You can do anything to this motor that you can do to a v8. You have to decide how far you are willing to go, a fully built 31 can run you $1800 in parts alone.

Hello all, I am trying to build an FXT with a horizontal shaft engine. I have looked high and low but cant seem to find build pics of the setup. I have seen one where the belt runs straight from the engine to the rear with some giant aluminum guard but there has to be another way. The mowers around here mostly run vertical shaft engines except for one and you can not see the driveline at all.
please help! pics and advise would be greatly appreciated! I plan on trying to run a belt or belts from the engine to a jackshaft and chain to the rear. thanks guys.

Ok guys thanks for some input , I'll have to do some figuring,  may try it since it's free, if it bends then I'm not out any cash just time in the man cave, and be honest who doesn't want a reason to be in there more..lol.

   Does anyone know how Dixie Chopper gets by with advertising as "The World's Fastest Lawn Mower"?  There has to be some documentation somewhere, doesn't there?

Respectfully; Rodney Rom; Rom's Reworks; Butler, MO

P.S. I know it isn't a mower, but I hold the unofficial speed record for the Vietnam War-era Navy NC-2 WWII-Jeep-based ground-support equipment generator vehicle at 62 MPH.  This is a unit with the rear axle switched to the front (no steering) and the steering done with 14x4.50-6 rear wheels, one on each corner, forklift style.  The transfer case drives the generators when needed for aircraft support.  Three witnesses: AS(H)3 Bill Weidman from Hatboro, PA; AS(H)3 Kirby Nanna from Barberton, OH; and AS(M)3 Charles Psaila from Queens, NY.  Bill slowed after shifting from 1st to 2nd; Charlie satyed with me through 2nd gear; I overran the 60 MPH speedo in 3rd to the governor's max.  Kirby was the following-vehicle driver.  Location -- Pier Road, between NAS Norfolk (Virginia) and Pier 12 at Norfolk Naval Base.  Summer, 1969.  No roll bar, either...

The arc rod uses the newer avs piston.  Which is a much better design in all aspects.

I've ran a 3/4 axle in my G/P for two years now and I have a 17.5 briggs in my mower. I have ha good luck with it. Myself I wouldn't be scared to use 3/4 I did bend one but I flipped the mower and it landed odd that was the only way ive bent one. And I push my mower hard. Thats my 2 cents on it.

I did not know the rod from Arc was not stock length. What are the sizes? Will the arc not work with the stock piston?
