SOURCE: 31p777 18.5 hp briggs & stratton valve cover leak

Both can cause problems. It is recommend that you do not go on a grade more the 10% for your safety and the safety for others around. But if the valve cover is leaking this can lead to major problems if not repaired on a timely matter

SOURCE: how to adjust valves on briggs and stratton 17.5

Remove spark plug
Remove cover from engine that covers the flywheel
Remove rockerarm cover or valve cover
Find TDC (top dead center) by rotating the flywheel by hand and your finger over the spark plug hole as you rotate the flywheel you will feel pressure against you finger at some point then stop.
This is the compression stroke it is called now find a long slim round piece of plastic or plastic ink pen to stick in the spark plug hole (If you are careful a slim screwdriver can be used ) and find the piston top, then slowly rotate flywheel again (cw) as the piston is moving up pushing the plastic up as you rotate the flywheel slowly.
a max. piston up or tdc as you turn you will feel and then the piston starts to go the other way,at that transition this is tdc (piston is on top of stroke) leave it there,,both valves should be closed at that point.
Have a feeler gauge and set the exhaust valve at a loose .002 and the intake a loose .004 be sure engine is cold when valves are adjusted
Feeler gauge goes in between the rocker arm tip and valve stem top for each valve setting.
Note the rocker adjustment at the push rod side of each valve by tightening and loosening to make adjustments,lock your adjustments in place and rotate flywheel a few times and recheck settings

Briggs and Stratton Intek V twin 22HP motor misfires.


Misfiring could be caused by simple things like fouled or worn out sparkplugs or an ignition system that is slightly faulty or Fuel problems such as dirty or stale fuel or clogged filter causing a leam mixture. Some B & S motors have an switch that cuts the Ignition if the oil pressure or oil level is low.
Another cause could be the Valve clearances are out of adjustment.
Armed with your Engine Number, visit the B & S Website for comprehensive information and specifications as well as a good FAQ listing.
