Head Material

Recommended Posts

What is the type of metal used on the head of B&S L head engines? I have sanded, chipped, scraped, scrubbed and everything in between to try and clean the carbon off of the head and I have decided to try that CLR stuff. I need to know what kind of metal the head is made of because CLR can't be used on alunimum. Thanks. Also, are any parts of the engine galvanized?

Every one that I have worked on is aluminum. By the way, it is not necessary that the inside of the head be absolutely perfectly clean. Just get the major buildup off.

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
