I had a lot of tire clearance issues but I managed to fix that. I need an idea for a hanger to support it , also is this exhaust long enough so I don't burn my valves and such? any feedback is appreciated .

Looks pretty good to me. Similar to what I did. Weld a tab to it 1/2 to 3/4 of the way back, and bracket it to the frame. You might want to cut open the last joint in a pie-shape and tuck the pipe up tighter.

As for the burnt valve thing- you have WAAAY too much pipe to worry about that. Not to crack open a can of worms or anything, but I have run open headers 6" and even shorter (and MANY times over MANY years) and NEVER had one'a those mythical unicorn burnt valve problems...

I agree 100% I have been running open headers too and never burnt my valves up

If you still have this engine, I had one and I'll tell you what, them things are built tough. I don't care what anyone says, it may say 12.5hp, but that thing will go. Just don't do less than 8 inches of exhaust, because I did, and my valves didn't burn up, but the connecting rod blew into 3 pieces, but only had minor scoring on the crank, and didn't blow through the engine, I re-used the block on another 12.5hp.

Your exhaust had nothing to do with your internal failure. Please try to avoid misleading the public!

Yeah, anyone can clearly see that the cause was a bad connection between the seat and the steering wheel!   lol! cheers lol! 

Pipe sounds great!  Cool Also if you look up Doc's flatty build, I put the part numbers in there for the upgraded con rod and dog bone... Just in case you want to rev it to the max without a worry.  Cool Wink

Right-on brotha. All you need is the rod from B&S and the bone from ACR. And a little RTV silicone to seal her up again. Well, I guess you'd need a head gasket too, but anyway, it's a fairly cheap insurance if you're as tough on equipment as I am.  Cool Laughing Razz
