Rebuild or Renew?

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,
The Briggs & Stratton 3.5hp engine on my old hayter is now sadly on its way out.It uses a fair bit of oil and its now starting to rattle at the bottom end if used for too long. The carb could probably do with replacing too.
I don't if its worth stripping down and rebuilding the engine with new parts or getting a direct replacement?
I would welcome any thoughts on which would be the best solution.

I would try and find a good replacement I think it would work out a lot cheaper

Thanks Nigel for your reply I am tending to agree as the price of parts will probably make it uneconomical to rebuild!!
