You could try BMI.
Or build a set.

There is no better chassis to start with than a free one!!
Some of us build certain chassis for the wheelbase. Some build others because they are easy to build. Some build because not very many people race a certain chassis, and were tired of looking at MTDs, Murray's and Craftsman. Lol
Some people build what they have.

Your reasons for building are the best. I wouldn't be doing what I am now if my Dad hadn't stuck a wrench in my hand. And you'll never get back the time you don't spend with your kids. I spent most of my children's younger years just trying to keep a roof over them and food in them. Take it from someone who knows, you can replace the memories you don't have with your children, it's replaced with regret and sorrow that just like memories you carry with you for life!!

Just give him a centrifugal clutch. If anyone has a problem with that they are heartless and don't belong in mower racing.
Just my opinion Wink

Don't get discouraged, figure out the problem!!
Despite popular belief, racing is not a bolt together thing

Zach I've had the same luck this season. Running stock stuff even. Bad luck comes with racing and stuff does break.
However..... I don't believe in that much luck, bad or good!!

If your breaking every race something is wrong.
Are you keeping up on maintenance ?

If your breaking drive line parts, something isn't right done where? Something is twisted or twisting? Maybe a weld broke somewhere? Metal fatigues, maybe chassis is just worn out?

If your breaking tranny or engines, your working them too hard some where.

Bad deal. Those pulleys won't hold up to much.

Pointer #1: Read before you build!!
Pointer #2: Your close to the King of Mower racing - Super George Herrin!
Though were not sure if he's the "King" like Richard Petty, or Elvis??

With ratios that high (4.75 to 5.0), how do any of you have any pull off the corners especially being governed?

12  Engine Help / Briggs Flathead / Re: isky cam on: July 23, 2014, 11:15:28 AM
maybe a little more if you spin it fast enough
With the springs he put in it...you cant spin that oppy fast enough to get "bonus lift" , lol!!

But on the other hand, no biggie if ya do...just kinda self regulating?!?!
13  Engine Help / Kohler Engines / Re: kohler vs intek on: July 23, 2014, 11:12:43 AM
kohler, any where, any day, any reason....
14  Engine Help / Briggs Flathead / Re: isky cam on: July 22, 2014, 07:02:04 AM
Yes it will work well.
"410 lift" means that it lifts the valve .410 inches off of the seat......kinda, lol.
15  Engine Help / Briggs Flathead / Re: OPPY VALVE SPRINGS on: July 22, 2014, 06:57:54 AM
Does that mean gap them as normal? Will it make a difference or no?
