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.

      Hello glad I got on this site. I hope to upload a couple of photos of my Simplicity Broadmoor 
      Model 707 Tractor. I have replaced all the belts on it and installed a new ignition switch.
      Have a mower deck which was in poor shape , repaced a couple of bushings and welded the
      deck where there was some holes. The tractor and mower deck came from a friend and the 
      mower deck metal was getting pretty thin. Some new metal was put in it and we also undercoated the underside of the deck. This was done by my friend Greg Toulman.
      I have not put the mower deck on the tractor yet, waiting for Greg to come home and give me a hand. Can you please tell me if there is a manual for the mower deck and where I could get one.
      I would also like to get some moon wheel discs as well.
      I will try and down load some photos of the tractor when my wife shows me how to. 
      I really love driving this tractor and also how well it is made compare today's tractors, especially the flexible rear end and the rollers.
      Tell the next time 
      Paul
