Photo Wrong Size Again

I bought this valve at Portland thinking mite fit my Briggs. No such luck. Its only 17-1/4" Tall with a 7/8" stem Dia. and a 4" seat dia. I guess i should stop picking on Briggs. (Sorry Guys) I guess i will just put it with my Big Piston and Big Rod and Gear and check valve, someday i will have enough parts to assemble a BIG Engine.

Looks like it would make an excellent plunger ram for a very high tech can smasher!

I'll bet that theres enough meat in a briggs f head engine to modify it...bigger valves = more HP right

Mac Leod (P.S. very nice find, let us know when you find the big engine block for your big engine parts collection)

Well I picked up a Valve just like that... Mainly for a conversation piece.... Then one day my 15 - 30 Oilpull just coasted to a stop with No Compression The head had simply broken off the exhaust valve stem. So a little time in the Lathe turning it down and I had a replacement valve. You never know when you will need spare parts
