Rebuild kits

Recommended Posts

Ronald Hribar

going to go inside two Briggs Vanguards 18hp

to see why they quit running

I may rebuild them if feasible

My question Is there a rebuild kit for them?

I'm thinking pistons and rings and gaskets

and possibly rods

Ron,

Pull the valve covers and check for dislocated or broken push rods.

The Vanguards have a habit, after some hard use, to have problems there. The aluminum cylinders expand more than the push rods, and cause too much clearance.

      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!😁
