No, this will damage the engine. i do not recommend this substitute. It is best to use the recommended blend.

Oil drain plug for 7.5hp briggs straton engine

If you're looking to obtain an oil drain plug -- your post doesn't actually say that -- I'd recommend your local hardware or plumbing or home improvement store. Briggs & Stratton generally uses standard iron pipe threading on their oil sump drains. You'll want a 3/8" IPT plug.

I have a Briggs stratton 14 hp ohv I/c quiet model 287707. I had a guy change the oil & he put 10W30 synthetic oil in it. Now it smokes white smoke really bad. I think he put the wrong oil in

There is a very real difference between 30W and 10W30 oil. Whether it's synthetic or not probably doesn't matter. If you have the literature that came with the mower, it will tell you the recommended engine oil.
If they put in the wrong oil, they should make it right. You shouldn't have to pay twice for an oil change. It could be burning oil, since 10W30 is a lower viscosity than 30W. I would have them change it again, and see if it stops smoking.

What type of oil do I use for Craftsman 42" Briggs & Stratton 17.5 hp Gas Powered Riding Lawn Tractor for oil change

Only use SAE 30 if using conventional oil. Briggs is real specific about that. I highly recommend using synthetic oil in ALL lawn equipment. You can use a multi-viscosity oil like SAE 10W-30 if you use synthetic, but straight 30 weight if using conventional. The brand is up to you.

Hi b_fesperman,

Here is Briggs&Stratton's webpage with the oil specs for their engines:

Copy and paste the entire address into your browser and the information will open for you. Note that synthetic 5W30 can be used in all temps.

Hope this helps. If it does, please place a vote for me. Thanks,

Does the Briggs & Stratton 650 series have an oil filter?

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.

Remember when your searching for something you can't find the internet is always your best bet. You should also use a good search engine; is one of the best search engines I have ever used. I searched some stores that have the oil your looking for, one online store is and if you have one near you and they also carry it at Sears. The grade of the oil is definitely weird, 75W90. Also if you would like to look for other stores that carry it go to Bing and type "Briggs & Stratton Pressure Washer Oil" into the search bar.

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.

Need a Manual for Troy Bilt Chipper/Vac 192432 model, 01220l type, 9512061B code.......OR.... Garden Way model 47286

Gardenway went out of business along time ago. MTD used to carry some of their parts but much before 2005 is not available. The troybilt number you gave is the Briggs and Stratton engine number. The gardenway number does not come up on a vendor search. See if you can find a number like 24A-XXXXXXXX. If you can, I may be able to help.
Good Day.
