Question about Garden
Mowe with Briggs and Stratton 20 HP twin engine turns over but no spark at spark plug points. Mower simply stopped and would not restart. Have checked all microswitches with multimeter. Battery good, just charged. Mower has been used only 40 hours or so. Thanks, Bruce, Central Victoria, Australia
Sorry, Bruce, but if you're not getting any spark I would replace the ignition coil (actually a magneto). It's usually a little pricey. Newer models have an electronic firing circuit instead of mechanical points so it's nearly impossible to test accurately.

an easy way to know that is to start engine and give it a shot of starting fluid ,if you can keep it running by this method I would replace diaphragm.

First thing to do is pull your dipstick and check for broken or missing O-ring also as you pull it, look to make certain that it was seated properly and all the way locked. If either condition exists, you will be leaking into the crankcase which will cause your symptoms

these are common for doing this ,if you dont want to pull it down and hone the cyl. then i would use a heavier oil say 20w/50and that will probabley solve your problem

I put a new carburator kit in a Briggs & Stratton 18 HP Twin. But did not replaced the needle nor the new seat that came with kit, because I did not know how to remove it and did not to damage it. now the gas over flows
