B&S Intek Crankshaft Interchange

I have a Craftsman LT2000 (917.28708) with a B&S Intek OHV engine with a grenaded connecting rod.

The crank journal is scored so I need to source a used one.

My crank:

P/N - 697127 superseded by 797579

Crank on eBay:

P/N - 793410

Are these interchangeable?

I see no difference in specs from: http://www.briggsandstratton.com/us/...ons_ms5568.pdf

There's a new one on there for your part number. It's higher priced, but I would be more inclined to go with the part number for your engine.

Briggs Stratton 797579 Crankshaft Replaces 697127 | eBay

There's no telling why the number is different on the cheaper one.

I have that one on my watch list. Going to look at a complete engine tomorrow, locally. It's never easy or cheap. I DID get the like new mower for free...

I know what you mean. That used crank may just have something different that wouldn't make any difference at all or it may be something like the timing keyway or oil relief.

If it was me doing it I would wind up spending a lot more than the new one costs to find out it didn't work.

Good luck with it.

Just a note about the old crank... most times on these, the scoring is acutally transferred aluminum on the crank journal. Usually you can remove the aluminum from the crank and the crank is often undamaged underneath. A lot of folks remove the aluminum with acid. I have carved it off and used fine sandpaper to clean it off. Just make sure it still meets minimum journal size requirements before using it if you try this.
