Title: Intek twin cylinder blocks
Post by: Hotroddy on August 18, 2019, 01:23:45 AM
Is the cylinder block for the Intek 44 twin stronger than the 40`s

Recently we have seen 3 intek 40`s that have cracked the cylinder blocks . Not all on the same mowers . Anybody know why they crack and how to stop this problem ?

If the frame twists right, it can pop any of them.

Thanks for your reply.
Will look at increasing torsion strength of frame , and engine base plate .
Originally I thought engine block needed strengthening for extra hp
