Product Description ?

This is a genuine OEM supplied replacement part that is specially designed for Briggs and Stratton engines that are commonly installed on Toro lawn and garden equipment. It is the part that the piston is attached to. The piston is a central component of a two-cycle engine. It provides both the compression within the engine and it transfers the energy from combustion to the crankshaft which creates rotation. Please note one durable metal connecting rod is included, please note over-sized rods are sold separately.
