What happen to Grasscar racing. They had a real good front spindles.

Let's make a sub-section for sub-sections, and then categories for each individual engine component. That way, if you are looking for info on vintage Briggs piston rings, you can go to the Briggs vintage piston ring section..
This site has a search feature. It's pretty simple to use. One just clicks on search, then types in a few key words and bam, things magically appear.

   No, it isn't.  The link you gave goes to Other Engines - Info on Engines not Listed Above.  This is for engines other than Kohler, Tecumseh, Briggs and Honda/Clone, which are engines that have their own Help sections.  A Fits All section would be for tips that might work on not only Other Engines -- Kawasaki, Onan, etc. -- but also on Kohler, Tecumseh, Briggs and Honda/Clone. The recent "Copper head gaskets" post is a good example of something that would benefit all engines, and if it were put into the Other Engines section, it would be difficult for mainstream-engine users to find.

   If you're concerned about stretching Admin thinner than they already are by adding another section, I'll volunteer to be Moderator for this section.

   Input from the general membership...?

Copper is one of the few metals that anneals differently. I still just let my gaskets heat/cool naturally in the engine and re-torque the heads in cycles.

Here is a link to the info George quoted,

Thats not correct for copper.
Annealing, in metallurgy and materials science, is a heat treatment that alters the physical and sometimes chemical properties of a material to increase its ductility and to make it more workable. It involves heating a material to above its critical temperature, maintaining a suitable temperature, and then cooling. Annealing can induce ductility, soften material, relieve internal stresses, refine the structure by making it homogeneous, and improve cold working properties.
In the cases of copper, steel, silver, and brass, this process is performed by heating the material (generally until glowing) for a while and then slowly letting it cool to room temperature in still air. Copper, silver and brass can be cooled slowly in air, or quickly by quenching in water, unlike ferrous metals, such as steel, which must be cooled slowly to anneal. In this fashion, the metal is softened and prepared for further work—such as shaping, stamping, or forming.

When you anneal you get them hot until they turn all different colors then quinch them in cold water that's what i've been told, If that's correct when you dump them in cold water they get harder not softer.

STOCK is 220inlbs I always did race motors at 250inlbs regardless of gasket used

What bolt torque do you use with a copper head gasket?
