There are no timing marks, timing is correct when the flywheel key is in place, the flywheel is properly torqued and the air gap for the magneto is properly set

    the timing can still be very far out and you can get strange results to if the magnet in the magneto is cracked Re: Jeff

Briggs and Stratton 6.5 hp 120000 series mover engine. How do I set the valve timing gear ?


The crankshaft should have a marked "tooth" either with a "dot" or a "-"mark, the camshaft will also have a corresponding dot or dash. By rotating the crankshaft, align the marks on the crankshaft & the camshaft so that they are directly opposite each other. Drop the camshaft into place and the engine is now "timed"--if the marks are not exactly opposite one another, lift the camshaft (just enough to disengage the gear teeth) and try again, being "one tooth" out can make a huge difference--so take your time and make sure the "marks" are directly opposite each other.

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.
