The old B&S 10HP cast iron block engine is Model 243400 series. The standard ring set in now P/N 792362. The standard connecting rod is now P/N 592158 and comes with the dipper.

I plow with a Simpicity 3410. Is there anything can be done to prevent a connecting rod from letting loose? Mine runs well with no smoke and uses no oil. Will they all eventually fail no matter the care given?

I'm looking for an excuse to rebuild it. I've never done much under the tractor hood other than vacuum off chaff. I just bought three used books on "How To Do Expert Service On Briggs Cast Iron Singles". I've never had a rod "let loose", at least not since my high school years. ;)

Stens doesn't make internal parts for the cast-iron Briggs. Best bet is eBay. You need a parts manual for that engine. There will be rods and rings listed on eBay under the old part numbers. The older parts are likely better quality. I have heard some of the newer rods are not as good as the older ones. Also are you sure that you don't need to bore the cylinder and use an oversized piston? Is the crankpin within spec?

Great info and timing.

One of my 101s broke the connecting rod in a storm a few weeks back.

My other 101 was out of service because it was not running well, burning oil and I had to steal her BGB when the one in my 2010 failed.

I have already rebuilt and reinstalled the BGB now I need to rebuild both engines.

Agree with Mike. If you do not pull the rings out of the bore for this operation on the other engine, you may not need rings. If you use it, the worst that can happen is that it uses oil. If that is the case, find a set of rings for it. Does he know why he took it off?

I would take whatever is necessary off your engine and use on his. I ran a 16 in a similar situation over 5 years before taking it down. was going to bore, but it is already work .008 past .030 oversize, will need to sleeve back to original

      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.
