Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: How far can a 35/38 Vanguard block be bored
« on: September 06, 2022, 09:45:11 pm »
Depending on how straight the bore and cast block is, 3.120 is an outer limit. If you have issues at 3.150, you may have to resleeve.
I would rather have a 2.99 piston to clean up the block, and be able to hone out to fix and issue, that to resleeve.
Just a thought.

Heymow is really a race oriented site, but I will give you something to check out.
Make sure your RPM's are 3650. Or whatever they list a HP @ RPM range.

Since the classes we race are 4 stroke based engines, no, no electric race motors.

Sometimes them $5 Chinese carbs are not worth it.

Got the eBay sump today and it does have the larger oil pump. Georotor gears are twice the diameter of the original.  Wonder why the running change?

So the engines last longer.

Overdrive takes the torque out of the equation, or lessens it,
that keeps from putting too much stress on the gears and
breaking the tranny.

Carb is dirty if you have to run choke.

If you  did not use a new kit when you cleaned it, there could be leaks from the needle or other gaskets,
or a combination of both.

I have an idea I want to add as well. I do miss a certain boat anchor club.

Briggs Flathead / Re: Opposed fuel pump

Thanks Al, I've read how to do it. My built in pump works, just wondering if there was an advantage to separate them, other than just that. Thanks

The advantage is that someone may have a regular fuel pump in the pits if they are separate.
Not so much on someone having an Oppy pump in a pinch.
