Blown Briggs.....

Did a Repower for a Local. Decided to Rebuild the Blown Briggs 11.5 . Repaired Small Crack in Block w/JB Weld, Replaced Rod and Piston. This Piston was the Worst I've Ever Seen. Started First Pull after Rebuild.

Is that the same engine as the Briggs Powermore Jack? How much were the parts?

This was originally on a Craftsman 30" Machine. Replaced it with a "14.50" Briggs. Rod was like $45 Shipped, and Piston was Around $65. I opened the case, and saw the Broken Rod, and ordered one. Wasn't until I Finished tearing it apart, I found I needed the Piston as well. Shopped around for Best Prices I could Find.

I have repaired several blocks with JB and none have failed yet.
