Briggs motor Question

Recommended Posts

Been thinking on that since I looked at your 101. bet it was run a long time with no pipe in it. Maybe bore and tape it next size up, or have a real good welder/cast expert, weld a pipe nipple in the hole. Really big healy coil??

Go to a machine shop and see if you can borrow a " Bottom tap " that size. A bottom tap don't have the slope like a normal tap does. Go slow and if you hit any tough spots, stop and use a normal tap for a little ways. Never seen one that couldn't be fixed. A bead or 2 of bronze could be T.I.G welded so as not to get the heat too high if need be. Good luck
