Firing order for a 6.5 CI single cylinder engine is In this order .. Cyl # 1 first .. than Cyl # 1 and than Cyl #1 I will let you guess what comes next .... It only has one cylinder ... thetr is no order for firing ... multi cylinder engines have firing orders ... :) Thanks Dave. This has been puzzling me for years but your explaination makes it all clear.
Yes, most all of the Briggs single cylinder engines are exchangable. You just need to be concerned to make sure that you don't under power your mower. In your case that is not a problem.
The torque sequence for a single cylinder Briggs and Stratton engine horizontal shaft head is increments of 2's for hp and 1's for head bolts. That makes 11 head bolts for an 18 hp.
You do not state if it is a single or a twin (which it could be of either at that HP) so links to each below:
From the 1994 Briggs & Stratton Repair Manual - For Single Cylinder 4-Cycle Engines, it says the three styles are Flo-Jet carburetors, Pulsa-Jet carburetors and Vacu-Jet carburetors. Hope that helps.
Even though an Intek is not shown, it would be the YouTube video below.
It is a single cylinder engine with one spark plug so there is no firing order.
If that is a cast iron engine its 5 horse, look up Smiths small engines in Google that's were I get all my old parts.AnswerI used to have this really old snapper rider that i had to reguild the engine on and I found parts through the local lawn mower shops and through online lawn mower parts sites. Hope this helps you. Call the Briggs and Stratton tech support line on www.briggsandstratton.com. You might even end up talking to me! I'm looking through a parts & repair manual for the model 14 as I type this...
It depends on the load it is under, the size of the engine, who made the engine (Honda, Tecumseh, Briggs & Stratton, etc) and I'm sure many other factors. We have 3500 watt Honda generators at work that will run 12 hours on a 2.5 gallon tank under light load (a single power tool and/or battery charger).
There's a dot stamped on a single tooth of the cam gear...There's also a dot stamped on a single tooth of the crank gear... Line 'em up and you're good to go...Valves are timed...Good luck...
Most single cylinder failures on B&S twins are due to electrical failures. Check ignition diodes, coils, and key switch first.
More than likely, there will be a dot on the gear on the crankshaft, and on the timing gear, and you just need to make sure that they line up.
turn engine to top dead center on compression stroke then turn 1 quarter of an inch passed set at .005
The Briggs & Stratton engine company founded in 1908 owns and makes Simplicity snow blowers. These blowers include the four-cycle single-stage snow blower, the dual-stage snow blower, the large-frame dual-stage snow blower, and the Simplicity Signature Pro Commercial Duty dual-stage snow blower.

Most single cylinder Briggs engines hold 40 oz of oil. SAE-30 type oil
the first single engine was made in 1923
That depends entirely on the engine. All of my newer Briggs and Stratton engines recommend single weight engine oil in the sump, 30 weight for summer. Use detergent motor with at least an API designation of SG (SH, SJ) and you should be okay. Some lawnmowers use 2 cycle engines which require a special 2 cycle oil mixed with the gasoline. For a new lawnmower use the oil that the manufacturer recommends to maintain your warranty. If you want a more specific recommendation you will need to provide specific information about the engine and its age.
A Monty Stratton single signed baseball is worth between $150.-$300. Value is based on average prices of recently closed auctions. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the baseball. Signatures that have not been properly authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. Add for inscriptions. In a recent auction a Monty Stratton single signed baseball sold for $95.60. A pitcher for the Chicago White Sox, Monty Stratton was best known for the hunting accident he had in 1938 and had to have his right leg amputated. Stratton made a come back pitching in the minor leagues. A movie was made about him called The Stratton Story staring James Stewart as Monty Stratton.
Single Overhead Valve Engine
2 stroke engine...lawnmower engine I'll offer a second opinion: any utility engines used for driving equipment such as mowing, shredding, concrete mixing, or other uses that is smaller than what one would consider suitable for powering a car is a small engine. The four cylinder Wisconsin that powers a farmer's baler is a small engine, as is the 5 horsepower single cylinder Briggs & Stratton that came on your portable generator. Or the little two-stroker on your weed wacker. Most small engines are air-cooled, but the International Harvester small engine that powers the Ferris Wheel at the summer carnival is water-cooled, so small engines can be water cooled too. Wouldn't really matter if it was 2 stroke or 4 stroke. Each has advantages.
most likely a bad wire get a new one
The one that never starts its engine.
