NOTICE

Supply-chain disruptions have hampered our ability to restock items reliably. Many sought after parts are backordered without ETA info -- backorders with unreliable restock ETAs are VERY frustrating for us as well. We are doing what we can to adapt and recover from the changes to our industry, but currently many shipments are delayed and our response time to emails are slow (we are severely short-staffed). Even if we can't reply to your email promptly, please trust that we ARE working on getting delayed items back into stock for you, and we will contact you when we have any updated news. We appreciate your continued support and understanding.


When you place an online order request, you can opt to have in-stock items processed for shipment in advance of any backordered items. For out of stock items, you are NOT CHARGED, you are automatically added to the reservation waitlist, and we post stock status / backorder info to your Order Status/History Detail View in your online Customer Account. You can email to cancel un-shipped/un-paid items at any time as long as they are not special order or made/machined-to-order.

Please only continue if you are prepared to be PATIENT. Requested items could be delayed by supplier-level backorder, and we usually aren't given reliable ETA information. We work diligently to source and fulfill your request for items as best we can.

Lower Cylinder Air Deflector Plate, Upright Engines, 10mm Head Studs, 40hp-1600cc Upright Engines, EACH, 311-119-317A
Lower Cylinder Air Deflector Plate, Upright Engines, 10mm Head Studs, 40hp-1600cc Upright Engines, Each, 311-119-317A


 
Lower Cylinder Air Deflector Plate, Upright Engines, 10mm Head Studs, 40hp-1600cc Upright Engines, Each, 311-119-317A is the most critical pieces of engine tin on the whole engine! These deflect air to the lower parts of the cylinders, to properly cool them. If these are omitted from the engine, the cooling air simply rushes down between the cylinders, and the bottoms of the cylinders run much hotter than the tops. This creates such uneven temperatures that the cylinders can distort, and the rings then no longer seal the cylinder because it is no longer round, it's Egg Shaped!

These must be installed BEFORE the heads and push rod tubes are installed, unless you are using Spring Loaded Push Rod Tubes. We prefer these square shaped tins over the "Super Cool Tins" that many people use. These also MUST be used in conjunction with "Sled Tins" to keep air rushing beneath the engine from "backing up" the cooling air's escape, out and back! You need TWO of these do to one engine. These snap onto the lower inner head studs, and "block" the air that flows between the cylinders, fore/aft to cool the lower side of the cylinder. These are often missing, and this results in a significant temperature difference from cylinder upper and lower, and lessens cylinder lifespan because they distort and warp (non round).
