Post your Pics! / Re: 44cube briggs timing advise please
« on: June 05, 2019, 10:31:49 AM »
Thanks Paul I raced last weekend and got top of the points table,but like any mower racer I want to slowly improve my machine.i have just ordered chromemoly push rods,heavy valve springs and bullet retainers and a custom 90 degree airbox to fit pod filter.sorry if this is a silly question but 6 degrees advance or retard ? My guess is advance but pays to ask and do you run high octain fuel ? I run 91 pump gas at the moment but am buying some copper head gaskets aswell .I am upto my 5th mower build but havnt done much engine wise.any help is greatly appreciated 👍

6deg advance,as far as springs ,retainers and push rods go,your stock springs are good for 5-5500rpm,i wouldn't want to run a stock motor much higher than that anyways and the copper head gaskets wont gain you anything ,but maybe leaks!!,I would mill heads .040 and put new stock gaskets on if it were me.

40ci and 42ci block is the same,i think you may need a pressure lube 42 horizontal crank..

Look up rods for a 42477.
You cant use vanguard rods their shorter by a lot and crank journal and wrist pin is a lot smaller

What is the number on the top of the piston. I have noticed that number does not match the number on the box. Can the number on top of the piston be crossed to a part number? I have several piston without the box. Thanks

Big Al,i believe numbers stamped in top of piston maybe a lot # ,no way to cross to pt#

Thanks for your answers guys, I did find in another post that number isn't a part number. Will 499998 be the 0.020 over rings for my piston? Is file fitting oversize rings to stock pistons the way to go?

499998 is.020 for your piston,i am not a fan of filing oversize rings to a standard bore,each ring is made for a specific bore,so filling oversize rings to fit standard bore,just adds more ring drag and makes rings out of round in the bore

What rpm's are you running?
I have seen many new engines that only lasted a few hours@ stock 3650 rpm and others with hundreds of hours with no problems.maybe the ones that don't last are out of spec to begin with.

Ring set used after 01 is pt#696403 fits 696397 piston
Before 01 is or #499996
By your date code your motor is a 99

Also the # on top of the piston is not a part# fyi
