Briggs and Stratton 5hp piston rings

hi Folks,

i am restoring an old toro 58 professional with a 5hp Briggs as the power unit. The piston rings need replacing and I can’t seem to find any at a reasonable price. Does anyone know if there is an alternative about that will do the job.

thanks

Try Garden Hire Spares. Note

Try Garden Hire Spares. Note that the 13 series 5hp came with either an aluminium Koolbore cylinder or the I/C version with a steel liner and you need the appropriate rings.

Probably a Koolbore unless

Probably a Koolbore unless someone has replaced the engine, but if you think the piston rings are expensive, I would give up now. If you have to buy any genuine Toro parts, they are expensive, for instance, last time I heard the traction belt was somewhere in the region of £55 plus vat.
