Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: Rings for a 31CI OHV briggs?
« on: May 20, 2024, 06:57:42 pm »
Total seal can make anything you want for rings, even recommend the right material for your cylinders. The price is reasonable compared to most oem parts these day, and they can make them in just a few days.

Hopefully we can get some of that back. Just takes a handful of people to get things rolling again. A lot of us did know each other from this forum long before we met in person at a race somewhere. If we weren't building a mower or racing one we were on here.

I know facebook is one of the things that is helping to kill forums like this one. There is so much information available here. I'm going to try to be on here a little more frequently if I can help anyone out.

If it was mine and the limit was 3650 that's where I would be.  Spin that flywheel as fast as you can, who cares where the torque curve is its only there for a split second there isn't enough load on the engine to make a difference after the first ten feet anyway.

Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: 23hp vanguard opinions
« on: August 11, 2016, 01:30:26 pm »
I ran the same set up with a short stroke crank, it worked very well with a killer set of heads and two carbs at 12,000 rpm. If you are running an intake manifold without a killer set of heads its not likely you are reaching rpm like that, so you would benefit from the extra cubic inch. You can still run a longer rod with 23hp crank.

For the ultimate seal on a vanguard, I o-ring the heads and use my own design of copper head gaskets available in every bore size from 30ci up to 38ci including big custom sizes.

Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: which v twin model is it ?
« on: March 22, 2013, 03:12:50 pm »
The 30ci block castings are really light around the cylinders compared to the 35-38ci blocks, I wouldn't recommend using them if you are looking for bigger cubic inch.

If you received an email from me that was bogus, somebody has hacked my account and everything not only on heymow but everything that involves a computer. Please disregard all messages that are not purely business from me. I'm doing everything I can to get the problem solved.
