1  Engine Help / Honda and Clone Engines / Harbor Freight Predator Engines on: June 08, 2014, 03:38:09 PM
Well the Tecumseh died on the kids gokart....trash in the carb lead to gas in the oil which leads to my wallet getting thinner. Looking at the 6.5 Predators and i see Harbor Freight has 3 6.5s with different model numbers. I am looking at them online and will order them online and i dont see a difference between them. Which one to get? The engine will be ran bone stock on a kids gokart. Any help would be great in making a choice. Thanks!!
2  Mower Building / Setup Help / Chassis / Rear axle selection on: May 28, 2014, 11:50:45 PM
 I have scratched aluminum as a choice, so wondering to go tube or solid steel? This is not a all out build so would a solid axle really hurt me that bad with performance? Is their like a standard or common width to use? What about the keyway issue for hubs and brakes and stuff? Get a keyway machined where i need them or do they come with a keyway the whole length of the axle? The hubs i have are for 1 1/4 axle and they have a keyway and a squeeze bolt is that enough to keep it in place from moving side to side in cornering? I know i know lots of questions any answers would be appreciated!! Thanks!    confused confused
3  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / The List on: May 13, 2014, 12:02:21 AM
Getting my list together for parts for my Intek 40 engine....and no first on my list is not a new Kohler/Tecumseh/Honda/Kawasaki/Gerbil engine... lol First on my list is 6611-IV ARC Billet Flywheel. I think i have read on here somewhere this flywheel can be used with the stock starter if a nylon/plastic starter gear is used and the starter is shimmed. Has anyone done this succesfully? High compression with this engine will not be a problem  lol Also what other parts do i need to get the ignition to fire? Different coil brackets? Also can this flywheel be used on a 44 or 49 Intek with maybe just a hub change? Any answers or advice would be appreciated!!

5  Mower Building / Setup Help / Chassis / EC Frontend on: May 11, 2014, 01:42:56 AM
Does anyone know if EC makes a frontend setup for steering that will go over the motor and go in front of the axle beam?
6  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Leaky Lucy on: May 07, 2014, 02:04:16 AM
Just got home from being at work for the last few days to find my new mower gem sitting in the driveway!! Its a hoodless rusty Toro blah blah blah. Plan to scrap the mower and keep the 407777 Intek 40 in all its oil leaking glory!! Its code is 000407YG. Am i correct to assume this means manufactured in April 7 of 2000? And if that is correct is it more than likely im looking at an engine without the upgraded 49 rods? Outfitted with the 5/8 cam ends? Smaller oil pump? Is the rocker arms all the same thru the years for the 40/44/49? any better than the others? Plan to teardown and inspect and check clearances first thing. Anything in particular i should look for or at specifically?  confused Any answers would be great! bigsmile
7  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Vanguard noob question on: April 24, 2014, 10:57:39 PM
Not had any experince with the Vanguard line of engines. Not looking to buy it but to learn about the models that are out there and difference between models. So i ask this question...would this model be a good base to start an engine build with? confused    http://www.ebay.com/itm/23hp-Briggs-Stratton-Vert-Engine-1-1-8-Dx3-5-32-L-Vanguard-16Amp-386777-0118-/360755482227?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item53feb3ce73.   Performance parts readily available? Rods,flyweels,piston upgrades and such...or is this oddball for some reason? Is that a fair price? Any info would be appreciated on this example or anything in this line of engines to avoid. Thanks!

Hello everyone! I would first like to thank everyone for this great site! I have popped in over the last few months to read and gather info...very informative. Though i will admit some of it is over my head  bash. I have a few basic questions to ask first and hope this is the place to put them, if not please excuse the mistake and direct to where i need to be. First question...what do yall mean by an Offy motor?? an offset twin cylinder maybe?? Also since i live in central Arkansas which association would be closest for me to become a part of? I tried to research it but came to dead sites and am still confused as i started  confused. All of them seem very far away for me. A link to it would be VERY appreciated.
