Need Help with Briggs 16 HP

Recommended Posts

Horvik

Howdy;

Putting back together a Briggs Model 326431 out of my 3416 H.

The cylinder don't look too bad and measures 3.567, best I can see.

The BOOK says on this Cast Iron mill: Min: 3.5615 Max: 3.5625.

I got a good looking standard piston and rings, crankshaft too ready to go in.

Do I need to go oversize? I have a glaze breaker and stones, can that do it?

Lastly, trying to make it work, on a budget.

Thanks

Hey Ronald;

I carefully checked and the end gap is .035. Too high.

Then...I checked under the bench and dragged out a 326437 Cast Iron block. Cylinder MUCH better, but there is no hole for the breaker point rod, and no pipe thread in the lower block for oil dip stick. Can a magnetron be retrofitted to get spark to this here block? If so, I may just be able to make one good engine out of 2 ,

You can drill and tap boss for dipstick. After that and engine is installed you verify dipstick mark to a full sump and if it is off remark it. You can use existing magneto coil and buy a Nova or Mega- Fire electronic module to replace points.
