(On this topic)Will 104 octane gas at the pump allow engines to run cooler? Some of  The (76) gas stations in the USA sell that at the pump but it still has ethenaol in it. I've ran 89-94 and didn't notice any difference. It's getting hot out and trying to keep engine temps down . It's seems to help letting the engine run a couple minutes after race in between races. Any bit would help.

Yes only EC outer springs with about .040-.060 shim.  Valves don't float and I've hit 6500rpm a few times . Try to keep it under 6000.

Yes the EC one,s do. I bought longer bolts , then I made a plate with threads to sandwich them together.( inside to outside) Never pull the bolts out.Not the best rockers but I could afford them.

Like the one EC sells with there rockers for singles? Or for stock rockers.

Is there bearings or a bushing in spindle barrel? I would add a sleeve over spindle bolt , 5/8 th inside and about 1-1.5 inches long. Weld it only on the barrel side, it will give it better strength. Other wise than that it looks great. It's better to over kill than under kill it.

The future of mower racing will ride on getting families and kids back into racing, and running the tracks and events with no politics. This means enforcing the same rules and regulations on everyone regardless of who you are, track official or president or whatever.
If the rule book says stock appearance exept air filter and exhast,that it!

This is what real Lawnmower racing is about and agree 100% with Tyler.

Pretty sure they still sell it. You can make your own with the adjustable needle out of an older one piece carb from a 8-10 hp briggs motor. You have to drill/tap the treads bigger and drill the bowl hole a little bigger and Drill the main jet (about) .080 bigger. It's a lot eazyier to just buy the one of EC.

Ok, thanks George. Wasn't totally for sure because I've seen a few mowers with one on the front left.

Had a blast racing with everyone there. Everyone was so nice on and off the track. The Track and crowd was awesome. Was well worth the 9hr drive down and 8.5 hr drive back. The racing setup was very organized. Flaggers,pit boss and score keepers did a perfect job. Looking forward to July 4-5 th . If you live near Oregon it's well worth the trip, lots of racers in multiple classes:)
