Hey ya'll: I forgot to get the model # this morning, I'll post it up tomorrow. I think I let my B&S 15.5 OHV single with pressure lube run out of oil. The rod broke at the fat end and disintegrated, also chewing up the rod journal on the crank. I stuck another old engine on the mower, so I'm up and running, but I'd like to try and rebuild this motor as a wintertime project. I have the bottom end opened up, with the crank and rod removed. I did not unseat the rings. Other than having pieces of rod everywhere, the rest of the engine is fine. My question is this, should I look at buying a new crankshaft ($$$$ I'm sure), or can I buy a rod with an undersized journal so I could have the existing crank turned? Or is this even worth the effort? By the way, this is the first time I opened up a B&S with the spin on filter. There is no "pressure lubrication" that I can tell. The oil pump picks up from the oil pan, and oil is returned to the sump. Nothing even close to the way cars, motorcycles, etc handle oil. I'm not pointing a finger, this is my fault and the best lube system in the world is useless without oil, but I wonder how many folks realize that the pressure lube is nothing more than an oil cleaning system. I wonder if honda, kawi, and kohler are the same.
