to rebuild or not

Recommended Posts

I have 2 briggs motors (1 - 760241, 1 - 6609141) Both need to be rebuild, rings, gasket set, 1 needs a carb, both need exhaust valves. I can do the work BUT what will all the parts cost? I found a briggs last summer for $125.00 no smoke, runs good I put it in a landlord 2010. I have a Squire 9 in my shop that needs a motor before spring should I shop for a motor or parts. thanks Pete!

If you take care in disassembly, the only gasket you'll need is a pan gasket, about 5 bucks. Rings, depending on the mood you are in, could be had in the $20 range to the $60 range. A carb, find one in a junkyard, $30, and a needle, seat, likely a float, another $10 or so. Valves and initial grinding, reworking the seats, about $20. New motor? IF it is available, I have no idea, because I rebuild until it simply can't be rebuilt anymore, then go find a used one, and rebuild it, too. Any of you in shops that charge more, I apologize, as my costs are a guess, especially for the valve seats. I do my own, so I have no idea how much it costs.

Pete, those don't sound like the #'s for a cast iron horizontal. What kind of engines are these? I am rebuilding a 9hp Briggs Model 23D and I will have about $132 in parts into it. That is for a new undersized rod ($46.00), new .20 OS piston ($62.00), gasket set ($16.80) and a few misc small parts. The machining cost me $35.00 plus a trade of a cub brinly hitch. It sounds like your engines need less than this one did. New valves for CI models are around $20 last I checked.

Pete, the numbers you listed at first were just the code#'s which are unique to each engine for date identification purposes. Your model # is 243431 (10hp) My 23D is an earlier engine from before briggs went to the six digit model #s. Engines had a type and serial # for identification at that time. Don't worry your not missing any letters.

      Good morning peeps! I’m always searching for helpful information with my AC collection. Hope to find out new information and pass on my own experience in restoration. Here are some pics of my babies. I’m still looking for front rims for the 410 so yesterday I put the 310 wheels on took it for a drive. Working pretty good but still needs some carb work. Gotta get the 310 running next. Have a great day!😁
