It will have more power at higher rpms but will not work as good at lower rpms. At least this is my experience, they do something similar on banderleros [sp].

I would bump the gear set up to start in what I would call second and add an overdrive to the mix just in case you were under geared to start with. No since turning too many rpm's when you could bump it up a gear and keep going, just make sure to keep it as close of a jump as possible.  I think a lot of people would run the 820 if they could get one that was already set up to run as a "flipped" unit.  I also think the big thing in the coming years will be the GP class. Enough speed to keep people happy and cheap enough to run.  This transaxle option would give people a simple, durable, dependable option over the 700.

Im just saying most people don't build full tilt race engines, also, you don't have to use the billet crank.

Sounds like you need a better battery and cables.

Hey Jason, did they let you keep that one from your hip surgery?

You can do anything to this motor that you can do to a v8. You have to decide how far you are willing to go, a fully built 31 can run you $1800 in parts alone.

What type of front brakes?

They are the base platform that many start with because of their availability. The USLMRA even has a super fast class called FX that this engine will fit in. It should be a model number starting with 28, you can use the model number to find out more about what you need to.

Also go check out Bowles Farm in MD. One of the best tracks in the country.

Stamped frames can be really strong. At least mine is.

If you run the 20hp as a stock engine performance will be better than the flatty, if you build the 20hp with all the things you mentioned performance will be much, much better.

Other engines, most came from snowmobiles.

If I had another 820 I would use it. Anyone wanna donate? As for the other questions, I was wanting to use a transaxle to get back to what we use to do around here locally. I figured if I can be fast with it I would have proven something.
13  Mower Building / Setup Help / Driveline / Transaxle questions on: September 28, 2014, 08:33:49 PM
I use to use an 820 obviously it was great, now I'm thinking of building another mower for GP and think I want to use another transaxle. This time I plan to flip it, instead of using a jackshaft. I have a few options in transaxles but really got to looking at a peerless 600. Can you flip a 600, and what is the best way to run a larger axle in it. I know others have ran 1 1/4" axles, I can also use pillow blocks or flange bearings for support. Pics or part numbers would be helpful.

Use the avs sump with an oil pump.

They plumb it in to the side of the crankcase and pull air out. This will pull almost as much vacuum as it will provide pressure.
