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
B&S Model 445877, type 0827 b1, 20 hours on it. Some times it seems that the starter,even after six tries, does not have enough torque to turn the engine .Five minutes later it spins the engine ok. Is there a compression release on this engine? Most of the time it starts and runs just fine Does this engine have a compression release feature? The reason for the question is that often (not always) the starter doesn't seem to have enough torque to turn the motor enough to start it. It does move the engine slightly with each try. The battery has always had a battery maintainer connected to it continually when not in use. Oil is 10w-30. Valves adjusted by by sears warranty service
Still sounds like a valve adjustment problem and as for relying on a Sears serviceman.....well. lol I just did a valve readjust on basically the same engine with identical symtoms and it starts fine now. As for the 10w-30, Briggs recommends 30w in the warmer climates.
