IT'S NORMAL TO GET SOME AIR IN THE CRANKCASE.EVEN ON A REBUILD YOU WILL HAVE SOME LEAKAGE.

I understand completely about the variables.  You are just one of only a handful that I know of that will at least admit to shifting a 700 while in motion.   I am aware of the non-synchronized gears and the light duty shift forks but just one more tid-bit if you will.  How many races do you generally get out of the tranny/shift forks before you have to replace due to shifting?

IF YOU SHIFT ALL THE TIME WHILE RACING, 1-10 RACES MAYBE. ALL YEAR IF YOU USE THE CLUTCH AND ONLY SHIFT WHEN YOU NEED TO. MOST OF THE TIME I GET A WHOLE RACE SEASON OUT OF THE KEYS.

ONE SIDE NOTE: NEVER HAUL YOUR MACHINE IN GEAR. THIS WILL BREAK KEYS QUICK.

So do I understand you correctly that you shift while the mower is in motion?  I also am assuming that you are talking about a 700 tranny

YES ON THE 700. HE ONLY SHIFTS INTO RACE GEAR HALF WAY THROUGH THE PARADE LAP. ONCE HE'S IN RACE GEAR HE WONT SHIFT UNLESS HE HAS A 1/4-1/2 TRACK LEAD. UP SHIFTING TO A HIGHER GEAR WILL GIVE YOU MORE SPEED AND LESS ENGINE RPM'S. LESS RPM'S HELP SAVE THE ENGINE.

ALSO WHEN YOU DO SHIFT, REMEMBER TO USE YOUR CLUTCH. THAT WILL KEEP YOUR TRANS TOGETHER LONGER. SHIFTING ON THE FLY WILL TEAR ALOT OF PARTS UP.

SOME FRAMES THAT MEET THE 42"WHEEL BASE ARE JOHN DEERE (OLD 130-185'S) MOST MURRAYS WITH FRAME RAILS. CRAFTSMANS AND MANY OTHERS.

WHAT BRAND ARE THEY? WHERE CAN YOU BUY PARTS FOR THIS WHEN YOU NEED THEM?
11  Mower Building / Setup Help / Chassis / Re: wheelbase advantages on: January 13, 2015, 01:16:42 PM
Yeah thats why i wanted to check this out before choosing the donor mower to make sure i start with a mower in the right specs.
Also itll be an FXT mower so from what i know you have the choice to change the wheelbase as long as its minimum 42" long>> is this correct?

YOU CAN NOT CHANGE WHEEL BASE. STOCK MIN IS 42".

13  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: 28 ohv carb jet drilling on: January 06, 2015, 11:46:24 AM
Get a set of numbered drills, start small keep going bigger until power falls off , solder the holoe and redrill a sixe smaller.

GOTTA WATCH DOING THAT. THE JET HAS A SMALL O RING ON IT AND IF YOU HURT THAT, YOU CANT BUY IT FROM BRIGGS. GOTTA BUY A NEW JET.
