Recommended Posts

I have a new piston, with rings on my shelf, 294676. It is missing one piston retainer. Pins were sold seperatley back then. PM me with E-mail address and I'll send you a picture or two.

There are aftermarket rebuild kits for some of the more popular models of engines but not for the old CI briggs. You can buy a gasket set from briggs which includes all the gaskets used on that engine, it should be around $15. Definitely if you are replacing a piston, you are tearing it down enough to need to replace your gaskets. Are you having anything done to the cylinder? Do you have a parts manual for your engine? If not I think BLT may have one for that engine, I got one from him for my model 23D.

Chris, I was going to wait to see how bad the cylinder is before I deciede what to do...Is this the proper way to do it? This is my first attempt at this kind of thing. I emailed Briggs and Stratton asking for any info on this motor they may have,,,havent heard from them yet. Its only been a couple of days. thnx

Boney, Briggs will likely tell you they have no PDF manuals for that engine. They do have a service manual for the early type engines, it may be helpful. They sell it on their website or you can probably get it from any briggs dealer. Before you buy any parts, dissassemble the engine and inspect the cylinder bore and the crankpin. Measure these before you buy any parts. Sometimes they don't need to be bored and you could possibly get by with putting in a new wrist pin and rings.

      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!😁
