What say you?

I dont think this would work either and dont see that it would actually make a difference in the issue of the crankshaft counter balances running directly in a large amount of oil in the crankcase, these engines only take about 14oz of oil to fill and it is recommended that they are not over filled with oil, this is for a reason.

look at the pic and you will notice a big difference in the way these rods are designed VS the Briggs type in the pic you listed.
