Briggs & Stratton Intek rod bolt backed out

I have a 17hp B&S Intek in my Troy Bilt mower. Well the thing stopped running. And after the repair shop took the engine appart he said that the rod bolt had backed out and the cap came loose and needless to say there is nothing left of the engine the case has 3 holes in it. My question is do you think B&S will warrent this failure as the mower only has 44 hr's on it but the engine was built in 1999.

Hello derelict_one!

Sorry to say, no. I really don't think there's even a chance that they will warranty it. You could try, but don't get high expectations. The engine is 5 years old, regardless of hours. I think it has a 2 year warranty.
