B&S 460777, Type 2276 E1, Code 9803265A. The engine seized after running low on oil. Open the back plate and took off old rod caps. Rods and caps showed signed of severe wear. Condition of rod on cylinder two at journal made motor almost impossible to turn. Removed cylinders and using caliber determined both journals to be ok, ie. not rejected according to specs. Specs are from a B&S repair manual I bought at Sears for L-Head twins. I assume that the reject spec published by B&S for the journal means that if my measurement is larger than their reject, then my journal is OK. Purchased new connecting rods 498314 std size and measured rods at journal to be 1.625, when torqued. Old ones measured .003-.004-.006 larger. The wear on the olds rods was limited and did not circumnavigate the inside (bonus points for using big word) of the rod, thus I am able to obtain those measurements. Did B&S send out defective rods. The journals barely measure Purchased a new in-lb torque. After torquing to B&S spec of 190 in-lbs, the motor is hard to turn. According to B&S manual, rods should have some up/down movement on the journal after torque, mine don't when torqued. If I loosen the bolts at the rods, the engine spins freely. The pistons, rings, walls all look very, very good. No scoring, no nada, pistons move up/down freely, so I know they no be da problem. I polished journals with emery cloth and wiped clean before connecting rods and caps. even put oil on the caps before tightening. There was no visible damage to the journals, i.e, scaring or gouging. The connecting rods on the other hand had severe scarring. I treated the jounals with muriatic acid to rid of any alum transfer. Any info/input would be helpful. If da motor requires da new crank, send flowers.
