Check to make sure the crankase breaher is working,  it sounds like it is building crankcase pressure to me.

I don't think a membership is required George this is something the Iowa and Kansas guys got up. I am pretty sure the national race fell through.

The lifters in the model 19 with a alt 212 cam bottoms out under rpm, the bores need a good chamfering to eliminaTE THIS. EC springs and stock vlaves have no issues with clearance or bind. This is a .389ish lift cam at the lobe. Clearance the lifter bores and new gear with no play on key iot should be fine.

And ec sells a steel ring gear that works with any of them no chance of ripping those teeth off.. They can be had off ebay (starters) for 75.00 and have more torque than the OEM.

Hey guys new to the forum.

I recently bought 2 vanguard motors from an estate sale of a former small engine repair man. Got both for $30. A 2008 18hp horizontal shaft and a 1990 14hp vertical shaft both electric start. Both have been stored inside with oil and no gas since being pulled. No rust. Just grime from normal use. Both have good compression and oil is clean and valves are good.

The 18 was missing a flywheel assembly but I bought a used one. So other than some screws for the housing cover the engine is now complete as far as I know. I'm told with some gas and a battery it should start and run. 

The 14 is missing the air cleaner assembly, the screen for the shroud housing over flywheel and screws for housing.  That's all as far as I know.

My questions;

1. What is value as is & what is value with both running, what can I sell each of them for?
2. Is it worth putting money into them to hear them run?
3. What can they be used for? Are they a popular item?

Open to all advice! Thanks! Pics coming soon!

I suggest messaging tyler, he has one matched to the billet flywheels for just over 100$ (130 i think) or if you have 13:1 compression or less with the right kill switch this is by far the cheapest solution http://www.ebay.com/itm/Briggs-stratton-691564-693469-808106-STARTER-NEW-/290356892368?hash=item439a9e92d0&vxp=mtr
