Question about Garden
My 19hp B &S lawn mower engine is blowing burning white/blue smoke. I checked oil breather and it seems to be ok. I bought a compression test kit and I am getting a dry reading of 60. Is this normal. Engine runs but I would like to know if I should replace rings. And should I also hone the cylinder? And what should the compression be?
What is the compression ratio for my engine?
Briggs & Stratton side valve (L-Head) engines use a compression ratio of 6 to 1.Our Overhead Valve (OHV) engines use a compression ratio of 8.5 to 1.
What would cause my engine to "puff" smoke while it runs?
White/blue smoking usually indicates the burning of oil. Causes to this condition include:
The "Oil" section of your Operator's Manual also contains this information. Other possible causes include operating or tilting the unit at an angle, an obstruction in the breather tube (located behind the air filter), damage to the cylinder/piston rings, etc.
