Our Techumseh 8HP has a Champion J8C
I have an early 90's 2cyl, 8hp, 2-stroke and the gap is .040.
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.
Capacity is 36 ounces. I highly recommend you use Synthetic oil in this air cooled engine. Change it once each year.
The 108 is an 8hp Briggs & stratton tractor made from about 1980 to 1986. It was replaced by the JD 130. Your JD dealer should be able to look up the microfilm listing for the tractor and give you an exact year of manufacture from the serial number.
one reason for this is the air inlet on the petrol cap is blocked or too small causing a vacuum in the petrol tank and starving the motor.
First change the oil. Then before trying to start squirt someoil (about to table spoons) into the spark plug hole, replace plug and try starting.
how fast can a 8hp go
318cc. is 8hp. 305cc.is probably between a 6 to an 8hp.
What year is the 8hp Mercury outboard with serial o6156590 ?
Between 5.5 and 6 horsepower *7.5-8hp The Vanguard series is rated at 6.5 HP. Most small engines these days are no longer rated by HP but, rather torque. Several models of Briggs 205cc engines are rated at either 8 or 9 ft/lbs of torque. I can also add that the "Intek" and "Polar Force" series of the 205cc class are rated at 9 ft/lbs torque and 7.5 HP.
