Welcome to the site!  There's a wealth of knowledge on the site and plenty of members waiting to answer any questions.  Where are you located in NE Arknasas?  I'm from NE Arkansas.

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

I wish it was!  That hospital bed was super fancy. I could control the TV with it & it came with a help button!

I use an old hospital bed.  Works awesome.  Plug it in and adjust height by pushing a button.

This engine was freshened up over the winter with new rings and bearings.  It has about 5 local races on it from this season.

Briggs model 19 IC block
Briggs balanced crank

I'm sure I'm forgetting something.  This is a very strong engine.   I've raced it at many national races and was very competitive.

Timing is the major key to keeping the crank in one piece.  Like Paul said, use a degree wheel.  Never exceed 30 degrees. 
8  General / Coffee Shop / Re: 110 Octane racing fuel on: September 29, 2014, 08:15:11 PM
That's the correct hub.
9  General / Coffee Shop / Re: 110 Octane racing fuel on: September 29, 2014, 08:06:55 PM
From experience, never trust the timing marks.  I've had  B&S cranks be off on timing.  Always put a light on it.  Also, what flywheel hub are you using?  AVS or Non-AVS?  Definite difference in timing.

I agree with what Paul is saying.  Just trying to explain what's going on inside of the engine.  I run a very well built 31 OHV and all I run is regular 89 octane pump fuel.  All I have ever ran is a B&S nut style crank.  I agree that timing is the most important thing to look at.

The higher the compression, the more of a risk of pre-detonation running lower octane.  This is what causes broken cranks.  Premature detonation.  There are no benefits to running high octane in lower compression engines.  The higher octane fuels are designed to keep spontaneous combustion from occurring.

Sorry, deleted that photo accidentally from my photobucket.

I have a USLMRA built AP for sale.   It is turn key, ready to race.  I competed on it last season nationally and finished the season ranked 5th.   The engine has one season on it.  The chassis was also freshened up last year.  Just looking to down size a little.

JE Piston
ARC Rod
Precision Cam
Dual Valve Springs wt Billet Retainers

I don't have to sell it so please serious inquiries only.  I plan on racing in Carlisle in June, so it can be delivered there.  Price: $1,750

Thanks for the quick reply George.   For an FXS, would you recommend using gear oil or something lighter?
15  Mower Building / Setup Help / Driveline / RAGB Lubricant Level on: March 20, 2014, 09:36:46 PM
Looking for some RAGB info.  I've searched and found the types of lubricants that racers are using in their RAGB but haven't found the amount to put in the RAGB.  What's the rule-of-thumb on these?  Cover the bottom pinion gear or fill up to the bottom of the output shaft?  Any info would be greatly appreciated.
