Good Morning!! I've read the forums here and other places without ever posting. Figured I would share my newest build. G16 with a built vanny... Many of my parts are backordered so parts have just been trickling in here and there so progress will be slow until they arrive. I'm currently waiting on heads, brakes, long travel kit, and seats. This is what I'm starting with.20200607_164700.jpg

Howdy!! Its a 18hp, Carrier Performance model 38 heads, ported, larger SS valves, Rev kit. Cheetah cam, flat top wiseco pistons, billet rods and flywheel. I am kicking around the idea of twin 28mm mikuni for the ease of tuning. I've got a comet 780r clutch I was going to start with, not sure how it will handle this twin.....

Nice!
We tried 28mm flat sides on a 23hp with #30 heads and they wouldn't feed it enough air, went to 36mm round slides and all was well. The #38 head chambers are wider then the 18/20 bore so you may want to match the bore to the chamber and trim the head gasket, otherwise there's a lip for carbon to build up and does interfere a bit with the fuel charge gettin' down the bore:twocents:

Awesome, I appreciate the info! I will for sure match my gaskets to alleviate that issue. I have access to the ec 2 barrel kit but wasn't sure about the tuneablity of that carb. I really like the idea of being able to tune each cylinder individually...

Am I the only one that will mock something up and then stare at it forever? Just to run probable fitment issues through my head before its even remotely close to being done? In this case, my carb setup. I just don't think I'm gonna have the room for twin mikuni's..

Well, file fit my rings and checked clearances at rod journals. Ugh!! Undersized clearances 🤨.... Stopped me dead. I'm running the ARC rods, now i gotta call them and see if they offer a different bearing. Joy!!
