1  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Vanguard Crankshaft Question on: May 16, 2014, 09:27:00 PM
On the 30, 35, and 38 ci vannies, the PTO end of the crank, are all of them the same length or are there several lengths? What is the length of the PTO end? I'm using a mockup engine but the crank is tapered on PTO end. Thanks

I'm looking for a good stock bore 44ci intek block. A bare block will be fine and I'm looking for one with the 1/2" cam journal. Send me a message if you have one. Thanks.
3  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Vanguard Pushrod Length on: April 01, 2014, 11:00:55 AM
Can someone give me an approximate length on the stock pushrods of a 35 ci vanny vtwin? I can't seem to find the length and I don't have one to measure. It would be much appreciated. Thanks.
4  For Sale / Want To Buy / Who Has It? / WTB Horizontal Vanguard on: March 27, 2014, 08:02:20 PM
As the title says, I'm looking for a complete horizontal vanguard engine. I'm not looking for a built or race ready engine. Simply a stock engine. Preferably one that needs building. Have a project coming up and I'll be needing one. It can be a 30ci or a 35 ci engine.
5  General / Coffee Shop / Fuel Pump Use (not for its intended use) on: March 19, 2014, 11:03:53 AM
I'm not speaking of any engine in particular here so I thought I'd post this in the coffee shop. Has anyone ever tried using a Mikuni vacuum operated fuel pump as oil pump? I've seen instances where the fuel pump would pump engine oil due to other engine problems and of coarse it was only a short period. My question would be the longetivity of the pump due to oil temps? If you have tried it, what were your results? Looking for any info on this. Thanks!

7  Mower Building / Setup Help / Driveline / 420 Chain on: December 02, 2013, 10:09:15 AM
Is anyone out there running the 420 chain? How do you like it and where do you buy it in bulk. I'm lookin to change over and get away from the 40 chain. The 40 chain starts kinking after use and the chain wants to start jumping. I have found the 420 chain in bulk but not sure if I will be better off quality wise. I can get quality 40 chain but pay dearly for it. I do realize I will have to change sprockets unless I go with the 420H chain.
8  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Mikuni Carb Questions on: November 19, 2013, 09:35:53 PM
For those that may be a little more familiar with the Mikuni carbs, is there an advantage to a spigot mount versus a rigid mounting carb. I realize the spigot is probably a little easier to work with but is there a downfall to it? Also flat slide versus round slide, advantages and disadvantages?

11  Engine Help / Tecumseh Engines / Repair Manual on: October 20, 2013, 09:41:16 PM
I've got a friend with a tecumseh engine on a Shriners parade car. Someone took some parts off of it for the governor. He said he wasn't sure how the linkages reattach and I have no clue. Is there anyone familiar with this engine or does anyone have an engine with the governor still attached that would be willing to take a few pics? Here are the numbers off of the engine.

12  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Intek Coil on: September 06, 2013, 07:55:12 PM
Got a brand new 49 cube intek in my shop. Brand new engine that I disassembled and built. The last thing was to install the coils. Well turns out the couls are different. The plastic part of coil is wider and does not clear the relocation bracket. Hate to call the guy and tell him he has to buy two new coils for a 40 or 44 engine when he has a brand new engine with new coils. Does anyone know if ARC makes different brackets for the 49 coils?
13  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / valve cover spacers on: September 02, 2013, 12:06:26 AM
Does anyone sell valve cover spacers for the inteks? I thought I seen them somewhere but haven't been able to find them again. I know I can make some just trying to save the headache.

15  General / Coffee Shop / Mudplugs for 8 inch wheels on: June 30, 2013, 12:20:55 AM
Does anyone know of a place that may sell mudplugs for 8 inch diameter wheels? This would be for a non beadlock wheel. I know you can get covers for some of the beadlock wheels but I'm searching for the foam plugs to put inside of my wheels.
