LIKE A BOSS!!


18hp Briggs, like a boss!!  We took the mower deck off, but haven't got to drive it around yet.  My friend has a racing go kart, but it's spendy to take it to the track... so I said we could just buy old lawn mowers and race them around the hood... LOL... he was instantly hooked on the idea.  This clean machine came with a different hood/front end but the guy offered us an old front end for it for free.  Might just make it an off road machine.

if that has a Briggs 18 hp,,make DAM sure the engine air deflectors are ALL on the engine,,the 18 horse engine  had a metal plate that cover'd up the spark plug a bit more then normal and a lot of not so  bright people remove'd metal from that area,, this causes the exh valve seat to over heat and come loose,,
pretty much distroying the engine
just a word of warning , air cool'd engines are just that , no air flow and that area over heats quickly

Lawnmower racing is big around here. I have done a lot of work on racing mowers. There are a few stockers but everybody races F/X class. The rules are wide open.
