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?

The head on my Briggs single cylinder L head from 1978 is aluminum.

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.
