Hey guys, decided to strip the twin down for parts and curiosity! Wow low oil did a number to it! Poor thing, this was engine from the Craftsman we got from my customer. He ran it out of oil. We swapped in a 18HP Single Briggs and gave it to my neighbor.

Nice, I'm sure it gave "very little warning" too when that happened.

He called right after it happened to ask what is wrong! Said a large white cloud out of muffler and BANG! I kinda knew what happened, it cranked over for a bit until that rod piece got caught! Poor thing! Good engine killed! :(

At least I got a manifold/carb and heads out of it. Also kept the flywheel and starter.
