I am running a governed stock class type mower.  I was thinking of getting rid of the stock head gasket and making a thinner copper gasket to maybe up the ratio a tad.  How thin of a gasket can I run for clearance reasons and how much compression will the stock connecting rod take before it go boom? 

thank you in advance

from carroll: i could not tell by the pictures you posted but i thought we got this straight on the telephone. But  i must have been wrong. the cam should line up like this. the cam on the left is the stock cam and the one on the right is the EC cam.

Its always a possibility the gear was install incorrectly after the cam was nitrited. I double checked all the ones on the shelf and they are per the picture. Hope this helps. Remember to use a good cam lube on the lobes and lifters when you reinstall the cam.

Hey guys I just got another 700 and I went through cleaned all the benonite grease out and put shift keys in from another transmission which look identical and after getting it all together it would shift 1st through 3rd and won't go into 4th or 5th. We went through and checked the gears and washers even swapped washers to make sure that wasn't the problem and no luck. Anyone have anything on this I'm stumped and I have a race sat.

I fixed the problem with the new camshaft yesterday. Turns out, the cam gear was bolted on in the wrong position when I got it from EC. The first picture shows the stock cam on the left and EC's cam on the right. Both of them have the timing mark lined up at the top. The next picture shows how the cam lobes are not even close to being in the same direction. The final picture shows how far off the timing marks are when I lined up the cam lobes in the same position. I hope this post helps out someone else if they come across this issue.

You could change 12 tooth on rear to 16 tooth and use 18 tooth clutch and 18 tooth on gear box and maintain your current final ratio

Thanks, I didn't realize I'd have to go so small on the gearbox.

Right now you have a 5.29-1final ratio.
So just a couple of examples to duplicate your ratio with chain and sprockets 16 teeth on clutch 12teeth on gearbox,20 teeth on clutch 15 teeth on gearbox.
Hope this helps
