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.

What are the parts attached to the cylinder block?

The cylinder head, which in overhead cam engines houses the camshaft that operates the inlet and exhaust valves and in side-valve engines houses the rocker arms that do the same thing- both via compression of tappets that link to the valve. Below the cylinder block is the crankshaft housing, or 'crankcase' in American terminology, which houses the crankshaft that co-ordinates and drives the pistons operating within the block.
