   I am refurbishing my briggs 243431 series engine, upon ordering the bushings I noticed the plunger bushing that came in is a bit different.  I don't think it will make any difference but figured I would put it out here and see what you guys think.  I ordered the correct part #230775.  thoughts

My first thought would be: This ain't the first time it has been replaced.  

My second would be: PO used whatever he had on hand to make it work.

Looks to be a modifaction by the previous owner as they should be just like the new one in your pic using both old # 230775 and new number 692880

 

Got to love when people decide to get creative and hack something together when the part is only $ 6.00 new :wallbanging:

   fi the old bushing is not an oem one than someone was really good at machining, it is exactly correct to the new one just has the threads on the end. even has the step in it for the pressed fit.  I would have to say it is an oem bushing.  I am just going to use the new one, it should be fine, there was nothing screwed on it.

If anything it could be from a similar series engine and the guy ordered the wrong part number.

Isn't there a couple diff systems depending on date?  Seems some had a screw in bushing went into block and held, and another system just had a little rubbber hood  that slipped over the bushing there, than had tiny washer ring to hold it's edges and then was held in by small tin part that bolted under the points when put on. THAT is what my bigger 16hp has anyway. Just thought might have been an "improvement"?

Here's the deal with the threaded plunger bushing. The threaded bushing is for many different model Briggs engines. I just wanted to add that the bushing that is not threaded is just an alternate design according to a Briggs manual.
