Do I get the oversize cylinder rings?

Hi guys, I need to replace my cylinder rings in my Briggs and Stratton V-Twin 16HP engine but I can't tell which part I'm suppose to use because, at least for me, the parts list seems a bit unclear. Model number: 305447-0175-E1. This is the part list. Look on page 22 and at ref no. 26. My engine is before code date 07122400.

Any help will be appreciated.

Did you just hone the cylinders, or ream them to the next size for the same pistons ?

No. The rings are just fried. I guess then I'm supposed to use the standard rings but the date code for that part number isn't the correct one for my model. Am I just going to hope that they didn't do any major changes in the smallish difference in date codes.

Don't expect to "match" one of the date codes . . . . they're giving you a range of dates between changes on the assembly line. You fit within one of the ranges of production dates.

More importantly, did you increase the diameter of your cylinders such that you now need the over size rings ?

If the rings were "fried" as you say, then how badly damaged were the cylinder walls ?
