    I believe you, massacre, it will be a rush for me as well no doubt. Hello all As you know, (from a car site) "Heavier flywheel helps with momentum of the engine to offset dumping the clutch. Lighter flywheel helps engine rev faster. Since you have fairly light weight and some fairly low gears...

    tecumseh-ohh build

    The 3000/3300 is all I have experience with and for years I haven't even thought of changing. I.ve only used a yellow spring(yes they wear out!) and just recently put in #3 hole because I figure I have enough torque already out of the hole so let the TC 1-7.6 and motor head for the mountains...

    newly built motor fail, need advice

    Hello all, O happy day! I tore the motor down, didn't see anything strange. Back together w/ a new head gasket, lash .002, choking it, it starts after 5-6 pulls. I run it about 15 minutes. The magnetic oil plug had 3 tiny metal strands attached. Is that normal for a new build?

    Hey delray, how much stall are you using on the dragbike? Do you want the driven to shift up slowly or quickly with a big-torque motor? Is 1-7.6 gearing for drags about right?

    Tecumseh Motorsports OHV 195cc

    How much stall? Holy-moly 8200 is way up there. What's your E.T. at 125 and how fast you guys going? What ratio on your sprockets? Is it a 30 or 40 TC or some other $$$ clutch?

    delray, I wish the big-time mini events were closer, I'd be there. , It was eye-opening to see the power of displacement between the 196 and 212 series of motors, How do you set your Torque converter for off-road drags like this, gearing? Does top speed matter for a 125 ft drag? Do you see...
