Kohler cv20s racing lawn mower loaded w/ Lakota fly ,cylinders, HP cam, bored out 30 over. I have magnetron coils (stein). I have tried 3 sets and still get one cylinder cutting in and out at 2800 to 3000 rpms.
Timing is perfect, no backfires, new spark plugs, racing carb. Trying not to spend anther $500 on Vodoo coils and timing plate.
Any suggestions welcome?

Next, I tore the whole thing down. Luckily it was new enough that everything came apart fairly easily.
My pile of unneeded parts...

I look directly into my front yard from where I sit at my desk, and this morning, among the millions of blades of grass, there was one single blade with a drop of dew on it that was reflecting the sun.  I thought about how one small seemingly insignificant thing can make something stand out so brilliantly among so many.  It was the only blade of grass I noticed.  Find your dew drop.

First, I had to get a mower. I picked up this 2006 Huskee SLT 4200 because I liked the frame design, and it has a big 31 CI one lunger (only problem was at the time I didn't know how much AVS motors cost to build).

Build to the USLMRA rule book.  Then you can race anywhere.  ARMA allows a few things that USLMRA doesn't. 

Read the rule book several times. 

If your unclear on a rule ask an official. 
Thanks cyclone, thats what I've done. I think ive read the rule book 20 times now.

Ok so I'm fairly new to this forum. I've read tons of posts and gotten a lot of good information and ideas from a lot of knowledgable people on here. Thank you all for that!
    Now, I've been racing mowers for about 5 or 6 years now, but it's purely been a family thing until recently. We started off with stock mowers going about 5 mph and have gotten to the point where our racers do about 45 mph. We have no set rules except it has to be a lawn mower frame. So, long story short until this point it was anything goes.  This will be my first attempt at building a "legit" racing mower.  Please feel free to let me know if I did anything wrong. I would hate to drive 200 miles or more to a race, only to get turned away.

Get some zinc additive to add to the (non-synthetic) oil, the oil this day and age don't have enough.  Before you start it, tip it which ever way to let oil run down the cylinder walls and to the valves.  Get it fired up and keep it off idle varying rpm till it's warmed up...while driving. Once it's warmed up start getting on it harder and harder, just like hitting the straights and letting off some through the corners.  Letting off lets it pull oil up to the rings better so it'll flush things out some. After say a half hour of that drop the oil while hot. It'll pry look like metallic paint.  Fill it back up with oil and additive and run it again, drain again and make sure there aren't any bad things in the oil.  I'd continue the conventional oil for the first race or two to help get the rings sealed along with the additive.  After that pick an oil and stay with it.  I've had good luck with Coolpower Green Medium in my ohv....your results may vary.

Thats an awesome story Paul smile George had the funniest, most blunt/truthful but yet most loving personality. I, like yourself haven't spoken since the news hit me. I still don't believe it.. Sad a watery eyed weekend to say the least. My story isnt really a story but more like a short simple memory that i will always remember. It happened last november at the all American when i met him in person for the first time, though we regularly talked on facebook and on the phone we had never met in person, during that weekend it rained a lot, i believe it was saturday that we didnt race. At the end of the day (or the beginning i dont remeber exact details) Justin took out his new radio controlled late model car. I was talking with him when he got it and all i remember him saying is "whoooo heeee! man i can do a lot of cheatin' in thay little engine!" I smiled and yelled out "It aint cheating till you get caught!" he yelled back "AMEN BROTHER!!" man i was grinning from ear to ear we spent a couple hourse just talking after that, it was like George had a way to intantly make friends smile
