how can i get more hp from my briggs : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread

hey whats up? i have a craftsman/briggs 5hp engine from a wood chipper. its a horizontal shaft which i plan to put on my go cart. i have had it bored +.020,head machined for more compression,new valves,new piston,new rings. i would like to know what else i can do to get top notch performance from this engine. id like my go cart to go as fast as possible. how much hp should i get whem im done. and do u have any sites i can buy parts from like cams and rods and stuff like that.and im not quite sure on how to hook the throttle cable up?

make it a new moter running more power and put a turbo on it and have some fun, that about all u can do after doing what u have done. but u could try advancing the timing as mush as u can, good lucky any way

take the carb apart and find the main jet drill the holes 1 or 2 64ths bigger by hand untill it stars to run a little funny then take the air filter off and put a filter skin on instead need any more halp email me
