Default my big block build

i am finally big blocking my cart. i found a good used 18hp briggs on ebay for $455 shipped to the door. although i was so excited about doing this i didnt pay attention to a lot of details on the engine. once i got it i realized it didnt have the starter solenoid and no rectifier. no big deal though, i already talked to tom at cpp about getting a new stator, coils, and a rectifier. i have already installed the rev kit from tom and removed the gov. but, during the process of removing the sling weights and compression release from the cam, i pretty much trashed the cam. i scared it up some grinding down the rivets and knocked out the end ball out the end of the cam. so, now i will be getting a new cam for it. i have also almost finished my carrier. i did get in my clutch today do now i can work on motor and belt alignment.

so far its been fun. im a little nervous about setting the valves but, ill get it figured out. im going to take the all the sheet metal for the motor and have it painted this weekend. im kinda debating painting the engine, but not sure how well that will work out. i might call a shop thats here and see about having the block cleaned.

B, get it in and get it running. You can always pretty it up later.....and watch those little oil O rings when you put it back together.
