briggs 11hp ohv
« on: April 22, 2014, 11:13:23 PM »
Can these be modified to go faster? Where to get parts? Is this a good motor for a race mower project?

Anything can be made to go faster. Keep in mind the class rules and if it is off the governor, it gets a billet flywheel.

IT'S A FLATHEAD, I CANNOT TEL IF IT A VERTICAL OR HORIZONTAL CRANKSHAFT STYLE ENGINE. IF IT'S A HORIZONTAL IT PROBABLY WON'T WORK FOR YOU IN LAWNMOWER RACING. WHAT YOU NEED IS THE FIRST 2 NUMBERS OF THE MODEL NUMBER. IF IT'S A 28 THAT'S AND VERTICAL THAT'S GOOD IF NOT YOU MAY WANT TO SKIP IT AND KEEP LOOKING.

WHAT CLASS ARE YOU GOING TO RUN?  IT MAY NOT BE LEGAL IN YOUR CLASS. THERE IS NO STUPID QUESTION IF YOU DON'T KNOW THE ANSWER
