I've done this on several v-twin racing engines with great success. It just takes some patience to get the jetting correct. And I have a new style two barrel carb that actually has a built in accelerator pump  Cool
3  For Sale / Mower Engines & Parts / New Blueprinted Tillotson HR181 racing carbs on: November 21, 2014, 09:21:37 AM
I have a new matched set of blueprinted Tillotson HR181 racing carbs setup for gas. I've been holding on to these rare jewels for a while, but I don't don't have any use for them at this time. I did the machine work and blending/polishing, and the inside of the carbs were setup by the one of the best Tillotson guys out there, Jon Brogden (formerly of EC). They have high flow fuel caps, thinned throttle shafts, filter cups blended into the body and mirror polished, all new internal parts including diaphragms, high flow needle/seats etc.. Drill pattern, pop off pressure, fulcrum arm, and mixture needles are setup for race gas. These carbs are very nice, and are ready to bolt on your racing engine.

This pair would be perfect for an FXT/ Super mod Twin, or individually as carbs on a FXS or Super Mod Single engine. I'll sell the pair for $475 shipped. Or I will sell them individually for $250 each shipped. Pics available to serious buyers.

These will also be listed on eBay next week, so get them for the Kart guys have a chance to. They won't last long

No need for converting, they have been making a 420cc vertical shaft clone engine for a while now. It is a mower engine, so it will be legal about anywhere. Check out the link below

Make sure the coils are installed the correct way. The old style single wire kohler coils do not have the same orientation on both sides. On one side the kill wire goes down towards the cylinder, and on the other it faces outward.

And yes it is possible to have a collapsed or broken oil ring(s) and the compression rings be fine. Or you could also have a partially blown head gasket between the lifter valley and cylinder causing the oil problem.

Does the engine have the old style single wire solid state coils, or the multi-wire coils with the smart spark ignition module?
7  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: What oil on: October 29, 2014, 09:50:24 AM
Brad Penn Grade 1 racing oil in 10w-30 is what i use.  You may not have a failure using other oils, but a high performance motor oil like Brad Penn has anti wear additives and high Zinc (ZDDP) levels and will give added protection to all moving parts, especially the camshaft. I've seen less than .001" wear on the cam lobes after two seasons of racing turning 9,000 rpm+ and high spring pressure levels.  If you can afford a $3000-$5000 racing engine, you should be able to afford a good racing oil.
8  General / Coffee Shop / Re: Cooper head gaskets on: October 28, 2014, 07:58:40 AM
Copper is one of the few metals that anneals differently. I still just let my gaskets heat/cool naturally in the engine and re-torque the heads in cycles.

Here is a link to the info George quoted,

One carb sold, one left!
10  General / Coffee Shop / Re: Cooper head gaskets on: October 24, 2014, 10:50:39 AM
Owen, check with the place you buy your gaskets from. Some copper heads gaskets are already annealed when you buy them, and some companies don't recommend annealing their gaskets due to the engines repeated heating and cooling over time. Just make sure do as Travis mentioned and re-torque the heads after heat cycles during the breaking period.  If you have o-ringed heads or block and true surfaces (near perfect), it's not required to use any form of sealer.

Nice. I haven't seen any of those parts on his website. Zach makes great parts too. Can't go wrong with engine parts from him or MWSC.
