    Limited Animal Recipe

    Looking to build a limited animal in the near future.

    Any suggestions as to cam, springs, carb, etc?

    Anyone have a set of WKA limited animal rules they wish to share?

    Thanks in advance, Matt

    Call any reputable engine shop, easy engine to build no real tricks. Do a good port job and use a long rod. The Dyno Mod 1 cam and green stripe valve springs with a .30 thick shim works well. Call EC bert for good carb.

    Steve, what flywheel is best and which piston and rod do you prefer? I'm thinking timing around 36*btdc

    You can get the rod and piston from Dyno cams or ARC. I don't like a lot of timing, we use 32 to 33 degree ign timing on this engine.

    WKA no longer has a set of rules for a Limited Animal. The only rules WKA has for any engine of this similar type is called the Animal Modified and these rules are outdated with regards to keeping up with Briggs engine component changes over the years. WKA has been out of touch with what'ss going on in the world of Animal racing for a long time now and don't see this changing anytime soon.The controlling people at WKA love their 2 cycle high end racing! Its the wild wild west with regards to Animal racing except for the Briggs and Stratton LO206 club race engine that has really only roots in sprint racing not oval. The good old days of BP and Modified Animal racing is long gone.......taken over by the Clone!

    Steve, did the WKA limited rules require stock size valves or were big valves allowed? What is the max bore size?

    W5R, Yes it required stock Animal Intake and Exhaust valves and the cylinder could be over bored to +030" or 2.725" bore size.

    FYI - The last year WKA had the Limitied Animal class was in 2006. They did continue using the Modified Animal and still even in the 2017 WKA tech manual they have this class listed with a set of rules and specifications.

    if you build one be sure and get a valve spring plate brace... when the animal limiteds first hit the market they were dropping and bending valves all over the place until folks figured out you had to brace the plate to keep it from flexing... Dyno probably has a brace...nothing too fancy just a simply cross type brace will work fine.. I made my own until they hit the market.

    as too a carb, the 368 works well for a limited blueprinted with basically a old Fhead Super stock drill pattern

    I can't quite picture how this brace is mounted and where it goes. Are there any installed pictures of it available?
