Re-gasketing B110...Any tips?

Recommended Posts

B110guy

My B110 engine has been bleeding oil badly all summer. Finally bought a Briggs gasket set and am getting ready to get to work on her. Any tips, tricks, things to look out for while I'm doing it? Is there a good source for torque specs for the hardware that needs it?

Don't forget about the gasket that sets the crankshaft end play.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think it's the one on the output shaft side, thicker for more play, thinner for less.

If you are using the lift the engine off the oil pan method(like I do) then you will need to be careful not to pinch or slide the flange as you reinstall the block. Anymore, I just use a bead of Gasket Maker with a thread fiber run through it. Aircraft style. Been working for years that way without issue.

Once upon a time, an old GM mechanic told my to use "Gorilla Snot" aka weatherstrip adhesive to hold a gasket in place.

The adhesive was NOT for sealing, just locating the gasket. There are many applications where sealer is not supposed to be used.

I had also learned that tying the gasket with kite string to the block or cover worked for holding. Get the mating surfaces close enough to start a bolt, then take your scissors or side cutters and cut the string and remove it with your needle nose pliers.

      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!😁
