\n. \n Answer \n. \nChecking at your local public library for a manual on small engines repair would probably be the easiest way to find B&S and other small engine "blow-up" diagrams and repair guides. Suggestion: If you get the Model and Code numbers from your engine, you might find a manual… specific to your engine. (MORE)
It is normal for a little gas to be present in the oil. This is why it is important to change the oil at least once a season. If there is a lot of gas in it then I would say that the carburetor is malfunction or isn't properly adjusted. Too much gas flow and it leak into the oil. Answer #2: On m…y riding mower, the problem was originally caused by water in the fuel. This can originate from your local gas station, or in my case a gas cap with a "fuel gauge" built into it, which eventually allowed water to leak into the tank. The water settles to the bottom of the carburetor float bowl, eventually rusting the float needle, which no longer shuts the fuel off completely. This allows fuel to drain into the crankcase and contaminate the oil. My solution: Drain and replace oil. Clean float needle until it successfully shuts fuel flow off (or replace needle if necessary). If you have one of the aforementioned "gas gauge" type fuel caps, toss it and replace with a standard vented cap. And MOST IMPORTANTLY - if your mower does not have a manual fuel shutoff valve, install one ASAP. They are available at any mower shop for a couple bucks. Simple inline installation, just cut gas line in a convenient location and plug the valve in place. Now you can shut the fuel supply off when not in use. Of course, I figured all this out AFTER I replaced the connecting rod and patched the hole in the block! (MORE)
Answer . It really depends on what all is done to it a stock motor with nothing at all done to it will probably do 30 with the govenor set at about 3500-4000 ive got one with no govenor aftermarket exaust and air filter and a shaved head that will go 50-55.
Answer . the valves or rings are allowing compression blow by to enter the crankcase which causes excess pressure that is brought to the carburetor by the breather tube. your engine is getting tired or you have too much oil in the crankcase.
It is sometimes simpler to drain the oil from the fill tube and this is Toro's recommended method, for example. . On a vertical shaft B&S engine, the drain plug is a pipe plug with either a 3/8 square recessed male x 18 NPTF (National Pipe Thread) or an exposed square plug. It is usually at the 4 …o'clock position within 2" of the output shaft with the spark plug location being called 12 o'clock. -- JP (MORE)
It isn't to tough to do but it's a lot to type out. I would suggest getting a manual for about $8.00 and just go through it.
You can put almost anything in it, but the B&S engine on my lawnmower contains 30-weight Castrol HD.. Don't use standard multi-weights like 5w30 or 10w30. Synthetics are ok, but standard automotive oil does not function properly at high temp ranges that air cooled engines produce. It'll void your w…arranty, too! (MORE)
The ignition coil is really easy to check. To check the ignitioncoil spin the engine over at around 250 RPM and watch for a sparkin the tester window.
Briggs and Stratton oil must be used for Briggs and Strattonengines. They have both synthetic and standard oil. They have oilsformulated for 4-cycle and 2- cycle engines.
The most common reason for a carburetor not to receive fuel is aplugged fuel line. The fuel filter can also be plugged.
Briggs & Stratton recommends high quality detergent straight 30weight but this can result in hard starting and may damage theengine at colder (below 40 F) temps. Multi-viscosity standardautomotive oils (5w-30, 10w-30, etc.) are acceptable but willresult in very high oil consumption at ambient temper…atures over 40F, and may void your warranty. High quality syntheticmulti-viscosity oils are best for all temperatures. (MORE)
tune ups can me many different things. Etc. is it running ok? If so change the oil and spark plug and u are ok. If u have a certain problem e-mail me and I'll help! Don't forget to replace or clean the air filter. If it is the sponge-type, it can be washed in warm soapy water, then rinsed with cl…ean water ... then squeeze-dry and let dry completely before re-installing it. (MORE)
try tightning the fuel intage (screw under air intake) pour a lil gas into air intake or even better starter fluid. make sure your spark plug is gaped correctly (.030), make sure your clutch is on.
Ok i had this motor on my go kart. i had a header on it and a fire sloted head also. i was driving it hard for awhile and the rod broke in 5 pieces and the piston warped and messed up the crankshaft . So i put new rings in it and a new rod and cranksaft. The motor has good fire and the valves are no…t sticking i tried pouring a little gas in the carb. the motor turns over good it ran fine before i blew the rod. I cant get the motor to start i have no idea why.the gas in the carb is oily to i dont know if its a valve guide or what. Could i have installed the rings wrong i have no idea,.... Any help would be appreciated (MORE)
Assuming this is a vertical shaft unit look at the base of the engine. You'll see a small plug with either a thumb handle or 2 pips to unscrew the plug. After you remove the plug add good quality oil to the top of the cast slot in the bore of the plug opening. To drain look under the unit for a squa…re pipe plug. Drain oil warm and replace plug after all dripping stops, refill with fresh oil. (MORE)
There is no such thing as a Briggs and Stratton Go Kart motor. Yes, you may be using it in a kart, but it wasn't designed for it. So we need Model number to give you a proper answer, though I will give you a clue you can follow. In all the B and S engines I ever worked on, there was a small dipstick… that screwed into the oil pan from the top. Most of the ones I remember took about 3 pints of oil and this could be accurately measured by this dipstick. (MORE)
My 6.75hp Briggs calls for 30wt, so I would make a reasonable assumption that the 6.5hp calls for the same.
You loosen the nut own the governor arm turn the arm clockwise and then turn the governor shaft clock wise. Tighten nut That should do it.
The most common cause of surging is a dirty air filter. EPA approved carbs tend to run lean causing the surge condition described. Main jet needs to be replaced with next size larger.
Originally from when Briggs & Stratton started business in 1919, the engine's were built in Milwaukee Wisconsin to 1985 and well into the 1990's. Recently great production is very little from were Briggs & Stratton was originally started. These day's there is great activity of Briggs & Stratton part…s from China/Japan and Briggs & Stratton engine blocks being casted in Mexico. Truley a great devistation to a once GREAT engine. Which is why alot of people like myself will no longer recommend a Briggs & Stratton engine. Today your best bet is Kohler (still U.S. produced), Kawasaki or Honda. (MORE)
bad gas, dirty carb needs new sparkplug. youtube has repair vids on how to do what. user (davidsfarm) has great tips
It may be one of two things. Either it isn't getting enough gas, or to much
Engine Size . The Briggs & Stratton Raptor engine features a bore between 2.56125 and 2.5625 inches and a stroke of 2.438 inches. This corresponds to a total engine displacement of 12.48 cubic inches per engine cycle. More modern Briggs & Stratton 5 horsepower engines feature the same 12.48 cubic… inches of engine displacement, but achieve that volume of displacement using a wider bore and a shorter stroke. The currently produced Animal, 206 and World Formula engines feature a bore between 2.6875 and 2.6885 inches and a stroke of 2.2 inches.. Compression Ratio . The original Raptor series of engines featured a compression ratio -- the ratio of the length of the stroke to the length of the combustion chamber -- of 6.5 to 1. Despite their shorter strokes, modern Briggs & Stratton engines also feature shorter combustion chambers and thus have higher compression ratios. The World Formula has a compression ratio of 9.5 to 1, the 206 has a compression ratio of 9 to 1, and the Animal has a compression ratio of 8.5 to 1.. Ignition Timing . The factory-specified optimal ignition timing for the Raptor engine is 22 degrees before top of dead center (BTDC). The Animal, 206 and World Formula engines are factory-designed for an ignition timing of 29 degrees BTDC.. Aftermarket Modifications . Many users modify their Briggs & Stratton racing engines to improve on, or the stretch the limits of, engine performance. If you purchase a used Briggs & Stratton motor, ask the seller about any modifications that have been performed and how they may affect engine performance..

The intake valve is not closed deep enough into the valve seat due to being too long and crankcase pressure is allowing some oil from the engine to be sucked up the valve guide into the combustion area and the 4 cycle process allows some of the oil to be pushed into the intake cycle and thus gets in…to the carburetor intake area and then into the exhaust system as the engine completes the cycle. Can also be caused by the mower turning over or when the engine oil level too high. (MORE)
on the carb there is a plate that moves when you throttle up and returns to a stop screw when throttled down. This stop screw is the idle adjustment, turn it in until you reach your desired idle rpm.
The user's guide to my 130 series B&S engine (garden cultivator) says: 10W-40 can be used if 10W-30 is not available at your location. So, if you fit to the 10W-30 oil temperature interval then 10W-40 can be used. On the other hand lawnmower is usually used at spring-summer temperatures so why not …to use SAE30 oil? (MORE)
Most 18 hp engines and below did not come with a oil filter assembly. There are a few execptions out there, but those execptions are newer model engines only. Currently (2010) no engines with less than 18hp will come equiped with a oil filter. You have to ask the manufactures why they are moving in …this direction. (MORE)
The book says for opposed engines without oil filter, it's approximately 1 & 1/2 quarts. If it does have an oil filter, then it'sï»¿ approximately 1 & 3/4 quarts.
On engine used only in warm weather use straight 30 weight. On engines used in cooler temperatures use 10W30 any major brand.
A Briggs & Stratton 6 HP Engine takes a little less than 1 quart of oil. When you get to about 3/4 poured in, Stop and check your oil. It may take a hair more but not a full quart.
Far easier to drain old oil through filler tube, remember to always keep cylinder head [spark plug end] pointing up when tipping mower.
Most have a 20 oz. nominal capacity, though usually it only requires 16 oz. during an oil change since not all will come out.
The Briggs and Stratton push mower tune-up kit includes a pack of Stabil, 18 ounce bottle of oil, spark plug and air filter, so the correct answer would be 18 ounces. Always check the oil level level after refilling. . According to Briggs & Stratton website it takes 22 ounces. If the engine is eq…uipped with an oil filter add 4 ounces. (MORE)
During the summer a 30 weight oil is all that is recommended. During winter operation a 10W-30 oil is reccomended.
Depending on the model, it could differ, but the most common would be the champion CJ8 spark plug, or similar, double check at your parts store before you buy.
There is a large allen head pipe threaded set screw (oil Plug) located in a hole under the engine . Remove to drain oil. Becarefull when replacing plug not to over tighten it will crack the case if you turn in to tight.
i just take the cap off and tip them to the side into a drain pan, most of them have a plug on the bottom, but easier through the fill tube
80-90WT hypoid gear oil. I use synthetic because it lasts longer, seems to lower the drag on the gears, and shifts easier from F-N-R
The user's guide to my 130 series B&S engine (garden cultivator) says: 10W-40 can be used if 10W-30 is not available at your location. So, if you fit to the 10W-30 oil temperature interval then 10W-40 probably can be used. I have been using SAE30 up to now. Now I am planning to switch to 10W-40 as I… want to use the machine in the winter as well. (MORE)
?? What filter? I gather it is a walk-behind mower. Just change the oil every 25 hours to keep it alive!
I recommend you use SAE 10W30 100% synthetic in any air cooled small engine. Any major brand is fine.
Most likely the needle valve & seat in the carburetor bowl is defective allowing fuel to flow when the engine if off. This excess fuel will run into the cylinder and down to the crankcase. Replace the needle valve & seat.
Check your timing if you have sheared a key on the fly wheel it might : 1.just work if the plug is out because it might just have enough friction to turn. 2.Your valve seals are letting oil threw and it is dead heading on compression stroke. The list goes on. Hope this helps.
SAE 30W for summer & SAE 10W30 for winter use. I highly recommend you use 100% Synthetic oil in any air cooled engine. And major brand will do just fine.
Capacity is 36 ounces. I highly recommend you use Synthetic oil in this air cooled engine. Change it once each year.
I use straight 30 weight in all my briggs engines. It works well in most all temp ranges
It may or may not have an oil filter as they were equipped both ways. If it does it requires 56 ounces of oil for an oil/filter change. If not, it requires 48 ounces for an oil change. If it has a filter it is located on the very bottom of the engine near one of the mounting bolts that holds the eng…ine down. Look closely and you will see it. (MORE)
