All the new 49 cid "vanguards" I have seen are still carburetors,  and they are using the aluminum intake ( my guess is there were sealing issues with the plastic ones ).

I'm thinking of running EC 8x8 with 15/6.5/8 turf masters, should give a firmer side wall? What you guys and gals think? Pro- cons? Thanks never ran the 8" rims before.
Owen, those tires on that size rim leave no sidewall...lol...been there done that. Its a real tight stretch, and most tire places will not want to do it....they need to use a bead blaster to get them to seat. There was no sidewall flex, but it leaves the lip of the rim vulnerable to getting torn up, as it turns into a plow blade when you get pressures to low, or into soft tracks in hard turns....and getting bashed by other mowers.

My suggestion, don't take them apart. Those intakes are very thin walled, and there is nothing to be gained by separating them. Use a port tool to take out the 2 flat spots in the carb mounting throat, then clean out the flashings on either side of it into each runner. Gasket match the port to head sides, and stay away trom the indentations for the mounting bolts....VERY thin in there!

Yes, vent the carb, otherwise you will have issue .

Ed, you are correct in regards to weight distribution in relation to the base of the engine,  but since it is on the chassis, it will change weight distribution on the chassis.

I have a set of good, used, ARC vanny long rods, would like to sell, or trade for a good, used set  of ARC vanny stock length rods. Asking $195.00 shipped in USA only.
12  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: Mounting engine backwards? on: June 12, 2015, 02:12:41 PM
Its for weight distribution,  and or, for hood/steering clearances.
13  Mower Building / Setup Help / Driveline / Re: clutch on: June 10, 2015, 05:33:03 PM
I don't c how to.much spring will cause it to slip... an yes they r all inline (within a 1/16 of in inch anyway)
??? You are complaining about the clutch pivot loosening,  or egging the hole....that has everything to do with spring tension. If the belt is slipping, AND you're clutch is still loosening,  then you have big problems.
14  Mower Building / Setup Help / Driveline / Re: clutch on: June 10, 2015, 12:02:36 PM
Maybe to much spring.
