It will be much easier to gear and have more torque if gearbox ratio is less than 1to1

Its not too much for the gearbox to handle... Looks good. Its a shame that you aren't going to race it competitively...

Thanks for the help coming in on the gearing still not really sure on which way to go for starting point.
And would the 5" pulley on motor and gear box be to much for it being 1:1 to the gearbox as far as gearbox rpm.
And as far as the rear sprockets if it makes it easier or any difference I can get diff rear sprockets those  are just some I have.

Clay holds up a little bit better than black dirt, but tends to have more rock and stone.

Any surface can be made better by mixing in organic material, such as leaves, grass clippings or dried animal dung. Adding this type of material helps the track better hold moisture.

Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: 16hp flywheel

Safety.  The stock flywheel is designed to spin at stock RPM's.   Any faster and you run the risk of it exploding. 

With a better carb it will spin much faster than stock.

Disregard solenoid.  Wire direct to positive battery post.  Or attach wire to solenoid post coming from the positive battery post.
Briggs OHV & Vanguard / 16hp flywheel

Is it required to replace the flywheel on a vanguard 16hp twin to remove the governor?  I'm not going to be revving it massively high it's just to put a different carb on it.  If so what would the effects be on keeping it stock?  Thanks

Hi all
Been into doing mowers up for some time now as I'm 16 and have been working on weekends for some years.  I've managed to scrape around and getting my first mower this weekend - a countax k14T.  As for intelligence Irent my own workshop where I repair and restore small engines and machinery so will be more than happy to help with eny issues.
I haven't really seen mower racing in the UK as much but plenty of tracks around the place for trials.
Hope to talk to you soon!
