SOURCE: Briggs and Stratton Vanguard 23Hp starter issues

The starter may need shims between the engine and starter to permit the relative gears to release. Compare the two starters, if you still have the old one, for shaft length and bendix construction. Hope this helps!

It is starving for fuel. Replace the fuel filter first thing. Clean or replace the air filter. Also purchase a can of Seafoam or Techron fuel treatment. Follow the directions on the can and put some in a full tank of fuel. After running this full tank if you still have the problem then you may need the carburetor adjusted or cleaned out. I would advise you to seek professional help in accomplishing this.

How does choke work on 20 horse briggs the throttle only has turtlespeed and rabbit no place marked choke


Many have auto chokes, which are set to close and open essentially with spring pressure. You can verify this by looking into the intake, ahead of the throttle plates. Other designs use a priming bulb to accomplish the same function.

Engine appears to run normaly until PTO is egaged,then it backfires and quits. Engine is an 18 HP Vanguard twin, model 350777.


Check you float in the carb I had one a few years back and it was partualy plugged cleaned it out and everthing worked fine. Also is the PTO binding up or bearings going bad putting an excessive load on the motor.
