Default Re: Here I go again,Briggs build

The pic shows how I run my belt clutch. Because of the closeness of the two pulleys, I had to tension the belt pulling down, rather then pushing up. It grabs fine, under hard acceleration it will slip. But works great. On my Briggs blue bike, I swapped out the Js freewheel for a 18t gear for engine breaking, and it nice cruising around, but like you say, downhill breaking is for me not wanted. I didn't think it would work as good as it does. Rather than change it back, ill try cut the engine off on a long downhill.
