Any time a small engine is hard to pull you need to check your valve clearances. If they check out look for a bent push rod. Also check your spark plug anytime it backfires. Even if it appears to be good I would replace it since they are cheap and can go bad and not show any signs of a problem.

Finding top dead center: Remove your spark, remove your valve cover, pull over your engine slowly, watch for the intake valve to open, once it starts closing put a long screwdriver down the hole on top of the piston. As you pull your recoil rope let the screwdiver follow the piston up until you hit the highest point. At TDC you will notice that it will not move for about a 1/4" pull of the recoil rope. It may take a few attempts. And alway reverify your valve setting after making adjustments by finding TDC again and checking the clearances.

Check the valve clearances they should be .005-.007on your intake and .007-.009 on your exhaust. The intake is always closes to the carb and exhaust to the muffler. The slightest bend in a push rod will do this and is hard to detect. The best way to check them is to remove both rods and on a smooth clean surface roll them together and watch the gap between them. If they are good the gap should remain constant. If other, replace both rods since they are cheap and with one bent it's hard to tell if the other is slightly bent.

Note: Before doing any of this; shut off your fuel, remove your spark plug and pull over the engine a few times. Any excess fuel in the head should come flying out. It's a good idea to spray a little carb cleaner in the cylinder via the spark plug hole to help dry up any oil if present when doing this.

Have you checked for a bad head gasket?

Check the intake valve springs or the intake valve shafts to be sure they aren't stuck open. Another cause could be excessive carbon build up on the intake valve causing them to not seal.

If you've gone this far, you could try a compression leak down test. If you still have the push rods out, you can use or get an adapter that will allow you to pressurize the cylinder(s) with air by removing the spark plug. Apply 70-80 psi air directly to the cylinder (the cylinder may go to BDC (bottom dead center) but if you don't have any push rods, the valves can't open.

Listen carefully - if you hear air leaking out of the carb, it's a bad intake valve. If you hear air from the exhaust, it's an exhaust valve. If you hear air from the crankcase breather, it's piston rings.

one idea is to check the amount of oil you are putting in....remember...you mustn't flip the gen. to fill it....keep it level and keep filling until the oil level is visable and about to drip out...that's the right amount....if you overfill it it will cause the problem you pointed.

How to find exhaust stroke compression stroke


This is one way to do it.
Remove spark plug in number one cylinder.
Remove distributor cap so you can see the rotor.
Hold a clean steel rod in the # 1 cylinder.
Rotate engine, with a wrench on the front engine shaft nut.
When the # 1 piston is at the highest point, while the rotor is pointing at #1 ignition wire, the piston is at the compression stroke.
The next high point , then, is the exhaust stroke.

Hope this is what you needed.

How to adjust the valve on my white riding mower 14.5 Briggs and Stratton


The following is assuming it is a OHV version and that is a 280000 series.

NOTE: Check valve clearance while the engine
is cold.

1. Turn crankshaft counterclockwise until
piston is at top dead center on the
compression stroke. This prevents the
compression release from holding the
valves open.
2. Insert a narrow screwdriver or rod into the
spark plug hole as a gauge, then slowly
turn crankshaft counterclockwise until the
piston has moved down the bore by 1/4"
(6mm).
3. Using a feeler gauge, adjust rocker nut to obtain the clearance.
Intake .003" - .005" Exhaust .005" - .007"
4. Hold rocker nut and tighten the rocker ball
setscrew to the torque valve. 45 lb-in. (5 Nm)
5. Check clearance again and re-adjust, if necessary.
6. Repeat for other valve.

1o h.p. generator, starts fine, runs good for short periods then kind of sputters, a single sputter, but every second or so and will run like that for hours, thought running would help, didn't.


I realize you have a 10 Hp Briggs engine. The symtom your describing is often caused by the valve lash gap being to narrow on the EXHAUST valve. You may have a 0.001 gap cold but when it warms up that gap is less and you get just a bit of compression blow by but not enough to impede power output. Over time it will usually get harder and harder to start. The remedy is to reset the valve tappet gap
Depending on what engine you have the GN series the gap for intake and exhaust is 0.002 with the flywheel directly at TDC.
Standard OHV Briggs are adjusted with the flywheel 1/4 inch past TDC to a gap of .004 - .006.
The Jam nuts are torqued 65 - 85 inch lbs

Non OHV engines L-head are adjusted .004 intake and .006 Exhaust at TDC by changing valve stem length with a grinder or replacing the valve if necessary.

If you still have the problem after doing the above... replace the spark Plug... (again even if yours is new) After spark plug replacement you still have the problem respond here and I will help you until this is resolved.

This could also be a case of the fuel mixture just a tad lean..

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

It sounds like your valves are out of adjustment. Your starter will bog down if it is out of adjustment and stop at the compression release.
So just take your valve covers off and set your valve lash to
.006 intake
.008 exhaust

Try pulling out the choke a little, if it stops backfiring the mixture is too lean, check the intake
pipes at the cyl head and also the plastic runners to the carb for leaks.
