I hope at this point that anyone reading this would understand that high rpm Briggs require an aftermarket (billet) flywheel.

The original tank I have had the "cup" where the main jet goes rust out. The tank survived so I did the derust trick, shake with kerosene and nuts and bolts. JB welded a bracket on top. Did I mention...

Wow. Thanks for the safety info. Really had no idea that a slight port job and intake/exhaust mods might allow 7k+ rpm. The kart I have in mind is the largest of them, and has a live axle and center...
