8H.P Briggs rebuild

Recommended Posts

Guest
Does anyone have a guesstiment of a rebuild from a dealer vs. buying a short block? This little baby just started smoking just a little and while I'm repainting the rest of the tractor, and have the engine out I would like to either rebuild it or buy a short block.

Kriss - you will need to check your local shop for an estimate. Labor rates vary and so does the work required. If you can't wait until winter I would suggest ordering a short block and have it on hand for when either you or the dealer can do it within a few days so that you will not be without a mower for very long.
