If your oil level is to high it will do this. i would drain and refill the oil to oem specs slowly as not to overfill so it doesn't blow over the top of the piston.hope this helps

Briggs Stratton 5hp I/C starts ok, runs, but will not rev


My money is on a partial blockage of the main jet or the passageway to it. You're having to force it to run through the idle jet by fully choking the incoming air. There's not enough gas coming in with the choke open to allow it to run.

I'm thiniking total carb disassembly, carb cleaner and an air compressor combined with a ton of patience will take care of the issue.

Lots of ticking noise in valves, replaced head gasket, blowing smoke, replaced needle and seat gas flooding crankcase, Any one know why it ticks so bad?


incorrect method of setting valve clearance find tdc with the valves rocking, exhaust just closing and inlet just opening--- known as valve rock-- now turn 1 full turn and both valves will be fully closed
adjust the clearance to .010" inlet hot and .012" exhaust hot the noise you hear is clearance too wide

Briggs & Stratton 60200 series engine intake valve tar


I'm having the exact same problem with a Briggs & Stratton 80202 engine on my Mclane reel mower. I cleaned out the valves and cylinder head, put it back together and it runs nicely. I ran it for about a half hour then turned it off to adjust the blade. A couple hours later I went to start it and no compression. The Intake valve is stuck open with gum from running it for a half hour! The can of gas I have is less than a month old. I'm going to try a different brand of gas.

How can I repair my Briggs and stratton 6.5 intek



Fuel Starvation - Float Bowl Carburetor
1) remove air filter assembly
*be cautious of tearing the mounting gasket. If it does tear, you HAVE to replace it. It is part of the priming system
2) remove the float bowl fastener. This is the main jet
3) carefully remove the float bowl, the rubber o-ring/gasket will not be able to be used if it is removed, you WILL have to replace it
4) using a spray 'carb cleaner'
spray up thru the center of the carburetor
spray and clean the main jet with cleaner and 'tag' wire
(tag wire is very thin, and can be used to clean the hole in the center of the main jet)
5) clean any debris from inside the bowl or carb body
6) re-install bowl and center bolt, air filter assembly

*if you need gaskets, your Briggs dealer can supply. The kit is cheaper than individual gaskets, and all the parts needed to finish the above repair are in the kit.

Back firing, load engine noise, engine skip


Could use more info but here are some things u can check--Plug wire grounding to block, old spark plug--check head bolts for correct torque--carb adjustment or jet plugged-governor linkage not hooked up or improper adjustment of governor--if these are good then it could be internal--bad valves and valve adjustment--timing gears
