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!

Spark plug gap for a rc12yc on 22 hp engine


Gap setting for a Champion RC12YC spark plug is .030

I am replacing the spark plug on a 5 hp Quantum engine that is on a Troy Bilt walk behind mower. I would like to know the spark plug gap setting on that motor.


I'm guessing you have a standard Champion J19LM plug, which has a gap of .030. They come pre-gapped from the mfg. and usually no need to adjust them. Most of the plugs on these engines have a .030 gap. There are very few exceptions that use a .020 gap (such as the RC12YC). Anyway, here's a link to a chart I like to use for reference: (there's a drop down menu at the top to change engines, but the standard Briggs engine is the one here).
