SOURCE: Briggs and Stratton 17HP Intek Governer Overspeeds

Can you Regulate the Engine Speed Using the Governor Arm? If Yes, then Reset the Governor. **To Reset the Governor; Loosen the Governor Arm Bolt and Turn the Governor Shaft Clockwise Until it Stops. Using the Governor Arm Hold the Carburetor to Full Throttle. Now with the Shaft Full Clockwise and the Governor Arm and Carburetor Held at Full Throttle, Tighten the Governor Arm Bolt. If the Engine Still Runs Full Throttle, then Reverse the Rotation of the Governor Shaft, but Still Hold the Carburetor at Full Throttle with the Governor Arm. If it Still Runs at Full Throttle, then Check the Internal Governor.** If you Can Not Regulate the Engine Speed Using the Governor Control Arm, then Check the Carburetor Throttle Valve. If the Throttle Control Valve (sometimes called a Flap or Plate) Mounting Screws Came Out of the Control Valve, then you will have No Control Over the Engine Speed. Send me the Model and Type or Spec Numbers Off the Engine, Please. With these I can Locate the Proper Manual and Better Assist you. **The Throttle Cable Attaches to the Throttle Control Bracket. The Cable Moves a Slide that Moves a Pivot. The Pivot has the Spring Attached to it and to the Governor Arm. The Solid Link Connects to the Governor Arm and goes to the Throttle Shaft on the Carburetor. When the Throttle Cable is Moved it Moves the Pivot and the Pivot Pulls the Spring. The Spring Pulls the Governor Arm and the Governor Arm Moves the Throttle Shaft. Usually the Spring is in the Lower Hole in the Governor Arm and the Solid Link is in the Top Hole of the Governor Arm.** If you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance. Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens

If this is an older model engine , it may have points & condenser . You can change them or get an electronic ignition module to update your engine. On the points & condenser , the condenser gets very hot ! Thats why it will restart after a cooldown period ! Get the new parts , it comes with instructions . Good Luck !

The oil is passing the rings on the pistons and is therefore being burnt in the ignition process. In the combustion cylinder.
The valves may also have been bent in the process, one would need to check these to get the engine to run well again. Any bent valves will cause a loss of power.

Take care!

SOURCE: riding mower with 26hp briggs and stratton motor runs about 20 to 30 minutes thens cuts out

It sounds electrical in nature check the solenoid for continuity, check your key switch it may be bad also, check the spark plug wires and the part they hook into. Look for melted wires and replace as needed.

Shuts off after running a while


Given the fact that you offer absolutely NO information about what "IT" is, I am going to guess at a solution for you.
I am assuming that you have a one cylinder Briggs and Stratton engine mounted in a riding lawn mower that sounds like you are dealing with a defective ignition armature, commonly know as the coil.
You can verify this by obtaining an in-line spark tester, the kind with a neon bulb that will show a visible spark while the engine is running,
Insert your tester in the spark plug wire and connect it to the spark plug, start the engine and run it until it "shuts off". Immediately try to restart it while watching the spark tester for a visible sign of spark. If you see no light flash or a very weak looking light in the tester, replace the ignition armature/coil.
