Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Carrier performance new website!
« on: February 21, 2017, 06:51:53 PM »
After a lot of thinking we have decided to make a website to buy high performance V twin stuff. No one sells stuff to help people build national competitive engines so we decided to offer high Horsepower parts. Here is our new website, browse our parts and tell your friends :) check in often we will constantly be adding new parts to the site.  If the moderators or website owner could add this to the links page that would be great thanks :)

Briggs OHV & Vanguard / New billet race pistons
« on: January 29, 2017, 08:35:29 PM »
FELLOW RACERS!! Carrier performance is very proud to announce its partnership with Havoc LLC to supply you with what we believe are the best pistons on the market today! We are going to offer standard bore billet race pistons for the three Briggs and Stratton vanguard model engines and intek engine line up. These are billet pistons meaning that they are made from a single piece of aluminum just like JE, Wiseco or Arias. These pistons feature skeletonized skirts for weight reduction, gas ports to reduce power loss and help ring seal, polished piston tops and nylon wrist pin locks to ensure no wrist pin lock failures. These pistons were made with the everyday racer in mind. They are made to be drop in direct replacement plat tops. No one should have to use cast pistons and risk piston failure due to the high cost of race pistons, we set out to solve that problem. These pistons are sold without rings or wrist pins because they have been designed to use the oem wrings and wrist pins. This decision was made to reduce costs to the racer. Why pay for something that you may not even need? 99% of the time wrist pins are fine when taking apart a stock engine and some times the rings are too. If they aren't then rings or wrist pins are a briggs and stratton part number so it is fast easy and cheap to get the replacement parts, most local small engine shop will be able to get you some fast. The current piston that we have ready for everyone is the vanguard model 35 piston (18-20hp ). All vanguard pistons have been designed to be used with arc long rods. So far the model 35 pistons are well over 30 grams lighter than oem cast pistons. We are currently developing the others but this process takes time. One set of vanguard pistons retails for 200$usd.This is roughly 100$ cheaper than our competitors for what we think is a higher quality product! Intek pistons may be priced a little higher since they are larger.

Post your Pics! / A new canadian fxt style mowchine (pro-modified)
« on: July 14, 2014, 06:51:11 PM »
Hi guys, I am currently in the works of building an fxt style machine. Here in quebec its the pro modified class. I will be running an 18hp horizontal vanguard, feel free to guide me towords the right choices for the engine. I am a briggs master service technician and have been building race engines for many years but these engines have been using mostly stock parts, so i am new to a complete outlaw engine. Here is the chassis so far everything is tack welded and nothing finalized, its a spare time project since i am currently deep into my race season :P All comments and advice is welcome! Want to make the best machine possible :) aiming for 250lbs or less and the egine hase to have minimum 30-35 hp

Briggs OHV & Vanguard / shaving stock pistons
« on: June 09, 2014, 07:24:32 PM »
Hi I know I have seen it before but I can't find it, when shaving the pistons for long rods what's a good thickness left between the compression ring and the top of the piston? My compression ring is .045 and I have .055 left to the top of the piston, is this okay?

I was wondering since I do not currently have access to a dyno does anyone know how retarding the cam in a 350000 effect the torq curve? does it change it to a higher rpm? Just very curious thanks  :)

Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Intek 31 cube oil overflow
« on: July 10, 2013, 03:31:36 PM »
Any advice would help a lot here since i havent had this probleme yet  :doh: Basically i have a briggs 31 cube without any performance parts but built with old school tricks. So i have not had an intek that had oil overflow out of the breather but this one does a lot. I currently have a catch can connected to a tube that runs to the stock breather. The problem is that my catch can filled up to the point of spewing everywhere during a ten lap race. I was wondering first of all if this is normal since i know many of you do run catch cans, secondly what the best catch can setup would be, thirdly, whether or not i should remove the steel flap in the breather and lastly if i should run a return line back into the block or a ideal location. Thanks in advance  :)

Briggs OHV & Vanguard / G-Team built oppy carb
« on: July 02, 2013, 05:11:17 PM »
This weekend I tried out my mower.. I came to realise that after two laps the engine would run out of fuel and sputter to a stop. I let it sit for thirty seconds and it starts up fine and runs another two laps until it runs out of fuel. My impression is that the inlet of the carb is too small. My current setup is a 31ci single intek that's not built. The carburetor is an oppy carburetor built by G-team that the stock fuel pump has been bypassed for the fuel to enter directly into the bowl. I am currently running a gravity feed system and i know that's not the problem since it worked great this winter with another carb  :doh: , what I was wonder was if the entrance of the carb for the fuel is too small and if so would adding a mikuni vacume pump solve the problem? Anyone already had this problem? Any help would be great I race this weekend..  :)
