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

SOURCE: 31p777 18.5 hp briggs & stratton valve cover leak

Both can cause problems. It is recommend that you do not go on a grade more the 10% for your safety and the safety for others around. But if the valve cover is leaking this can lead to major problems if not repaired on a timely matter

SOURCE: is there an oil filter on a Briggs/Stratton riding lawn mower. Model#42A700

Yes there is a spin on oil filter. Depending on the date code when the motor was built there are two possibilities. The easiest way is to measure the length of the filter, If the filter is 2 1/4" long the Part Number is 492932.
If the filter is 3 1/4" long, the Part Number is 491056.

SOURCE: Huskee 25 hp lawn tractor with briggs & stratton motor wont start

Most all manufacturers have the Users Manuel available on line you will need the Make and Model to pick the correct one. Have you replaced the battery. It can show the correct voltage but have no cranking amps. I believe if the solenoid is trying to engage the Dead Man switches are closed. With the starter disconnected from all power sources do the teeth on the starter turn or are they locked up? If they refuse to move do you have an Auto Zone around or another parts store or electrical engine repair store that can test the starter. Make sure the mowing deck is not engaged while you are trying to start the engine. I hope these rudimentary suggestions help.

21 hp briggs stratton Engine Problem Diagnosis for burning oil


There is not much anyone can help you with. The only thing i can suggest,is a total motor overhaul. The rings on the pistons is allowing oil to leak through and burn along with the gas. You could add a small amount of TSP,this is an oil additive,that helps to seal the rings,for a time. Sooner that later,you will have to get the motor repaired. There is other additives out there,that will do the same thing,just be sure to go by the directions on the can. Remember,this is only a bandaid to your problem,this might get you through the mowing season. Sincerely,Brad Locke DTD. 12/03/15

Murray riding mower 12.5 hp briggs & stratton spitting oil & gas out of carb & muffler when trying to start


Drain oil... it is full of gasoline due to a bad float pin and rubber gromet in your carb. When your float pin and gromet fail, gas just keeps flowing into your carburetor, eventually flooding your motor with gas and oil mix.

I have a 1977 model 137-495/ 8 hp electric start MTD riding mower with a 38'' cut, my problem is I want to change my oil and I have no idea how much oil I need with the filter.


I take it that the motor is a briggs and stratton?
Briggs makes their own sae 30 weight oil which you can pick up at lowes for 5 bucks or so and it is packaged in a 48oz. container
this is what you need for an oil change and filter,
being this old and 8 horsepower have you located a oil filter?
anyway start with 48oz do you have a screw in dip stick to check your oil or a cap you take off near the base of the motor? if you have a cap you take off then you add oil here until it covers the top of the threads and your done.
if you have a dip stick add 1qt 32oz..then check the level with the dipsticks safe range and adj as needed.
if you cannot find briggs oil then use a reputable brand sae 30 weight


hope this helps you some
