This is a great site. I wish more people would post stuff on here. With all the great information on here, I?d hate to see it disappear?

Yes it is!  8)

Vertical shaft or horizontal shaft engine? If it?s horizontal I guess you could have a belt clutch to a jackshaft and then chain to your rear axle? If it?s vertical use a belt clutch normally like a mower would have to your gearbox then chain to rear axle? What ideas did you have? What do the other racers do?

   You don't say which transaxle you are wanting to use, but I just Posted information on the Peerless 820 and MST transaxles.  You might want to check them out.

Would be a 900 series peerless. I'm reading up on all your posts now. Thanks

Thanks for sharing, neat information!

25&28 have different stroke cranks but same bores. Boring and sleeving to fit a 31 piston in your 25 might only put you at 28cid anyway. Finding a complete engine might be easier and cheaper to cut grass.

Driveline / Transaxle gearing

Gearing options when using a transaxle, Right now I'm setup with a near 1-2 ratio input and 12-1 in top gear to get a total ratio of 6-1. I found another transaxle that had top gear 6-1, (I'm pretty sure) So to achieve the same crank to axle ratio I can go 1-1 on pulleys, Other than the two things that came to mind of benefit, that I can run a significantly smaller engine pulley and my transaxle input will not be over driven.

Is there anything else to be gained from this gearing? any feel differences? any reasons why the overdrive is a better option?

Reusable is one of the big things I’d say. Old style headgaskets work good too, if you find one that isn’t blown. They don’t tear apart after being torqued and removed.

Planning to file fit the 0.020 rings to standard piston.

Would someone be able to verify part numbers for me?
The newest 31 avs piston is 594539 correct?

Which 0.020 ring set is best for the 594539 piston: 792649 or 594438

I am piecing an engine together and don't have a date tag to go by. Thanks for the help

What about valve guides? Is it best to replace them when rebuilding a 28 flathead for racing?
