B29
« on: 01 Jul 2012 at 08:13 »
Was the 1929 B29 manufactured with detachable heads and solid head / barrel for that same year?
and which of the two types would be more reliable and better in performance?????

The B 29 would have only been fitted with detachable head barrels. The sports model EWs also had detachable head barrels but some differed to the B 29 in the combustion chamber. Some of these heads I have had can be identified externally by a raised semicircle around both screw in valve caps.

Also of interest the timing gears in the B 29 are wider and the timing gear spindles are supported by a steel plate instead of the timing cover.

I also had a lot of success fitting Victa VC 160 pistons to these motors. An Aussie mower to overseas readers.

Hi Alan,
Thanks for that, I'm still a little confused as the motor I have ID's as a B29 and had the solid heads barrels.
As the other two ID as B29's have detacthable heads, I don't think that they were changed or messed with
prier to me getting them, but who know's what may have happend since 1929!!!!!!
