Many say the 820's weak point is the reverse chain... Remember the case is a weak point too, so I would use caution with the thought of "could have used a bigger tire".  It's looking good!

i don't think i will have much trouble with the current tire size since it the stock size, i do need to make a set of braces for the front of the transaxle, my mst had a bolt going from the frame to the case with a spacer inbetween as a brace, stock setup, and the 820 doesn't have provision for that same setup, i don't think i'm going to be breaking this, most of my riding is in mud and light to medium trail duty, there just isn't any really good trails around here that i can find or have access to anymore

well me and my brother are having issues with his murray grass cutter, it's a 98 widebody with a 46in deck, to put it simply, the deck engagement lever won't work, it does fine without the engagement spring, but as soon as you put any kind of tension on it it refuses to move, we actually bent the lever trying and we can't figure it out makes no sense to either of us, so we are doing an electric clutch conversion, as much as i hate electric clutches it's our only choice, good thing we already have the electric clutch assembly, all we will need to do is remove the pulley brakes from the deck and figure out a couple other minor things, we'll leave the factory deck clutch on and just use it as a tensioner, the hardest part will be keeping the part of the electric clutch with the wires from turning but i think i have that figured out too

i'm having an issue with the vtwin on my murray, 23hp briggs off a huskie. i'm not sure if you can call it an issue really, basically it don't like getting wet, when it gets wet it starts misfiring really bad and popping through the carb, after running a short time and it dries out it runs perfectly fine again, is this an issue these briggs v twins have and is there a way to fix it? also can the dual output coil off an opposed twin be used on a v twin?

my brother has found me a gem, for awhile i've been looking for a briggs 5hp flattie for my toro 550 and he got me one today, actually a 6.5hp but it seems to be in good condition, i hope it runs like he was told it did, but it does need a carb, once i get some of my other projects done i'll be dragging out the toro and seeing what i can do with it now that i finally have an engine for it

@Austin_Gore thanks for the offer, i've got a couple new style intakes off a 12hp flattie, they are the same bolt pattern and size as the 6.5hp so i'll probably be using one of those, i also have a couple of the old style carbs that look to be in fair shape, i know one works but the throttle lever has broken loose from the shaft that works the throttle plate, i just need to put it back in position and tack weld it, the real issue will be a gas tank, the mower i want to put this engine on is a 70-73 toro 550 mini mower, the original 5hp briggs had a tank on the engine under the carb, so there's no where to mount a tank anywhere else without making mounts
