Tap it to 1/4" or 3/8" pipe thread and you shouldn't have any leaking problems. The 3/8" pipe thread is what nearly all briggs engines is tapped to and as darkviper said it's tapered threads. Be sure to use thread sealant on the threads as well. I recommend using the liquid type rather than thread tape. I've seen what thread tape will do to an engine and it's havoc when it happens.

If it's a metal dipstick, here is what I've done in the past. Remove the dipstick and clean with carb or brake cleaner to remove all of the oil residue. I use a black sharpie to color the bottom portion of the dipstick. Then let it air dry for at least an hour. Then install it. It makes it much easier seeing the oil on the dipstick since its dark in color. The marker seems to hold up pretty good but you will have to repeat now and then.

To me personally, a joke on race machines. Lights are for the street.

Sounds like a sheared flywheel key.

Not trying to start anything because I have no clue about particular engine but being on this forum for a while now, the last couple sentences sound rather arrogant and demanding. Sometimes you have to take the good with the bad, after all its a public forum but maybe someone will be able to help.

No way possible on these eongines. You may have a sheared crank gear key. What kind of flywheel? If ARC what did you set coil gap at? Stock cam or race cam? Solid cast cam or press on lobe cam?
Pm sent MowGuard

What he said ^^^^^

If you put it dot to dot then cam and crank are timed correctly. What kind of flywheel did you install?

The truth is, the truth sometimes hurts and some people can't handle it.

PS: Bert, I have 100 lepta for you.
9  General / Coffee Shop / Re: Aluminum Valve Covers on: April 11, 2014, 09:58:01 AM
The aluminum covers I've only seen were on a single ohv briggs labeled as a vanny which it wasn't.
10  General / Coffee Shop / Re: Aluminum Valve Covers on: April 11, 2014, 09:07:56 AM
Exactly what I was thinking Jeff. I think he confused prepared class for a stock governed engine class.
11  General / Coffee Shop / Re: Aluminum Valve Covers on: April 10, 2014, 11:18:01 AM
Jeff, the best I understand it is the billet or any aftermarket valve cover is not legal in the prepared classes. You can use a spacer for the valve cover and I haven't ever heard of a particular height rule on that either. Don't make much since to me as to why its not legal in these classes but that's what they choose. Besides bolting on a billet valve cover is worth an extra 5 horses and we all know that. Lol
12  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: 49 block numbers on: April 08, 2014, 10:20:05 PM
All the 49 blocks are the same. Regardless if there is more than one part number it should be same bore. All of the 44 parts will fit except the pistons. While you are at it just send me the 44 block. Lol
13  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: 49 block numbers on: April 08, 2014, 09:01:43 AM
But Jeff, I have a cast iron block with aluminum sleeves in it Tongue lol

Jeff is right, all the intek blocks are cast aluminum with cast iron sleeves.
14  Engine Help / Briggs OHV & Vanguard / Re: Help with Briggs 14.5 I/C OHV on: April 07, 2014, 05:57:50 PM
To add to what Toadworks said about interchange. A 28 flathead cam will not interchange with a 28 ohv or vice versa. It will physically fit yes but totally different cams.
15  General / Coffee Shop / Re: Chassis Discussion on: April 07, 2014, 03:37:53 PM
I've built an older deere mower, a MTD, and the rest were AYP frames. I much rather build the AYP frames. Solid and if built right will handle well.

You want one that does this. Chicks dig it.
Ed, where's the corn in this pic? I don't see any on the ground beneath that mower.
