Briggs and Stratton and Kohler engines are considered quality components. Neither is likely to be better. However, the Briggs and Stratton brand is more popular.

Onan no longer makes engines. But with the older ones it is hard to say. Both had very good engines. Some better than others. I would say Kohler had the better single cylinder engine after Onan stopped making the LK. Onan had better RV generator engines. On the larger units they were both the same in quality and support.

My research has shown it to be a Fram PH8170, but IMHO you'd be much better off going with a NAPA (Wix) filter, FIL 1056. i also just used a fram PH3614 in place of a 492932 since it was the filter i used on my kohler engine. the stp3614 would also work, if still available. these filters are about 1 inch longer, but if you have enough space they will work fine.

Fram says Competitor Part Number kh2505025 Not Found. Wix says KH2505025 CUB CADET Part Number: 51056 Principal Application: Various Lawn & Garden Equip. + Small Tractors w/Briggs & Stratton, Hatz, Kawasaki, Kohler, Lister Engines But if you want a Fram the Wix number crossed to PH8170 or PH8172 I Advise the use of the Wix filter it is a better quality filter.

Briggs and Stratton does not release specific compression values. Anything above 120 psi should be just fine, around 90-100 and you're most likely due for a rebuild. A better test is a leakdown test, with can help in determining where compression is being lost.

They are very similar engines. Someone that has had an issue with a B&S in the past will tell you to get the Kohler. Someone that has had issues with a Kohler in the past will tell you to get the B&S. On paper, it looks like the B&S offers a tad more torque, so that's an added bonus. I'd go with the B&S personally. When I think of Kohler, I think of toilets and shower heads. When I think of B&S, I think of small engines. However at least the 21Hp that is used on the husqvarna has a serious problem with the carb....has a solenoid on the bottom of the fuel bowl that gets hot and boils the fuel when you turn it off. Causes clogged jets.

Briggs and Stratton recommends Synthetic 5W-30 for the best protection at all temperatures. This weight gives better starting with less oil consumption. During winter months, when temperatures dip below 40 degrees, 5W-30 is recommended.

The most important thing is the engine. The rest is all the same. Look for anything with a Briggs and stratton engine and you will be fine. What a dumb answer. Deere by a landslide!

Both are about the same both have a Briggs & Stratton engine Troy -bilt is just a expensive name like John Deere or Husquvarna

I personally feel that it is a superior engine. The L-Head design is simple, time-tested, and burns everything well-- old gas, new gas, gas with ethanol, gas that has stabilizer in it, etc. Mine have always started easily and seem to be well thought out in terms of do-it-yourself maintenance. They are louder than Briggs and run a little bumpy, but they are powerful and long-lasting.Briggs seems to make better warm-weather engines. Their upper-line lawnmower and summer equipment engines are decent, but stay away from the cold weather lines.Top two for snowblowers in my opinion-- Honda and Tecumseh. Honda is probably stronger in the smaller sizes, and Tecumseh is a better value and offers better power on the larger sizes.Just one man's experience. Hope this helps.

Kohler will be the best choice for you, although the price is more expensive.

speed wise the Chevy engines are better but build for strength wise the olds wins.

Are diesel engines better than gas engines is sort of a yes and no question. Diesel engines generally get better fuel mileage and last longer overall. But, gas engines are easier to maintain on your own and gasoline is much more readily available than diesel fuel is on the whole.

I sold toilets for six years. We carried American Standard, Kohler and a couple of house brands--Pegasus and Glacier Bay. Kohler was our best brand. American Standard was good too, but the Kohler seemed to work the best.

TOTALLY. A Kohler sink is a Kohler sink. Lowes just may have a better price. It is definitely the same quality as long as it is the same sink you saw at another store.

It is better for engines, more pure and burns cleaner. It's better for care engines.

Not necessarily, they have different uses. Gasoline is better in small, high revving engines and diesel is much better for larger, slower engines in general.

absolutely they are better. if they are rebuilt right that is.

check that your main jet is not clogged. The reason it seems to run better while choked is simple. there is a bypass tube that siphons extra fuel when the choke plate is closed

Intek Pro, Vanguard, and I/C engines are for heavier duty Industrial/Commercial applications. The cylinder has a cast-iron sleeve insert. Standard Intek and Powerbuilt have an aluminum cylinder wall. These are for general and consumer use. Diamond refers to a Diamond Bore cylinder, a special preparation of the cylinder for better wear and oil consumption.

diesel. Diesel engines tend to have better efficiency especially at less than full load. Gasoline/Petrol and LPG engines tend to have better power weight ratios.

Diesel engines normally get better fuel economy than gasoline engines.

Depending how bad it is you can try taking the spark plug out and soak it in diesel fuel. If it froze up solid you may half to take it apart and drive it apart. If you half to do that you might be better of to buy anew or used motor might be cheaper in the long run. Hope this helps.
