1  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: Please help me with finding out the model / HP of my engine on: May 13, 2015, 08:13:44 AM
If the dipstick tube goes into the pan, and not the side of the block, it is good to build, and is either a 28 or 31 cid. The only way to tell the difference between them without any id tag, is to pull the head and measure the bore. If the dipstick tube goes into the side of the block,  it is an AVS series engine, which will take more money, and work, to make live.

1: yes bigger valve, no on compression loss....thd 38 heads have a smaller chamber cc than the 35 heads.
2: no need of worrying about low compression ratio with this combo...answer 1 tells why.
3: no....your correct, you will have 38 cid engine... but will have more control over the piston to cylinder clearance when boring the 35 block to accept the intek piston, which is also a flat top piston, giving you a much better compresion ratio vs the stock 38 pistons being cut down...which still leaves a slight dish in it after machining.

Owen, just bring magnetic numbers, or tape, to change your mower number if someone else uses that number here. We have had to do this before....no big deal.

9  Engine Help / Briggs Flathead / Re: oppy porting and can? on: April 27, 2015, 09:36:36 PM
Ok I sent one other question with the porting is that is the stock carb good to run with the mods?
not Tommy, but I have built a "few" oppy's, and all of them run 6500 and up rpm....still making power with stock re-worked carbs.

   A great story, but...

   Unfortunately, Larry Webster, the story's author, has a major inaccuracy in the geographics of this story.  He says, "Two of America's greatest racing enterprises have major ties to Pennsylvania." 

   Actually, it's three.

   Just south of Pittsburgh, off I-79, is the town of Canonsburg, PA, where Don Yenko did his magic with Corvair Corsas and Chevy Camaros in the late-'60s.  His Yenko Chevrolet dealership worked closely with Chevrolet to make these performers available to the motoring-enthusiast public, especially the racers.  And they're still holding their own on the Vintage Racing circuits...
