Briggs opposed twin pressure lube
« on: April 13, 2018, 05:53:30 PM »
Hi I just bought a 18 hp opposed twin horizontal engine with pressure lube-oil filter.  Two mounting tabs were broken off the base.  Does anyone know the difference between the the base or sump between a pressure and splash lube engine?  If they interchange great, but if not guess I will have to get it welded.

You'll have to have it welded,as the oil pump is in sump and there is no oil pump in splash lube

Thanks - I figured they were different.  I havent taken it apart yet, but I assume yes it has a screen/pickup in the sump.   I guess I will plan on getting it welded.  I assume that the material is cast aluminum?
