Fuel is naturally pulled to the bottom cylinder by gravity so it will run richer than the top. So they use a smaller jet to the bottom cylinder. At higher rpm it is less prevalent so equal jetting works as well. There are other things that can be done to take advantage of this extra fuel....

I also have a bent Geinger I'd let go of CHEAP!!! lol

Best thing to do is to copy the pressure lube block. I had a block that was fully ported and clearanced for the 46 crank and I used a 40 base for my pressure lube sump. I just looked at where the oil passage was and tried my best to copy it.

Or center drill your splash lube cam and machine the pump drive.

It can be done. But if you want serious power out of an opposed the real ticket is to purchase a new block from Briggs. You can still get a special 46 cube block that was built with 31 cube pistons and a 42 cube crank. It never came as a pressure lube so the oil passages must be drilled. Then add a pressure lube 46 cube long stroke crank. Now you have some serious cubic inches to play with. I personally never built this engine but did assist a fellow racer in doing one. I also showed him how to drill the oil passages. It is actually only one long passage that hits the top of the cam and exits into the top journal Iit will exit above the journal and just under the top seal). Then a short one to connect to the top journal. This oil passage feeds the top rod and top crank journal.

we run a bit higher (numerically lower) ratio on our Mod-XR. We are in the 4.50 range and at our last race was at 4.22. We do however run a Kawasaki 540 and keep it governed at closer to 3560. It makes more power there than if we push it up to 3650. Plus we never need to worry about failing post race tach check.

I have an Intek that we have lost the original coil kill wire for. I'm going to run down to Radio Shack and grab some but I don't know exactly what I'm looking for. Some one know what I need?

Bigger front sprocket or smaller rear. It's about gear ratio. Understanding them is going to be your best friend.

Turn the carb around with the pump facing the shroud.
