What causes a lot of gas in oil on 8.5hp B&S


This would be caused by a sticky needle valve on the float in the carburetor.You have three cures 1. remove and clean the carburetor internally. 2. replace the carburetor with a new one. 3. or most simply buy and install a fuel shut off valve and turn it off when not in use. make sure you change the oil 1 4 ID LINE GAS FUEL SHUT OFF VALVE TECUMSEH BRIGGS

Getting fuel in oil on 19hp b&s motor. Cleaned carb and drained oil, fresh oil and started motor, motor ran for 3 or 4 minutes then had to use a little choke to keep running and then it started...


How long did it take to do this job..did you clean the the carb first...then the oil or vise versa...the reason I as is ma y if these motors are equipped with an electric valve on the carb that go bad or stuck allowing the gas to continue flowing after shut down eventually in the intake valves and into the crankcase...causing smoke and high crankcase pressure and out the carb and exhaust...no use changing it WILL happen again..the fix is simple put an inline gas shut off and shut it off if only shut down for minutes...happened to my 18 horse Briggs...just shut it off every time you turn the engine off..Hope this helps..good luck..

Very likely, the piston rings are badly worn or stuck. There may even be a small hole in a piston. In any case, you will need a major tear-down to repair this one. This is usually caused by lax oil-changes. It might be better to purchase a replacement engine than try to fix everything that could be wrong with the present unit if you take into account parts and labor. Hope this helps!

Changing motors


i think what you are describing is the fuel shut off solenoid. i am not sure how it wires up but the workaround i have used is to replace the carb with an older model,same approx engine. they dont retool the blocks. find an older model 12 1/2 horse without them you should be fine.the wires if i remember right is gray and black from the solenoid

I have a Toro Wheel horse, 13-horse Briggs & stratton and have zero spark what do I look for. I replaced the spark plug and have a full charged battery. I know little about engines so if you suggest i...


Usually when you have zero spark, it's one of 3 things. Either there's a shutoff that is trying to shut it off when it's not supposed to, the coil is bad, or the flywheel key is sheared.
