chinese made motors

Recommended Posts

some one got a new motor thru Costa Rica because the Chinese still make what we don't. they posted a pic of the box it came in.

can that club member contact me please?

I have a brother living in C R so I would like to send him the numbers off the box to see if he can purchase motors for transshipment. (Costa Rica is a member of the north American free trade agreement. stuff from there does not have import taxes and tariffs. so the chinks send stuff to CR instead of L. A. to beat the taxes.)

I doubt there is any money to be made doing this but I have 2 tractors that use 23D/243xxx motors and some parts for them are hard to get.

yep, that's it.

i'll get my magnifying glass so I can read the numbers on the box and send them to little brother.

he's slower than cold molasses so nothing will happen soon. (he says he's living on 'manyana time' manyana does not mean tomorrow- it means 'not today')

I just held a big magnifying glass in front of the screen to read the numbers-326431 I think- and sent that and 243431 to my brother.

he lives out in the sticks but works in San Jose so he has the opportunity to find a dealer. if I threaten to come visit for a while while I look, he will look harder so as to avoid that. lol.

I was actually informed by fellow club member, ZippoVarga, that the engines are still made here but they aren't for sale here due to EPA restrictions. It makes sense because the box says "for export only"

The 'ol 16HP Briggs Cast Iron Engine still draw interest. As to mine purchased in August of 2003:

Info from the tin: 326431 2521-07 01103048Model: 326431Type: 2521-07Date code: 01103048 = '01, Oct30, plant 48 (China I presume)It was purchased from Small Engine Warehouse and I BELIEVE (not a fact) it came from Central America. And dav, this engine type came with an oil pan that has the "fill/drain" combo on one end of the pan. It barely fit in a 7100 series frame. It has no stator, hence no charging system. A Model 326437 would have the gear tooth starter and I'm sure many of those models would have charging systems and different block/oil pan configurations that would be dependent on the Type.

      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!😁

      It's in pretty sad shape, but yes I have a yellow plastic cap that I'm fairly certain is what you need. PM me your details and I'll get it out to you.
