2  For Sale / Want To Buy / Who Has It? / WTB: OPPY RACE CARB on: March 29, 2015, 01:35:29 PM
Looking for a race ready carb for a 46ci oppy. Has billet rods, precision cam, etc so bone stock will not cut it. I have 2 weeks until the first race of the season and noticed the base of my carb is broken.  Oppy guys please help!! Lol. Thanx all!

Does anyone have the link to Roosters post on oiling mods? I found it once last year and now I cant. Been typing different things in the search bar but just not coming across it. A link would be great. Thank you!

Ok. Heres the latest. Engine guy finally sends out the billet rods for my 46ci oppy. Only problem, again, is they are for a pressure lube. I have a splash lube. Has anyone ever attempted to convert a billet rod to a splash lube by drilling it? Im getting a little desperate here. First race is in 3 weeks and I cant afford to send these back AGAIN and wait GOD knows how long for him to send them back to me wrong AGAIN.  Opinions are greatly appreciated!
PS: I did get the model 28 pistons n wristpins, measured them out with these rods and it will work out perfectly so Thank You all for the input!

Thanks man. Never heard too much about them, so I figured if they were any good I wouldve seen or heard of one sooner. Appreciate the info bud!

Just got my hands on a Kohler 20hp opposed. I haven't opened it up yet but has a side draft carb, aluminum intake, pressure lube. Just wondering if anyone has ever raced any of these motors and is it worth looking into or are they junk? Thanks guys!

Jim thanks for your help bud. Really. I just ordered the pistons. Should be good to go so long as this guy makes good on the rods. Should be an even swap. I hope. Our first race is April and I found an old Montgomery Ward that I decided to build for this year. So the clock is ticking lol. If I don't hear back I'll just order the right rods and work it out somehow. Thanks again guys. You really saved this redneck Yankees day!!

Would the model 28 pistons work then? Im not sleeving this thing unless I absolutley have to. Are the wristpin heights the same on the model 28 and 31AVS?
11  Engine Help / Briggs Flathead / Re: OPPOSED TWIN BILLET RODS on: February 27, 2015, 04:39:27 PM
That is pretty much exactly the confirmation I needed. Thank you. I did not put the cam in yet, and I did notice the rods were not angled and the top rod cap just barely cleared the block. I had a strong feeling wristpin height needed to be different. Thanks again bud I really appreciate the help.
These rods will be shipped back out tomorrow in exchange for the 46 rods. If I can get this guy on the phone. Pistons will be ordered tonight. The 31AVS pistons are for the same bore correct? Their not oversized?
12  Engine Help / Briggs Flathead / Re: OPPOSED TWIN BILLET RODS on: February 27, 2015, 03:48:44 PM
461707, and no I have stock pistons. Im kind of guessing stock wont work. Lol. Am I looking for a certain wristpin height?
13  Engine Help / Briggs Flathead / OPPOSED TWIN BILLET RODS on: February 27, 2015, 03:13:30 PM
Ok all 3 of you oppy lovers  lol I have a question. I have a 46ci oppy. I went ahead and had a cam ground for it and ordered a set of ARC Billet rods. Heres the dilemma. I wont mention the name of the guy who ground the cam, though he is well known. He sent me a set of 42ci billet rods (#6302). When I called to tell him they were wrong, he said the 42 and 46 are the same size. I know their not, Ive been running oppys for a few years now. Anyway I looked them up and saw 42's are 4.96 and the 46 are 4.87. Didnt think it was a big difference. Well my piston is sitting 1/2 inch above the deck. Put a call in to the "engine guy" and havent heard back. Is there a certain piston I have to run with these? Does the model 28 piston have a different wristpin height than a stock piston? Im a little on the frustrated side right now so I do apologize. Im very disappointed in this guy. After spending a decent chunk of change, I would hope to get the right combination.....not just sell me parts. Any help would be very appreciated. Thanks all!

That's exactly what I thought! When I used that calculator, the mph went up as I increased the trans gear and that's what confused me. I ended up figuring a 15/42 combo which just seems wrong to me. There's going to be a lot of trial and error in this one lol. Thank you for the input! I'll take all the input I can get!
