probobly locked up since it to be low on oil. So lack of lubrication causes the steel to obtain hotter and lock up. For this reason the black scorched oil. After a cool under it to be probobly enough to to totally free it up. For this reason the fresh oil was sufficient to lube it increase properly and get it functioning properly.ive seen it take place a few times. You got pretty lucky. Generally it will certainly mess up something in the bottom end.

Briggs con rods and engine block are aluminum and also when there is no oil and that aluminum gets warm it gets like a vise grip lock. As soon as it cools it shrinks and brakes free, yet some that the aluminum is melted ~ above the crank and also thats why the takes a few turns to polish the off. IF you prefer that mower lug oil along and also keep it full at all times and also start budgeting because that a brand-new engine, together I"m an extremely sure friend diminised it"s lifespan.

I suspect that in the not too remote future you begin to hear the stick knock. That will be followed shortly by the same rod coming the end of the side of the block.
This...the political parties of the Briggs blocks cannot save the energy of the explosion! sometimes they just swell and crack...most of the moment the stick breaks and also makes a nice inspection port.Posted via mobile Device
