no the bore is perfect dude and i havent had enough time to inspect the crank but will do on thursday plus i found where most of the weight was coming from lol that steel flywheel is about 24lbs.

but i'll have to order pistons, connecting rods, piston rings, a new camshaft, exhaust valve and a gasket set which would be about $280 estimate

axle, hubs, sprocket, clutch, bearingings, lock collars ect basically the whole rear end of a kart so i have to go cancel the order and shop around so instead of a reverse trike i'll make some kind of a rail/dragster type kart

what kind of tranny? BTW there are some twin brigs on hey mow going up to 11k rpm.

but i was wondering they make a connecting rod for the ch730 series engine thats .010 longer and was wondering if i could use it with the factory crank and wouldnt it give the engine a higher comp and longer stroke since its driving the piston up higher.

the trans is off the tractor i revived the twin from, 6 speed with reverse, and its a heavy mother. 11K on a twin.....scary...... and yes with a longer stroke youll get compression increases, but stuff specially sized especially billet rods is gonna cost u
