SOURCE: remove bottom pulley briggs@statton

Hi Jim, remove the centre bolt, it easiest with a rattle gun, then the pulley should slide off. Sometimes they freeze on and you may have to heat it with an oxy. Regards Phil.

Identifying the Correct Spark Plug and Gap

What is the correct spark plug and gap for my engine?

Due to the variety of engine and equipment configurations, your best source for spark plug information is your engine or equipment Operator's Manual. However, the following general guidelines will get you pointed in the right direction.
This guide provides the common spark plug part numbers used in our L-Head and Overhead Valve engines. For information regarding the service/replacement of spark plugs, please visit our Servicing the spark plug FAQ. Please be aware that the size/shape of the spark plug varies depending on engine design.

John if you pull the old plug out the plug number will be on the plug itself it will ahve the manufacture number and manufacture name. Otherwise take it to any parts store and they can match it. Nappa Auto parts will carry it for sure. Be sure to ask them what the gap is on it they will have in in the book but will be .0035 IN. I believe. Be sure to gap it as they are supposed to be gapped alread but some are not even close. Also Nappa will have the reference guide for the briggs and stratton engine but are a real common plug.
