Discount on large orders.500 and up orders. 5-10% would make a difference. A arc rod and piston application cart for most common engines. Rod piston combo,s for drop in .

So should I open lows and highs a couple more sizes or just the high jets? Thanks for your help, it's appreciated.

That's a hard one. It's not bogging,more cuts in and out 1-3 times really fast then goes. If I start from a stand still and take it up to 7500 it doesn't do it. It's only hard off then hard back on throttle. What rpm does the low jets affect? Thanks for your help Nick

It's on my built 35 vanny. Not a big bore carb. When letting off throttle in corner and coming back on throttle it stumbles for a second , then pulls good the hole straight. It only happens if I let the rpm drop below 3500rpm. If I stay above that it doesn't stumble. With traffic it's hard to keep it above 3500rpm in the corner. Plugs are dark brown . Not soaked . Too rich or lean, low jet or main jet problem? Thanks for any info. I've opened lows and highs a couple sizes and didn't fix it.

(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.

11  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: OHV Single stud bridge on: June 14, 2015, 01:48:35 PM
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.
12  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: OHV Single stud bridge on: June 11, 2015, 08:40:42 PM
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.
13  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: OHV Single stud bridge on: June 09, 2015, 09:18:11 PM
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.
