With those, no weldment is needed, just like Ed said, just bolt on square and go.     omg I think I just agreed with Ed!!!!

Are you using flanges or cassettes with your bearings?  with flanges, I would use 1/4" for the weldment.  With cassettes, the .080 will do.

I think 32.48 MPH is kinda fast for a 10:1 ratio as in the example.  Check your numbers again on the tranny to axle ratio, should be around 1.7

Birdman,  the middle picture is actually an oar, not a paddle
8  Engine Help / Honda and Clone Engines / Timing gear on clone crank on: April 28, 2015, 12:16:58 PM
Can anyone tell me how the timing gear is attached to the crank on a clone?  Is it pressed on? held by a key? any way for it to move?  I have three different clone cranks with the timing marks in three different positions in relation to the flywheel keyway of the crank.  Thanks.

Duh, I see the model number now, should be an opposed twin Briggs, may want to also check the governor springs on throttle rod, make sure it is attached.

Would help to know what engine you have, twin or single cylinder.  Mostly sounds like carb to me, possibly air leak at intake, or just dirty carb.

LIKE - so true George, Thank you!

A lot...even a louder "BOOM" when it blows!!!
13  Mower Building / Setup Help / Driveline / Re: Belt Guides, Both Pulleys? on: March 25, 2015, 08:56:16 PM
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
