Can anyone figure this out? It's their now 10ft lb 223cc vertical shaft engine. Looking at the data sheet it doesn't say.

If it had a cast iron liner, that would be a selling point B&S would wanna advertise, So I doubt it has one if they are mum on it.

All engine models named Vanguard, I/C, Industrial Plus, Diamond Plus or Europa, have a cast iron sleeve in the cylinder bore. What is yours?

Probably not. This engine is for the new Timemaster mower.

Can also depend on size = Platinum series walk vs ride engines for example (ride has sleeve)

If you have a Telescoping Magnet you could put that into the spark plug hole and if it sticks you know it's Iron.

My luck the telescopic shaft would bend trying to pry the magnet off the I.D.

It's not only for that. That sucks though cause the aluminum bore engines only last like 500hrs.

It's about time they had a larger engine option on their 30 inch mower. The 190cc is too small and is a dog.

Sounds cool with that fancy name.

It doesn't say anything about a cast iron liner from what I read.

No need to fear linerless engines. Disassemble the shroud every season and clean the fins. If they are kept clean and oil changed they can last a long time. Like from 79 to 2012 mowing 3 acres on zero turn. The carburator butterfly was so worn that the engine would not idle. Still ran great. Retired due to no parts for the transmission and the blade deck was rusting out.

http://www.brandnewengines.com/14B937-0118.aspx Described as a Kool bore. 500 hrs, is probably what the Vega engines lasted. Nem mind, they were before your time. grin2

this is not to discount Ragtoplover's experience mowing a 3 acre field. The OP is a landscaper and machine will see many more hours daily.
