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
JE Piston
ARC flywheel
Dual springs wt billet retainers
Precision Camshaft
Extra Briggs IC block

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.

That's the correct hub.

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.

B&S Model 19 IC
JE Piston
Precision Cam
Dual Valve Springs wt Billet Retainers
ARC Flywheel

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?
12  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. 
13  General / Coffee Shop / Re: Ap vs sp on: March 07, 2014, 10:22:51 PM
The FXS & FXT are what the scales are for.  No minimum weight for prepared classes in the USLMRA.  Just have to be built by the build requirements.

That's awesome!  Another national race in the south.  I'm sure we'll have a group from the ARLMRA attending.
15  General / Coffee Shop / Re: More mower racing on TV!!! on: January 14, 2014, 09:26:04 PM
That's not the episode that has mower racing.  The show made multiple stops in Arkansas.  The episode that has mower racing also covered the Arkansas Delta region.  I emailed the host but haven't heard back from him.  I'll give him a call tomorrow to see if they will re-air the show.
