what is the maximum RPM and horsepower rating of the engine

Asked by: Elad
Thanks for your question. We tend to stay away from horsepower simply because organizations rule set differ, the method for horsepower testing in the field varies, and your final choice of exhaust systems will impact horsepower. Between all of these variables you can see a several horsepower difference. With that said to give you some general numbers, the World Formula will be approximately around 11.25 hp.

What Is the valve lash on a world formula engine.

Asked by: saumsz
We recommend running ZERO lash set when the engine is COLD, on both the intake and exhaust. The reason for this is, when the engine gets up to operating temperature, our valve lash typically grows .0015-.002".

Would this possibly be a good engine to use in a backyard go-cart or some sort of chassis to pull a human body?

I have a formula 2 race engine I purchased with a kart,  I am wondering what fuel is needed to run in this engine,  it cuts out some times in some corners.  I have changed needle settings and float hight trying different things.  Any ideas?

Asked by: Derikdwyer
All of our engines are designed to run standard 87 octane gasoline. If the engine is cutting out in the corners, assuming a sprint verses enduro corner which could be related to fuel sloshing at the tank (been there, done that), I would recommend the following: With a stock carburetor continue to lean fuel out by raising the float height in .015" increments. When you enter the tight/bumpy corner, a bounce could be causing a momentary increase of fuel through your main jet. By lowering the fuel slightly in the carb bowl this is eliminated. Open your spark plug gap to .040". If you are experience a momentary rich condition opening your spark plug gap will take advantage of our digital ignition systems KV firing power to jump the gap increasing the burn. This will equal out any slight rich conditions. These are the two magic adjustments that will take your bog away. I would recommend watching our carburetor float height setting video which will walk you through how to set the height properly. I would also download our carburetor tuning guide which is available under the documents tab in the World Formula section.

How do you set timing on a world formula motor? Factory timing is 29 BTDC, I know on other briggs motors you just line up the notches in the crank gear and timing gear, is this the same for a world formula motor?

Asked by: BTSCLAN
All of our engines use digital ignition systems which 'fix' the timing at a nominal 29 degrees past 1,850 rpm. You are correct, our cams and the crankshaft timing gear each have 'dots' that align to insure proper engine timing.
