Post Will Rods for 40 hp Vanguard Work in 35 Mudbuddy HD
>Are factory rods for a late model 40 h.p. horizontal Vanguard the same dimensions as the ones that came in an older 2005 Mudbuddy 35 HD?
>If the same, will they install and work without any machining for proper side clearance or other tolerances?
>Will the newer 40 h.p. rods withstand higher RPM than the older 35 h.p.?
>Approximately what RPM are they good for?
>What is the B&S part number # for the 40 h.p. rod?
>What is the approx. $ cost comparison of the B&S 40 h.p. rod with a moderately priced performance forged alloy rod?
>Any recommendations for other brands of performance rods and potential suppliers?

the 40 rods will only fit the 40 pistons. you can swap 40 rods and pistons into a 35. personaly i would just grab a new set of rods for the 35/37. they are better than the 2005 rods by alot. the newer stock rods hang out in the 60 hp range daily

Do you have a Briggs & Stratton part number for the 35 - 37 h.p. rods handy?

i dont have it in front of me but if you go to jacks small engines or parts tree and enter you model number. a replacement rod for yours will be the newer style. or use this number 61E477-0004-J1 . thats a number for a 37 wich has the same bottom end as yours
