Haven't had time to do anything to with them. Just glad to hear them run good. I found another engine off a trybilt wood chipper. 8.5 Briggs will this work OK on a kart. It has a 1 inch shaft. Is there anything I need to know good or bad about it.I know very little about small engines but wanting to learn

Try following a Briggs Model type and code!

The thing about the 8HP and the 1" Shaft is a 1" Clutch is very Expensive. Other than that just more Power.

I had heard from someone on here that the engine off chipper had a torque problem or something I can't remember.

Only possible difference will be that a chipper engine will usually have a lighter flywheel than what would otherwise be found on a "standard" engine.

I have used the lighter aluminum flywheel from a vertical shaft engine to get faster throttle response on modified engines, works fairly well as a cheap mod.

ok that's what it was just couldn't REMEMBER. I guess that happens the older you get. would you advice me to put a heavy flywheel on it to give it a better balance(I guess).

It's a possibility. Chippers have a lot of mass on the other end of the crank. It's liable to be a little fickle on the tune and possibly jerk your arm while trying to start...but without trying it first it's hard to say. It also depends on whether the chipper was solid or belt driven and had a neutral.

Here's what it's like starting a 5hp motor with a milled head and aluminum flywheel.


Pull faster.


It's honestly not all that bad, but if you have a wimpy pull it won't fire.

Wish I had video. I should dig through the stash and see if I have parts to build another. I know I have a tired 5hp Tecumseh laying around somewhere.

Balance is not the issue. Inertia is the correct terminology.
It takes less horsepower to spin-up a light flywheel.

So I guess on certain Direct Drive Chippers this lighter flywheel allows the revs to come back up faster after getting bogged by a large branch or a VERY leafy green cutting.
Whereas with a stock heavy flywheel they would stall too much.

I don't think so.
The rotating mass in the machinery could be lightened to achieve the same end.
Also, it is probable that the lighter flywheel may be less expensive to produce.

Less chance of stalling a heavy flywheel, again because of inertia.

I thought we were Talking about a Tecumseh.
