Briggs 23D Rebuild Questions

Recommended Posts


While it's freezing cold everywhere and I'm still finalizing some interior shop details, I figured maybe I could start to assemble some parts for my 23D. Broke a connecting rod a couple years ago and mothballed it.

Looking to start the parts gather and reviewed my manuals. Looks like there are a few different variations of the connecting rod, primarily .020" undersized pin.

I've found a couple NoS rods recently but am wondering if I need to disassemble everything first and are there measurements I need to be concerned with?

Might want to magnetron the ignition while it's apart. It converts nicely with a bracket and 10hp flywheel. :)

id="quote">Good suggestion! I need to do some searching and reading on the process. I know a number of members have done this and it would be nice to get rid of the old car coil bolted to the top of the engine. Do you suggest any specific posts or just do a search?Cheers!

      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!😁
