Coffee Shop / FXT CLASS DIEING OFF????
« Last post by mod 76 on Today at 08:20:37 AM »
I was reading the rules for the FXT class to see if I can run dual carbs on my motor,  for a up coming race in Wamic Oregon Sept 1st and 2nd .

And it said that due to lack of competitor's/ interest,  that the class will no longer be raced on a national level anymore.

That surprised me!! I was super excited about racing my FXT that weekend , for what would have been my first national race.

And I know that our group will still run them and that I can still race my BP too ..

Either way , it's nice to be racing again after taking a 5yr break

Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: 20hp Vanguard rattles when shutting off.
« Last post by refteck on July 16, 2018, 11:08:45 AM »
After reading it above,  the sound is more like when a motor runs on or tries to run backwards.   Is there a way to test the diodes?

Briggs OHV & Vanguard / 20hp Vanguard rattles when shutting off.
« Last post by refteck on July 16, 2018, 08:22:05 AM »
Hi everyone
I have a model 35 Vanguard, a Performance V Twins short block with stock heads, shimmed springs, ARC flywheel and 2 bbl carb on gas.  If I run hard, when I shut it down it makes a rattle sound and a puff of smoke out the carb, it will do this once every 5 -6 races.
 It all started when my bumper got pushed into my rear tire and finished the race not realizing it was working harder than usual. I have checked the usual, flywheel key, valves, compression.

Any ideas what is happening?

Kohler Engines / Re: Kohler CV14S Walbro LMK carburetor issues.

Hey, so I have a Walbro LMK carburetor on my Kohler Command CV14S with the letters and number K and 3 and 61602 on it. Now Im having some issues with it. It will idle fine and run good while on the gas for maybe a lap and a half and then it will start spitting and sputtering and if you give it any gas it will die but it stays idleing. Any information or ideas as to why its doing this would be helpful. Thanks

I'd say lack of fuel for sure,since it runs good for about a lap and a half,i would start with making sure fuel tank is vented and fuel filter is not plugged,then move forward from there,it sounds like your issue is somewhere between tank and carb.

Not enough fuel,are you using a pump and if you are what is the vacuum source ,or the line is leaking ,maybe the pump is bad. maybe the float level is too low or the float can't drop enough to let much fuel into the float bowl ,possibly the fuel line has a restriction in it

When Ryan Kerr raced with the Kohler he used no flywheel at all ,The only thing he had was a piece of quarter inch aluminum with magnets to trigger the ignition .When he raced in Delaware Ohio  2008 and won the finals I was talking to Bobby Clevland and he wanted me to show him Ryan's mower .When I told him about the no flywheel he wanted to see what it was about,I don't think he believed me.

Isn't this a little off topic :twocents:
