Sandy you can either drain the old oil from the spark plug socket which would be easier or the oil fill point. Remove the spark plug and tilt mower foward getting someone to hold a pot under it. When it's finished draining only put the same amount of oil back in (fresh) When you have done leave the mower somewhere level for a few hours and then start it. It may smoke for a few minutes.

There should be a drain plug on the underside of the mower deck. Raise that side of deck, remove the plug and drain the oil. Replace the plug and add new oil. Hope this helped.

SOURCE: Does the Briggs & Stratton 650 series have an

Hi and welcome to FiXya. I am Kelly.
The 650 series engines are a splash oil lubricating system 6.5 Hp engine. There is not an oil filter on this engine.

The manufacturer specs on this engine state to do the first oil change after 5 - 8 hours of use and then at 50 hour intervals there after.

You should use SAE 30W oil for your engine and if you use "synthetic" oil, it does NOT change the interval period.

Here is the actual engine operators manual:

Oil change procedure is on page 10 of the manual.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

SOURCE: What is the magneto gap for a 6HP Briggs &

Briggs lists it as .006 - .010 on this 6 HP L-head engine. The .010 width can easily be attained by using a standard sized business card as a feeler gauge (and it doesn't stick to the magnets in the flywheel). I double up the card, loosen the coil and let the magnets in the flywheel draw the pickup legs in until they press on the card, tighten up the retaining screws (threadlocker is optional) and your air gap is set.

Why is my 450 series 148cc briggs and stratton lawn mower engine running fine and then when it gets hot it runs with no throttle


Keep an eye on the oil level, it could be sucking oil past the rings and burning it causing the engine to run a bit faster. it may also have a small vacuum leak at the carb or manifold tube, make sure the carb and manifold gaskets are not leaking air. All combustion air must pass through the carburetor exclusively.

The primary jet is probably clogged. If you remove the fuel bowl and float assembly you should be able to slide a fine wire through the orifice to clean it. Rinse everything with carb cleaner before reassembly.

I have just aquired a Briggs and Stratton 450 series self propelled mower but need an owners manual.


The Briggs and Stratton 450 series is the engine (4.5 Hp). Is there a model number on the mower deck anywhere? I can probably find you a manual but need that model number. Unless you just want an engine manual.
Murray makes a 20 inch MX450 that has the Briggs and Stratton 450 engine on it but there are numerous makes and models (self propelled) that use this engine.

MX450 parts manual is here:
http://bsintek.basco.com/BriggsDocumentDisplay/default.aspx?filename=lminvFXBnfBhU7y

If you can come up with a good model number I will search avidly for a manual.

What kind of oil does the 22 hp briggs stratton take


from briggs site:
For optimum performance, you should change the oil in your small engine after the first five hours of use and then annually, or every 50 hours of use (whichever comes first).
  • Use Briggs & Stratton SAE 30W Oil above 40°F (4°C) for all of our engines.
  • Check oil level regularly.
  • Air-cooled engines burn about an ounce of oil per cylinder, per hour.
  • Fill to mark on dipstick. DO NOT OVERFILL.
