That's easy man! You will always hear, "You sir, need to gap this or that at EXACTLY .00071542 inches per square meter".
The actual "poor boy fix"-
Put your magneto back on there, and stick a business card from your wallet in between it and the rotor. Let the magneto pull itself to it, you center it, and give it just a hair of breathing room (to slide the card back out). Tighten 'er down, and you got it.
1.- If you can't pull the card out, it is too tight.
2.- If you pull the card out easily, too loose.
3.- JUST enough to pull it out, and have it drag just a bit on the way out is JUST ENOUGH!
Remember, on 4-strokes, they ARE forgiving, and can do miracles even if you try your best to destroy them.

Hi 1st remove the rocker cover and spark plug
hold a long skinny screwdriver down the plug hole and wind the engine by hand until you get top dead centre (NOTE WATCH ROCKERS) first the intake valve will open then close when it closes the piston should be coming up to top dead centre and both valves should be closed and the rocker loose setting should be 0.004 thou you need to undo the locking screw down the centre of the adjusting nut then you can adjust to setting, (DONT FORGET TO DO THE LOCKING SCREWS BACK UP) reassemble

A range of strip-down manuals for all Briggs & Stratton engines is avalable - I got mine from Amazon, but you can get them directly from Briggs & Stratton via their web site. They have a look-up system by model series, which ensures you end up with the manual that covers your engine.

You need to rebuild your carb. The diaphram in the carb has gotten hard and is no longer acting as a fuel pump to pump the fuel to the carb. Get a rebuild kit and a compressor (for compressed air) to blow out the jet passages. It is an medium to easy job, just watch the small parts. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------- Hint: Before you remove your fuel/air jets, bottom them out first and count the number of turns it takes to bottom them out and mark it down for each fuel/air jet. When you go to reinstall the fuel/air jets bottom them out and then back them back out to the number of turns before removal. That way the fuel/air jets are set to the right number of turns when it was running right. Good Luck, I hope this helped Please rate me...Thanks

Remove the spark plug. Turn the flywheel until the piston is at Top Dead Center (TDC) on the compression stroke. Continue to turn the flywheel until the piston drops down 1/4". Set the intake valve at .004" - 006". Adjust the exhaust valve to .006" - .008". You can use a pencil to know that the piston down 1/4". Just put it in the spark plug hole against the top of the piston and then place a mark on the pencil at the lip of the spark plug hole. Now measure up 1/4" and place another mark. Turn the flywheel unit the second mark is flush with the lip. The feeler gauge should be snug but move freely when adjusting the valves. Double check it after locking the rocker arm nut down.
