Whats the general opinion on the Briggs head covers around here? Im talking about the sheet metal covers the go over the cooling fins on the head. All Ive ever seen them do is plug up, causing more harm than good. Dad has pulled his off so many times to blow out junk stuck in the fins, the threads in the block are stripped out.
Keep them or run without them? Pros/cons?
Engine is a 12.5 briggs.
