plastigage crank

Recommended Posts

If I plastigauge gap between crankshaft pin and connecting rod (with the correct torque of course), anyone know what that should be for a briggs 243431 engine? not trying to be repetitive in posts just forgot to ask in the previos one. all briggs manual says is rod should be able to move slightly. trying to figure out if my current rod and crank setup will work or if more parts are needed to be bought since engine is opened up. Thanks Tobin

If your usesing the green sealed power plastic gauge .001 to .0015 would be about as good as you can get however .002 to .003 would probably be acceptable but no more clearance then that.

      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!😁
