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?!?!

Yes it will work well.
"410 lift" means that it lifts the valve .410 inches off of the seat......kinda, lol.

Does that mean gap them as normal? Will it make a difference or no?
gap as normal yes

Ok I bought the springs, keepers and retainers from EC. Now I have a really stupid question. Do I set the valvle lash as I normally would or are the clearances different considering both springs are now the same??  confused2 confused

Your cam maker should tell you what to set the lash at.

Running rich means too much fuel or too little air..
Are you running an air filter? Is it dirty?
Are you sure the carb is clean, those carbs like hiding stuff...especially if its been sitting around drying out for a few years!

I'll have to agree and disagree with Tommy on this...

First, I'll agree...I would but nervous putting my best built Opposed in a C/P against his 8hp mini's!!
With a built single, any single, you will kill stock Opposed twins!!

But I think if Tommy built the 28cube singles the way he builds the lil buggers.....more engine is always more engine!

I guess what Deere calls a "rack" is what the rest of the world calls a "steering Sector" or "Sector gear"?
And you are correct, that is not what the USLMRA rules refers to as rack and pinion.

Doesn't that make changing a belt a real pain?

Flipper you sure your not talking about a pinion & sector?
I don't remember  true rack & pinion, but you know Deeres WAY better than I do!

Should be NO front suspension at all.
We used a L100 push pull rack n Pinion steering system on our older STX-38's.......that was MAJOR fabrication, and took quite some time to make.

Look at Richard Miller's # 811 in Mod XR class, he has one of my old mowers. I believe he said he may be down there at Dublin.
Burgundy STX38 with hood scoop. Took Rick a little while to get the feel of it, he does very well now. The STX Chassis great for slower speed classes. The Drawback is a stamped one piece frame....if something goes wrong, the entire chassis has to be replaced, this is why we got away from making racers from this series and moved to the L100 series, or the older 160-180
series that were bulletproof.
Rack & Pinion wil not be legal in USLMRA Wink

It can get frustrating driving to races. We traveled a minimum of 8 hrs to get good racing for years. Get a buddy or two involved. Splitting the driving and costs helps a lot!! In the end it is worth every dime spent and every hour on the road!!
