Briggs 31P777-0237-G5 #2 teardown

A few days ago I removed the flywheel but the sump cover would not come off.

It came off today with a lot of wedging and tapping.

The cylinder bore measures the same top to bottom which means there has been little wear use.  Need to be darn sure this oiling passages are all open on this machine.   

The #40 torx socket I had was of poor quality.  I screwed up one of the rod cap screws with it.  Bought two to try at carquest and got the 2nd one off.  I ended up grinding the bad one off with a dremel.

Ordered 4 new rod bolts.   If the engine on the DYT4000 is junker this engine may go there instead of on go-putz because it is a direct replacement.
