Briggs New Rod
« on: June 30, 2018, 01:00:22 PM »
Hello,

Flathead 125k02 0303 e1 031117 fb

499424 is the correct rod, but discontinued. Need to get the whole piston assembly.
Will 797306 work, or does it need the newer piston/pin?

Any chance there is an aftermarket rod for this motor?

Thanks
Steve

I don't see an aftermarket rod for your motor(on ARC site) ,also your rod journal is an odd size,im also an ARC dealer ,so im quite familiar with parts they make..
I think your best bet is to locate a briggs 499424 rod on ebay,also the 797306 piston should use the same wrist pin you currently have,its a newer version of the piston you have they changed by date cods as well.

Ok. Thank you very much. These enignes are a dime a dozen, so now it will be if I can get a rod for cheap, or just get another $80 lawnmower.

Thanks again
