Here are two things.

First the spark plug. Take the one that was in it to the where they sell small engine spark plugs in your area. The people working there will be able to easily match for the right one. As far as the gap goes, you can look at www.briggsandstratton.com and find the manual for you mower, the gap setting should be in there.

Now for the not starting. If the mower is in good repair otherwise, I've found that most of the time if the mower has been sitting since last year, the gas has gone bad. You can usually tell by taking the cap off and smelling the gas in the tank. If it doesn't smell normal, you will need to drain the bad gas out of the tank -and the bowl of the carburetor. Most carb bowls can be drained by unscrewing the bolt in on the very bottom of the carb. Be careful, because a lot more gas then you think will drain out. Once that is done replace the bowl bolt and fill the mower with gas and try starting the mower.

Also, be sure to clean up all the gas that you spill on yourself and anything else before trying to start the mower!

I need a gas tank for a Troy Bilt chipper shredder model #47329


TroyBilt no longer wants anything to do with their older chipper shredders, so no luck there. However, it is a Briggs and Stratton engine and gas tank and I just called them at 800 743 4115 and ordered a replacement gas tank. They will need the engine numbers (on the opposite side of the gas tank below the muffler) to find the gas tank part number. Mike Ryan

Where is the drain plug to drain and change oil on a standard push mower


It's under the mower on most Briggs & Stratton engines and others. It's about 2 or 3 inches from the shaft. It may be a bit hard to see because of being caked with grass. Use a putty knife to scrape it off.

Is my Craftsman Mulcher lawnmower a 4 stroke or 2 stroke engine??


It should be a 4 stroke, the only thing I can find on it is the mulcher blades, set up called a side discharge mower. It has a 5.5 HP ,22 inch, briggs and stratton engine. Hope this helps.

Won't start at all


your air filter could be clogged. Also, you can remove the plug and spray a small amount of starting fluid in and replace plug and see if it starts.

Replacement part for Craftsman 650 Briggs & Stratton 22" multi cut mower Model #917.376741


You first need to locate the model number on the mower, not the Briggs engine. Then go to searspartsdirect.com and enter your model number on the right side of the web page. This will take you to a list of parts for your mower. Your model number should be located on the deck of the mower (you didn't say if it was a rider or a push). Rider model numbers are located on the rear of the body behind, on or under the seat. Push model numbers are found on the back of the deck between where the handles attach to the frame.
