Driveline / Re: peerless 400 setup

I just typed in 400 peerless in "Search Box" in upper left hand corner and found 85 posts about those transmissions,i would think you could answer your question there!!!!!
New to forum, new to wanting to mower race.  I'm perusing through Craigslist and there are many affordable mower candidates, but I don't know where to start.  For starters, I want to participate in the local fairground's mower race this year and need to start building a racing mower.  Fabrication is not a problem, I just need a base to start with.  What is the most common size mower motor for Joe-adult wanting to get into the sport?  I have no aspirations of making it to the NASCAR of mower racing, me and the boys just want to have some fun and some beers.  Thx.

A whole month and 118 different views and nobody and nothing. Not even somebody getting mad at me for it not being a lawnmower project

Thanks for nothing

I'm building a racing mower, I plan on using a 17.5 horse motor with centrifugal clutch drinking a #35 chain to a 1 to 1 right angle gear box then to a live axle, my question is, what gears to run on the gearbox and at the axle ? Any opinions?

Don't think it's the starter, know its not the battery. Will pull the top where I can put a wrench on the crank and turn slowly while watching the valves.

The compression release opens the intake valve slightly just prior to full opening.  Remove the valve cover.  If the intake doesn't move off the seat twice then your compression release is broken. Haven't seen or heard of one sticking.  Unfortunately the only alternative is to replace the camshaft.

Could be a weak starter(there is a test for that), weak battery(detectable with a load test), or loose lash on valves as well. Rule those out first.

I have an 18.5 vanguard that will not start. Plenty of spark and gas just will not hit. Spins very easy without plug but
I can stop it with my thumb over plug hole. Does the cam have a compression release stuck or is it something else. Would like to know before I tear into it. :confused: :confused: Thanks
