Torque specs for oil pan on horizontal Briggs

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know off hand what the torque specs are for the old cast iron Briggs oil pan bolts? I'm putting an oil pan on my 16hp Briggs tonight. I'd appreciate any help. Thank you.

John I checked my Briggs "Service Manual for Out of Production Engines,1919-1981" and found no mention of torque specs for oil pans for any engines. Plenty of torque specs for rods and bearings though!

Thank you for checking, the more I thought about it the more it occured to me it would be pretty tough to even fit a torque wrench in those areas. I checked the forums first before I asked, but I didn't check my common sense first.:I Thanks again for checking.

You're welcome John. The manual I refered to is like a Bible for the old Briggs engines. If you are doing much repair on the oldies it's worth the $20-$25 they cost. Otherwise holler anytime you need some info.
