act just like a sheared flywheel key.

It could still have the weights.  I had the eccentrics milled off of that style of crank in a 28 series, used the brass weights, and it is still running after 4 years.

So the answer would be to run a 6 or 7 on the engine with a 4 or 5 on the tranny.

Drop your axle sprocket to 44 and you will have a gear ratio of 4.85   Your ratio as it sits is 5.02:1 which might be a little steep.  Race in 5th gear, your 25/25 gear set, top speed about 35 MPH depending on tire size (16") and RPM of engine (3650)

Mine has a 5/8" shaft, over the engine, with 2 universals butted together - no problems

I am running two of these engines, one in FX and the other in FXS, they mesh fine with the ring gear.  The weak point is the solenoid on the starter itself.
15  Engine Help / Honda and Clone Engines / Re: gx390 on: May 27, 2014, 12:11:01 AM
I never had to change the stasrter gear, just used what came on the starter.   They WILL smoke the solenoid with a higher copression engine.  Most of the time, I try to turn it by hand past the compression stroke.
