Question about Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton Intek V - Twin Vertical Ohv Engine with Electric Start 22 Hp, 1" X 3 5/32" Shaft, ModelNo. 44K777 - 0027 - E1

2 Answers

I have an Intek 465cc B&S engine. When I try to start the engine, the engine rotates one or two revolutions and stops. If i manually move the engine in the oposite direction numerous time, it will finally continue toi rotate until it starts. When it starts, burned oil is dicsharged from the exhaust. Can anyone give a clue what's wrong. Thanks, Sam

    Thanks for your advice. The gas I used is old. I will follow your advice tomorrow and hope this solves the problem. I removed the spark plug and the engine turned freely. I suspect you are right on. The gas is not igniting and probably causing to much compression.

Have u checked the fuel filter

    here's what I
    suggest. The most common thing causes that you are describing is contaminated fuel. If a visual inspection does not reveal anything, I would drain the tank and the all the way back to the carburetor. Since I can't be sure where you're
    fuel pump is, you'll have to find it on your own. its either a round or
    square "gizmo" thats usually mounted on the left side blower housing
    near the carb. It will have 3 lines going to it. One in, one out and
    one vacuum line which I don't want you to disturb. After draining,
    re-fill the tank with fresh fuel. You're going to have to find a pump
    oiler, fill it with gas and manually "prime" the line from the pump
    back to the tank. The fuel pump will not normally develop enough vacuum
    to pull fuel all the way on its own. Thats why I recommend priming.
    After that you can remove the line that goes from the pump to the carb
    and prime that also. That way theres no air in the system to worry
    about. Then get yourself new plugs (or plug) depending on whether its
    one or two cylinders and a new air filter. Actually, I should have told
    you to put a new fuel filter
    Unless there is a failed component, such as your carb or fuel pump (if it is fuel related) this should get you going.

Try removing the spark plugs and see if the engine will rotate then. If not, check the timing marks to make sure the engine is still in time.

Briggs& Stratton 18hp OHV Intek engine will run only under a load.

Your PTO safety switch is opening intermittently. Would help if you would always add your model # such as 917.100000 that way I could look up on Sears site and tell you approx. Location of switch.

Need to set the timer properly. No instructions to follow. Want lights to come on at 6PM and off at 6AM. the timer has red and black pegs on the timer, HEL:P

Experiment with the timer.
Hook up the lights and timer. And read resource link below.
Put the trippers on the dial. Put red at 6pm and black at 6am.
Then manually rotate the dial two revolutions.
Turn the override knob to different setting, and then manually rotate the dial two revolutions.
Watch what the lights do as you rotate timer dial.
Then rotate dial two revolutions until current time lines up with stationary arrowhead located on inner dial.
The clock motor located inside timer rotates the dial, and trippers move small switch that turns lights on-and-off.

B & S INTEK 6.5hp timing issue

Your right but its not the timing but the decompression release. Has the oil been changed any time recently? theirs an arm on the camshaft the opens the exhaust late and releases some compression and as the motorspins it moves out of the way and full compression happens. The other thing that can happen is the flywheel key can be partly slipped ( timing off) these use an aluminium key and needs to be put back as one the other thing if any of the drive is loose so it can move on the shaft it'll act the same way. One other on an old but good engine carbon may have built up on the head or the piston making the compression higher. Most of the time if this is the case it'll only hit back hot

Changing timing belt, car wants to start, but won't stay running

what are you trying to do exactly?
when doing timing belts your not supposed to run the engine to see if anything moves. you rotate the engine over 2 full revolutions and recheck timing marks. depending on the car you have to rotate with tension loose or somewhat tight then loosen and retighted once crankshaft has been rotated 2 full times. remember some engines can be destroyed by a timing belt breaking and installed incorrectly. I have books here so list your car with proper engine. note SOHC,DOHC
