I build racing carbs but I don't mess with the opposed engines. Call E.C. or message George Herrin. I believe they did one for Rooster that turned out well.
3  For Sale / Mower Engines & Parts / OEM Briggs Denso High Torque Starter on: March 30, 2015, 04:54:16 PM
I have a good used Briggs Denso high torque starter. This is the OEM Denso, not an aftermarket. Fits the Briggs Intek and Vanguard v-twins, as well as the 10hp and up flathead and OHV singles. New price is $250. I'll take $120 plus shipping.

Call or send Hitch a message. He had several Craftsman hoods in various models.

I know Tyler sell them i have talked with him a few month ago about it. i wont ask where he gets them to go buy from under him after ... the thing is shipping gets expensive since i'm in Canada and some ebay store have very good price with prepaid duty...

Give the high torque starter from EMS a try. I have used them before with no ring issues. Just double check the spacing on each engine. The aluminum ring gear will hold up fine if the starter is meshing properly and weighs considerably less than a steel gear.

Al Hodge at Performance V-twins is the only other person I know of who sells drop in aftermarket pistons for the 4.262" long rods. He has some Wiseco and Arias pistons, but they aren't cheap. Call him at 704-291-7825 and tell him what block you are using (bore size) and your rod length.

Owen, in performance engines we normally run .0008" - .0012" clearance on the wrist pin but i have heard of some people using .002" .003" for more oil retention in certain applications depending on the type of oiling system used. I would say no less than .0008" and no more than .0015"
11  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: is this set up wrong?? on: February 20, 2015, 10:20:21 AM
So can i just take the spacer off the intake and put it between the carb? In other words,run NO spacer between intake and elbow,just a spacer between carb and elbow? And why do u space the carb out there instead of on the intake?is the air filter elbow and all that look right?? A pic would be very helpful

You have the spacer installed in the correct location now. The horizontal engines come from the factory with the spacer between the intake and the elbow, and no spacer between the elbow and carb because the idle adjuster screw is built into the elbow. Since you aren't running a stock vanguard horizontal carb, you can also put a spacer between the elbow and carb to space it away from the flywheel for more room to reach your adjuster.

George, this email was sent to me from Zach Kerber Machine,

"Zach is in the shop working and is not talking on the phone. Please order what you need on the website and in the payment option you can click on phone order and I will email you a ticket you can then pay with your pay pal account. Or just email what you need and I can make you a ticket.

Thank you

Office manager"

Let me clarify, when i said don't bother calling Zach, it meant he is busy and is not talking on the phone. It is best to reach him by email. Nothing negative was expressed or implied by my post.

14  Mower Building / Setup Help / Chassis / Re: F/Xt chassis offset, Why is? on: February 16, 2015, 10:46:50 PM
The first super mod machine i built back in 2008/2009 was built with the 4" offset. Problem was as Mike stated above. With a solid axle and no suspension you have to unload the left rear tire so it will turn. Adding that weight to the left side was great for keeping it from turning over, but it can cause the machine to push through the corner. I ended up reducing the offset in the front and rear after a few races. All of the super mod chassis i have built since were built with no offset in the chassis itself, and what offset we did use was done by moving the tires.
