Good day folks. Iím working off a mastercraft/mtd frame. Stock engine was a single cylinder 12hp B&S, Iím putting in a brand new 24Hp vtwin.

Looking for ideas as to how to make the new engine fit. Has anyone done similar? I was thinking about stretching the frame a few inches but not sure if this is the best option. Any input would be happily welcomed.

Hey guys, I'm new to all of this. Can I make a mower fast, tune a carb, swap pulleys?? Yes, yes, and yes. Me and a bunch of buddies do this at work for fun and its a blast. We get a good turnout of people, drink a few beers, and have a big cook out! We have 50/50s, and a donation jar. Why? We donate to a great cause for every race! Absolutely NO money is kept, and it feels awesome. Anyways here are a few of my questions!

1. What is a vanguard motor?
2. Are they the only motor you can get performance aftermarket parts for? I.E. cams, valves..etc.
3. What are some tips and tricks to getting "stock" mowers through a corner? Considering stock components, in original position.
4. Whats the easiest way, or best way, to lower the mower?
5. Does everyone weld there rearend for posi?

Thanks in advance for any replys! Just looking for a little edge over my work friends haha.

Ordered my new engine today. Gonna be a brand spanking new briggs and Stratton 24Hp vtwin pro series. Should be enough to do what I want.

Would have loved to get a vanguard, but Iíll see how this one does for now. If I can go bigger in the future, I have 2 carcass vanguards that need new blocks my small engine guy is willing to give me. They are just too big for the current race Iím building for.
