1  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: vanguard head gaskets on: January 30, 2015, 12:29:48 PM
It's of no help, but for some reason, this popped into my head.

You mean the ARC link?
Unless EC makes one now as well?

At any rate, if you are going to leave the balancer in, it is a must. As far as reliability goes, I ran an engine with one for a full season, turned it 6,000 all year with no problems. Thats my only experience with them however.

No tricycle races next weekend. Not until Feb. 14th.
Not my first broken spindle. Doubt it will be my last.

Aftermarket piston, sure. You stated move the wrist pin. That does not immediately imply obtaining a different piston..
Some could read that as fire up the die-grinder and get hogging.
Once the piston is cast, forged or machined, your not going to change the pin location. Even if you decided to offset bush it, what would be gained? Wow, a whole .025" maybe. That's not going to worth the time and effort, therefore nonsensical. Enlarging the pin hole in the piston will not be feasible on many due to the fact they are already near the ring lands.
Chicks are not going to suddenly get all frisky when you tell them you have .025" more stroke than the next guy.

How, exactly, does one move the piston pin location in the piston?
I'm intrigued.
6  General / Coffee Shop / Re: Stroker motor on: January 26, 2015, 11:29:20 AM
HUH?

If one adds stroke, then one must decrease rod length. Pistons dont like to come out of the bore. Much.

Longer stroke=shorter rod. Unless you enjoy making piston cookies.
I've made a few in my day. They were not as good as Chips Ahoy or Oreo's.

If one were to read through what I posted in here, nowhere will you find that I recommend that .125" be cut off the head.
 In fact, I stated a simple observation that an engine with minimal material removed from the head ran just as strong as one with .125" removed.

Actually, the question was how much to shave off the head.
It was given that he was using a stock rod and piston, but that is a moot point, when it was simply stated as fact, and not question.
9  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: briggs 31 ohv head on: January 23, 2015, 04:00:31 PM
shaved head or no shaved head, 4000 rpm at 30* timing you are going to break crank, .125 off head, arc rod and crank will turn 6500 rpm all day long at 30*, don't know how much they took off block to true it but I have .125 off the head and runs dang good

Huh? So you need to keep it over 4000 rpm, then the crank wont break?
Or, are you saying "If you turn it over 4000 rpm, you will break the crank regardless of what mods are done".?
Our Briggs ran pretty good too..
10  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: briggs 31 ohv head on: January 23, 2015, 12:49:39 PM
SO WHY DID YOU STOP BREAKING THEM?

Pulled some timing, quit turning over 6K, stopped cutting the heads, and then switched to Tecumseh.
The switch to Tecumseh was the biggest gain in reliability and power.
11  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: briggs 31 ohv head on: January 23, 2015, 09:53:24 AM
In a 15 race stretch, I broke 6 cranks.
I was good at it.
Then, I quit breaking them.
But, what do I know.
12  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: briggs 31 ohv head on: January 22, 2015, 05:50:40 PM
For what it's worth, my brother in law and I had identical Briggs OHV's. Same cam, carb, porting, ect. Only difference was my head was cut .125". His was only trued, maybe .015" off. We would run dead even down the straights, and we swapped mowers at times, and could tell no diffence between the two.

Bert could buy a billet wheel a month just from recycled Bud Light cans. Said Bud Light cans are also more structurally sound than his Pinto.

I could be wrong, but based off grammar and other posts, I'm fairly certain the OP is not in the continental U.S., so ARMA or USLMRA rules dont exactly apply.
15  Engine Help / Briggs Flathead / Re: looking for more torque off the line 16hp briggs twin on: January 07, 2015, 06:43:42 AM
Oh boy. This again..
And Ed said "The time Rooster came up to Wisconsin, he ended up 2 laps down to OHV singles".
