SOURCE: timing for briggs and stratton 15.5 engine

There are no timing marks, timing is correct when the flywheel key is in place, the flywheel is properly torqued and the air gap for the magneto is properly set

SOURCE: Briggs & Stratton 6hp yard machine with 21inch

The fuel bowl needs to be removed and a new float and needle needs to be installed. The float "floats" in the gas bowl raising the needle, letting fuel into the carb. The repair kit cost about $5 and easily replaced. The float is attached with a pin and the needle fits on the float.

Briggs and stratton 6 hp engine


You can go to the B&S website and download a manual for your particular engine. You will need the model number of the engine. Not all B&S 6HP engines are alike.
Here is a link to the B&S manual page.

What is the magneto gap for a 6HP Briggs & Stratton 12H802 series engine?


Briggs lists it as .006 - .010 on this 6 HP L-head engine. The .010 width can easily be attained by using a standard sized business card as a feeler gauge (and it doesn't stick to the magnets in the flywheel). I double up the card, loosen the coil and let the magnets in the flywheel draw the pickup legs in until they press on the card, tighten up the retaining screws (threadlocker is optional) and your air gap is set.
