Agree with Ed. The pro Armor was by far my favorite

If the engine builder clearanced everything for a 50 weight oil, then that's the route to run. Lesser weight oil can hurt bearings. Or being clearanced for thinner oil and running a heavier oil is about a guaranteed  way to eat a bearing.

What did the guy you bought it from run?? Also what is the bearings clearanced for?? There's more to picking oil than colors and brand names. I've always ran Schaeffers oil, 10-30 for a while then my last motor was set up for 15-40

Buy a grade 8 bolt that is about 5 inches long, then make sure to set things up so the bearings ride on the shank of the bolt and not the threads.

Briggs makes potties too, don't forget! I have a Briggs indoor commode that is one fine flusher indeed!

Surprised it hadn't exploded yet to be honest   bigsmile

That same night he introduced me to Shiner Bock. I never do a dark beer...but he convinced me it was a good one. Sure enough, he wasn't lyin!!

I never lightened gears in one but never saw a need to. To lighten 30% is a lot. Which means big holes and I would be afraid that would make them weak if your trying to pound them with a good bit of horsepower.

Any Kohler pro I have saw was a command. Single or twin. There's should be a model number in the shroud just like normal. That'll tell ya, you just may have to do some parts looking to see what the part numbers come back to then compare to what goes in a command
9  Mower Building / Setup Help / Tires / Re: Harden tires without tire oven. on: July 15, 2014, 09:58:28 AM
Simple Green softens tires...It may be the wrong time of year as Al mentioned, but an old truck puller trick is to leave them mounted and set them on the shed roof in the fall. The sun and elements over the winter will harden them up for spring when pulling season starts. That's about the only way to do it without an oven that I know of personally.

Personally I would use 3/4 .058 wall moly, that's just me. And speedway motors sells some really nice u joints made by sweet racing that have needle bearings in them instead of a solid bushed type u joint. ALOT better in the end and they last a lot longer

Another thing to consider, what did you hone your cylinder walls to before putting the new rings in.

As long as the crank is in that center hole...leaves it up to you
13  General / Coffee Shop / Re: Fuel tanks on: May 15, 2014, 07:20:34 PM
I built all mine out of aluminum. With all the weld in bungs and fill cap from the chassis shop I had around $75 in parts. If ya can't TIG aluminum then you'll have to find someone to do that part too.
I usually made mine so they held a gallon. On a 30 lap race with some of the cautions that always seem to happen I would use up to 3 quarts.

I have no common sense either. That may be why Bert lets me drive his stuff.

Bro, you gotta "pin it to win it" and sometimes that takes a special breed of crazy!  You gotta be if your hangin with Bert!

Send him a Facebook message. He's always on there!
