How much oil should you put into a Briggs and straton 6.0 hp engine?
it will hold about a half quart of oil
Depends on which model 11 h.p. engine you are referring to. Click the link and look yours up. Read the small print at the bottom conceding if it has an oil filter or not.
It is around a 5 hp. *this is incorrect: the ones they sell currently would be more in the 7.5-8hp range, seeing as an equally featured 190cc briggs and stratton engine is 6.75hp on a lawn mower the additional 15cc bump it up to around 8hp.
It should have a minimum of 70 psi.
The gap should be about .0125 in. (.3175 mm.) or the thickness of heavy paper.
You are trying to rebuild the carburetor on your S 24 Speedex tractor but canot find the model number for the Briggs and Straton engine so you can get a kit you were told it was stamped into the sheet?
Since there was no number on the shroud of mine, I just ordered a kit that I thought looked like the one. Really, if you get one that has the same gasket and float needle, you're pretty much set unless you're looking for something else. I should still have the paperwork for the one that I ordered. Give me a shout if you want it.
Roughly 16.5 HP
Too much engine oil could be the problem.
Briggs doesn't publish engine compression specs, but 120 is good. 100 is okay. 80 is lousy.
how much would it cost to bore out a 12 hp briggs and stratton riding mower motor
any where from 120 lbs to 180 lbs
64 oz per the manual.
48 oz oil capacity
Try 32 thousands, to start, depends on how much compression the engine has at this point.
Click the link and find your engine for the exact capacity.
Any thing above 130 lbs
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.
5 hp and 6 ft llbs tourqe
You are asking for too much detailed information to list here. Your best route would be to purchase a B & S Repair Manual or go to your local public library and check one out.
40 oz. A quart bottle and a 1/4 of a second one.
you are getting to much fuel past your needle and seat.
It can have anywhere from say 10 to 20 hp but is around 10 stock
That question will need much more detail before it can be answered. For an engine to run it needs fuel, air and spark. Without knowing which of these the engine has or does not have the question can't be answered.
Capacity is 36 ounces. I highly recommend you use Synthetic oil in this air cooled engine. Change it once each year.
I just got 110 - with new rings but still doesn't run right. ...
1.42 L (3 pints or 1 1/2 quarts)
You can adjust the valves on your 17 horsepower Briggs and Stratton engine by turning the adjustment screws. The adjustments screws will determine how much fuel goes into the piston chamber.
briggs doesn't offer compression ratings for their engines. I will usually pull it 3 to 5 times and look for 90 to 120. anything less is a problem and if it doesn't hold compression there is a problem
I will guess it is a V-twin and that would make it about 2 qts. depending of if it has an oil filter and which one.
20 oz. if fully drained, 16 oz. will usually be used in an oil change.
My daughters mini bike with a 3hp Briggs has 80psi compression and runs great. A motor I got "running" off eBay has 55psi compression, runs but has NO power. -Jason
Leak down test : Uses 70lbs pressure to test for leaks around valves and cylinders.
From the Briggs & Stratton literature you know torque at a specific RPM you can use math to calculate HP at that RPM. The Engine you are asking about has 11.5 lbs/ft of torque. Multiply 11.5 X 3060 RPM (measurement engine speed) then divide by 5250 (HP Factor). So the engine in question has 6.7 HP at 3060 RPM. This particular engine is normally run at 3600 RPM not 3060 as done in the testing… Read More
We need more info on your particular engine. It could be anything ranging from adding too much oil, worn piston rings, or the fact that when the engine is started, the carburetor is being choked (cutting off much of the air supply) causing the engine to obtain air from elsewhere in the engine such as the crankcase or through leaking gaskets, etc..
You should always have 20 fluid ounces of oil in a Briggs and Stratton 5.5 HP lawn mower. This equals out to roughly 1.6 quarts.
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.
NFL player Lance Briggs weighs 244 pounds.
Most Briggs engines that small take 1 pint of oil .
On a vertical shaft Briggs & Stratton 12.5 h.p. engine it takes 48 ounces. If it has an oil filter and you change it add 4 ounces for the filter. So, and oil/filter change would require 52 ounces.
If the engine starts: Let the engine warm up for about 5 minutes and S-L-O-W-L-Y close the needle valve (rotate clockwise) until the engine starts to stall for lack of fuel. Then open the needle valve (rotate counter clockwise) until the engine starts to stall because of too much fuel. Set to half-way between the two extremes. If the engine doesn't start: Close the needle valve by screwing it in clockwise just to a point… Read More
With proper maintenance, the camshaft should last the life of the engine.

the 440 engine had 375 horse.
Assuming it is a Briggs & Stratton GenTec Pro Intek V-Twin & ELS it will take 60 ounces + 4 more ounces if you also change the filter.
48 ounces without filter change. 52 ounces with filter change. Do not overfill. I recommend you use Synthetic oil in any air cooled engine.
Most have a 20 oz. nominal capacity, though usually it only requires 16 oz. during an oil change since not all will come out.
Most single cylinder Briggs engines hold 40 oz of oil. SAE-30 type oil
Briggs and stratton engine over idles runs so fast that oil spits out can only be shut off by pulling spark plug wire?
The governor is stuck, causing the engine to over-speed and not return to regular idle speed. You can check the travel of the governor by moving it back and forth with your finger - there is not much travel, but there should be some. Check for debris or accumulated gunk at the lever where it joins the engine and clean it well. Ensure that the engine oil is clean and at normal level. A stuck… Read More
If the engine is four-cycle, the valve seals may be worn, causing a small amount of oil to seep into the piston cylinder or combustion chamber. If it is two-cycle, the oil/fuel mix may have a little too much oil.
Get a purolator filter it is much cheaper and just as good. Any auto parts store can cross reference it for you.
18.0? Is that the version? In a seized engine one will find very little oil. The amount usually ranges from zero to several quarts/liters in most engines. Check with Manuel, the mechanic.
