I ordered the 5507 header...according to the LO 206 rule set part 34.a "Header must be RLV Model 5507 or 5506 for all classes" so I got the 5507 as it has the attached brace.http://www.briggsandstratton.com/engines-racing/~/media/Files/product_catalog/Briggs%20Racing/2013%20Local%20Option%20and%20Junior%20206%20Engine%20Class%20Regulations.pdf?la=en

First, my apologies to Darkman; it may seem like I've hijacked his thread but, I'd like to continue to post here and keep all the conversation as relevant.

I received my engine and I'm trying to figure out how to attach everything to the chassis.  I'd like to see the track adopt to the rules as set forth at the Briggs and Stratton site.  It seems pretty restrictive and to restrict it further may invite a perception of personal interest, just puttin' it out there.  Seems there's a lot of information that I'm seeing that says an LO 206 class makes for good karting when I google it and in other forums.  If we want to start this class we need some direction.  I'm new to the sport and I don't know what the committee is that operates the Kart Track but, there is this forum and it provides a voice.  Anyone else have something to say?

I'm looking to have some fun.  As a beginner I'll probably draw a vacuum if I contest in the clone class at first but, if the LO 206 class doesn't develop I'll race clone.  I think the LO 206 may invite other beginners to the track.

Thanks for reading.

Vozy, that is what this thread is about, getting the lo206 up and going. Post away.
The rule will have to be Briggs rules

As far as some of the other rules, I am a big guy, I would like to see the class start out at 375, open clutch, open tire.

Vozy, how much you weigh?

I will have one, it may just be me an you at first.

Thanks Darkman.

Open tire yeah, open clutch nay.  Maximum 6 spring and six shoe clutch per Briggs and Stratton outline.  I sure hope there's more than two of us.
I'm at 172 pounds.

Anybody know where to get alcohol free fuel locally?

The only reason I would like to see open clutch rule is I bought 4 clutches last year for me and three for my dad, and had to drive bearings back in after every race, a bully would never have done that and would have been cheaper for the season, heck even an old mdc would be better.

I haven't bought an LO206 engine yet but I will.  I just got my kart ordered from Danny Youngblood after Umax just rolled em out.  I'd rather run an open clutch because I have 2 Bulleys.  But I will conform to the majority if I have to.  I'm just glad to see other folks see things MY way as far as the engine goes.  The clone puts out the power but its a teching nightmare and you spend just as much or more as an Animal or Flathead in upkeep and initial cost.  This will make the FOURTH racing engine I will now currently own... so don't complain about the cost of racing/having fun.
