1  General / Coffee Shop / Tillotson HR Questions on: July 29, 2014, 08:15:02 AM
Well I remember from my youth having snowmobiles with these carbs on them. Not the best carb but easy to tune and repair. I'm running one now on my OHV single and I have a few questions. 1. Why are all the carbs I see used on mowers mounted upside down compared to snowmobiles? 2. The carb I have has an external pulse (3 plate). I've been told to lose the pump and feed it with an external pulse pump. any truth? (using intake pulse - know how to do that correctly) 3. I have rebuilt the carb and it seems to work ok usually. It doesn't tune like it did when we would tune 2 strokes with them. I guess I need a lesson on tuning these things. I'll take all the help I can get.

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?

Can someone give me a known model number of a Kool Bore Briggs 28 cube? I want it to look up certain part numbers. I have a couple blocks here but they were stripped when I got them. Thanks.

7  Race and Event Announcements / ARMA Races / 2014 Rules? on: December 31, 2013, 09:10:15 AM
Any idea of when the 2014 rules will be finalized? Also what the insurance rate will be for the 2014 season? I'm in the process of setting up our 2014 race schedule and need to inform (and collect) the insurance fees.

A friend of mine just came back from the ARMA Nationals and was trying to describe to me this push pull steering some were using. Anyone have any info or pictures of this? What is ARMA and USLMRA opinion of this?

10  General / Coffee Shop / Looking for a race in the New England/New York area Sept. 14/15 and/or 21/22 on: August 27, 2013, 11:32:21 AM
Long subject title but pretty much says it all, I'm looking for a race in the New England/New York area Sept. 14/15 and/or 21/22. ARMA or outlaw doesn't matter just would like to get away and race where I'm not involved with race in any official capacity. likely will be bringing 6 mowers.

11  General / Coffee Shop / Sputtering Carb on: August 05, 2013, 10:38:14 AM
Ok I'm at whits end here. I have a walbro 56 that is minimally opened. I have fought a bad bad stumble off the corners all season. This weekend we went to a cart track and the thing never missed a beat. Perfect all night. We don't race on smooth tracks. the next day at our race it was terrible again off the corner. I have done all the mods. it is externally vented. I even did a sorta dangerous drill (chance of ruining the carb). I drilled a new vent hole in the bottom of the carb body really close to the bowl in order to get the overflow below the throat of the carb (drilled at a slight angle to drill into the overflow groove at the mounting flange at its lowest point hoping to keep the fuel level below the throat when bouncing). Still same trouble. This carb when on perfect flat surface works great. And yes the original hole for the overflow is plugged. It is the what I was told the better 56 with the removable plug to get to the low, low speed jet and installed adjustable high speed jet along with the proper seat and needle for a fuel pump.

Lester

PS this is the only 56 out there on our circuit that DOESN'T stumble on parade laps and will idle all day (although a bit rich).
12  Race and Event Announcements / ARMA Races / ARMA Junior class Question on: July 31, 2013, 10:11:08 PM
I've read the rulebook several times and it contradicts itself over what's allowed for engine modifications. Under GOVERNED CLASSES (SUPER STOCK, JUNIOR PREPARED, MOD-X-R): the second rule: The engine must be as delivered from the factory, internally and externally, with only the following exceptions; air cleaner, air filter or velocity stack, open exhaust, adjustable high speed jet in carburetor and the removal of the debris screen covering the flywheel to allow quick and easy access to the flywheel nut while checking the 8 to 1 gear ratio (ratio check for Super Stock and J/P only).
 Under the heading SUPER STOCK & JUNIOR PREPARED: it states this: The engine must be as delivered from the factory, internally and externally, with only the following exceptions; air cleaner, air filter or velocity stack, open exhaust and the removal of the debris screen
covering the flywheel to allow quick and easy access to the flywheel nut while checking the 8 to 1 gear ratio.

My question is: can you have an adjustable high jet needle if not originally equipped in the Junior class?

13  Mower Building / Setup Help / Driveline / New 700-039 on: July 11, 2013, 04:35:31 PM
We have had a rash of input bearing failures as of recent. they seem to be burnt bad, almost like lack of lubrication. What I just started doing is to cut a groove (3 actually) in the case under the thrust washer to allow oil to get to the bearings. On that note I just opened up a newly delivered 039 and when i went to put the grooves in I saw something very disturbing....there was an o-ring under the thrust washer keeping lube from getting to the bearings. I've never seen this before. Has anyone else?

Here is a photo of the oil grooves:

14  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Intek Twin oil seal on: June 25, 2013, 01:52:31 PM
We are having a terrible time getting the bottom seal of our Intek twin to seal. I've replaced it countless times and it won't seal. the pulley is at the bottom of the engine. The sump base bushing is tight. Just tired of it. Is there a better seal than the Briggs OEM one?
