Question about Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton Intek V - Twin Vertical Ohv Engine with Electric Start 22 Hp, 1" X 3 5/32" Shaft, ModelNo. 44K777 - 0027 - E1
Engine was hard to start, wasn't releasing compression. Adjusted valves to .004-.006 at TDC. Ran great for about 4 or 5 hours and started popping/backfiring. Adjusted valves again. (exhaust valve was a little loose) Ran good 4 or 5 more hours and problem returned. I took it to a local shop this time. He called Briggs and was told to set the valves to .005 at TDC on both intake and exhaust. Once again, it ran great........for 4 or 5 hours.......popping again..........backfiring again!!!!!!! When I pull valve covers and check valves, the exhaust valve on both cylinders was a little lose. However, the locknuts on the adjusters were tight. I AM LOST. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
