If this happens to be one of the new plastic cams, Briggs did have problems with them, they had many service updates out on this problem. Most of the Briggs engines do have a 2 year warranty on them, so if this is within the 2 year mark yell warranty. You can also do whats called a disputed warranty, where as a customer can take a engine to a authorized Briggs & Stratton dealer and try for warranty, if the dealer says its not within the warranty period,or they dont feel it is warranty, contact Briggs & Stratton in Milwaukee Wisconsin. If a item on a Briggs engine fails not due to customer abuse, Brigss will pay for it, regardless of age. I once warrantied a crankshaft, which is very hard to do, only the factory can approve a crankshaft warranty, it was 16 years old..but upon inspection, they found they was At Fault, and they paid it, no problem. If it is paid as a disputed warranty though, the customer is responsible for the labor charges. Your engine has metal cam lobes. The tappet is hardened so the cam lobe should not wear prematurely. If you have abnormal wear to the cam, it is possible the tappet was not properly hardened. The other possibility is abrasives in the oil, but typically the whole engine would wear out.

What are the 3 valve trains used today?

1. Overhead Camshaft: The camshaft (or camshafts depending on the design employed) is located above the valves within the cylinder head, and operates either indirectly or directly on the valves.2. Cam-in-block: The camshaft is located within the engine block, and operates directly on the valves, or indirectly via pushrods and rocker arms. Because they often require pushrods they are most often called pushrod engines.3. Camless: This layout uses no camshafts at all. Technologies such as solenoids are used to individually actuate the valves.

None. Jet engines don't have cylinders. While Jet engines don't have cylinders they have combustors (which can also be called combustion chambers).

6.5 Briggs Stratton engine oil drain plug location?

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

What is the torque and CC rating of a Briggs and Stratton 7.0hp engine model number 128602-0304-E1 engine?

Hello, I have this exact engine on a Craftsman lawnmower I bought about 4 years ago from Sears. The mower is 917.377240. I looked up the engine part number on Briggs & Stratton website and wasn't entirely successful. I found documentation about the family but not specific info on this specific engine. I did find the decoding guide for B&S part numbers hence I believe this engine has a displacement of 12 cubic inches (the first two digits). 12 cubic inches is 197cc. A few years ago B&S shifted from specifying their engine power in "HP" to "torque rating". So all their current engine models are rated in torque power but our old one is 7.0HP. Both are at best only useful in measuring relative power within the same manufacturers line and at worst they are a marketing ploy. -Dan

Location of the Camshaft Position Sensor on a 2000 GM 4.3L V6 Vortec engine?

The Camshaft Position Sensor is located under the Rotor within the Distributor. Remove the Distributor Cap (two screws - one in front the other in back), located at the rear of the engine, then remove the Rotor (two screws). The Camshaft Position Sensor is located under the Rotor mounting housing. The engine will need to be turned (hand cranked using a wrench - large nut behind the cooling fan) to position the Rotor mounting housing in the proper location to remove the sensor.
