Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden
PLEASE HELP! My husband is driving me crazy. We have a Murray riding mower says it has a Briggs & Stratton Mower. We have replaced the selenoid, the key switch, battery and new spark plug. When you turn the key nothing. When we jumpstart it with an outside battery, it will spin like it is trying to start but it won't catch to start the motor.
Sounds like the gear on top of the starter is stuck or broken. Inspect starter. If it's broken, the starter must be removed to replace the starter drive. You may need to buy a Starter Drive Kit. If you starter has a flat piece on top held on by a retaining ring, it's part # 696541. If you have the older type starter with roll pin holding the drive on, you need part # 696540. You probably have the first one. To install the retaining ring, use a 3/8 socket to tap it into the groove. Dwain
