What size rear tires?
With 6"(13"), and a 700, we used an 8"to 5", then a 15 trans. The rear we had in 2 tooth increments from 42-56
With 8" (16"), we used a 12 on the trans. All else remained the same.

90' straight, we would probably have a 52 or 54 on it, and spin it about 6500.

I have been told where it came from now.
Austin, you are on the right track. The difference in altitude from where it was living to where it is now will require some carb tweaks, like you are doing.
Unless it's been changed, thats not an EC carb. It's a Bertrand.
Unless you like spending the money, you dont have to run it on 112. Mix it 50/50 with premium, NO ETHANOL.
Also, unless changed, it's my cylinder head and one of our Isky cam's in it.

What color jet and emulsion tube?
What exactly constitutes "built" in your case?
From what I gather from your post, it will increase rpm, it just bogs and has difficulty doing so? At all rpm ranges, or just from low rpm?

Putting the carbs in their own store would be kind of a waste in my opinion. Simply break it down by manufacturer (Tecumseh/Briggs/Kawasucki/ect) and list them by application. Single cylinder, twin cylinder, open class, ect.

If the carbs were put into their own "store", then it would be best that it was linked directly to everything else in one shopping cart. Otherwise, say you want to buy a carb, a rear axle and some spindles. If they had separate carts, I I had to check out once for the carb, then again for the chassis parts, it would just waste time and irritate me.

Some comprehensive videos on how to make the adjustments on the carbs would also be good for those just starting out, or new to the carb. I still get guys who have been racing for 6+ years asking how to adjust their Walbro LMT..and I dont even touch those icky Briggs anymore.

Video of George doing the chicken dance would also provide some humor, and you could even charge as a "pay-per-view". Guarenteed revenue generator right there!

Back when I ran chain, I always installed it so the closed end was toward the direction the chain was moving. That way, contact with something could not push it off.

What is inert for $500, Alex?
7  General / Newcomers / Re: New racer from wi on: July 18, 2015, 07:02:39 AM
Well, you could move the seat back.
You could build a bigger chassis.
You could saw your legs off at the knee. Thats weight reduction too.
Or just deal with it.
8  General / Coffee Shop / Re: Exaust question on: July 18, 2015, 07:00:55 AM
Just make it fit the mower.
And have the smoothest bends/transitions possible.
9  General / Coffee Shop / Re: Exaust question on: July 17, 2015, 03:55:42 PM
Um 90? 4 times?

Or, just use square tube?
10  Engine Help / Briggs Flathead / Re: best briggs parts for a oppose twin on: July 17, 2015, 11:07:35 AM
Opposed twin in supermod? Isn't that similar to bringing a rubber knife to a gun fight?

If I recall, those are the parts Snowy used when setting up the transmissions that he used for race.
13  General / Newcomers / Re: New racer from wi on: July 12, 2015, 10:37:47 AM
By the use of the class name GP, I assume you ae racing with the WILMRA?
If so, I dont know what info the will give you, but I would try to pick the brain of Brandon Schug. That kid's got his GP figured out.

Did you give Force my message for me? You never said in your text.
15  Engine Help / Kohler Engines / Re: How much can I up the compression on a stock CV490s on: July 07, 2015, 06:52:52 AM
What's the compressed thickness of the stock gasket?
Unless Kohler used a 3/4" sheet of plywood to make the gasket, you're really not going to gain much of anything with a thinner gasket.
