Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden
I have a 21 hp lawn tractor that when the blades engage I lose considerable power and the engine dies shortly thereafter. I have replaced spark plugs and properly set the gap, changed oil, checked coils, and added fuel stabilizer. I am preparing to regap the valves. Am I on the right track? Now the engine dies as soon as I engage blades.
The engine is not developing power and the presence of a load causes it to slow down and quit all together. Is there some sort of timing advance on that motor? In a car if the timing is not right that is exactly what happens when you put the car into gear and try to use it.
I would not mess with the valves till I check out the timing.

does it turn over slow or fast if it turns slowly thats the problem so it could be battery or starter they have to have a good amount of rpms to burn fuel right when starting if not it floods out the engine with gas hope this helps thanks wade
