Knowing how.my.projects tend to "snowball" I mist ask this question....
I've read many posts re: upping the power output of the C60. Changing carb, shaving head, port matching manifolds, etc...... While I agree that "if u need more power u probably need more tractor"; I also think that having a little more umph wouldn't hurt.....
My question is this::: Does the torque increase exponentially with the HP???? Chasing a few HP for a negligible boost in the torque is a no-go for me.....
Just curious .....I've never seen the torque boost questioned or answered (unless I missed it somehow!!).
Thx!!
John

The torque only changes due to mass and a change in RPM. Since the mass is likely to stay the same (negligible differences in piston weight), the only change to torque is an increase in RPM.

Just an update..... I've decided to leave head alone for now (there is a method to the madness!!) and continue my trek rearward on the machine.
Got all new clutch, t/out brg, flywheel (broken), clutch brake assy (broken). Something felt weird Ion input shaft of Trans. So popped top of Trans and found it to b dry, as well as a broken 2-3;shift fork. Got foreman at work to weld fork for me. Gears don't look gr8, but jo.missing teeth, excess side/end play.
Going to try and g]et her built back up this weekend. For furthering ⁸uuuuuu assessment and b also to get it up into the shop,

Down a bit in my link is a chart on the C60's HP to torque.

There are several dynameter tests on this site that confirm the information posted by Jim Becker in my link.
I have an excuse. CRS.
