17hp b/s intek OHV after 30 min mowing starts running rough

If you shut it off it won't restart until complete cool down. New plug. All filters clean. Carb clean. Fresh gas. Had gas in oil changed haven't noticed it yet again. Floods really bad if you try to start after gets hot and starts running rough and you shut off. Pouring gas out the plug when you check it.

If gas is in the oil the needle and seat in the carb are bad or some thing in it. the gas will go in to the crank case and load the cylinder with gas. you can take the carb apart to see if something is in the seat. or replace the carb

I have a briggs and Stratton 22 hp Intek V-twin engine on our Craftsman riding mower. After about 30 minutes of mowing the engine suddenly began to run rough, loud and out of sync.


my thought is the valves are out of adjustment. that is the popping you hear or backfiring. i think if you take off and clean the carburetor and set the valve lash it will probably run like a new one.

Just maybe, since this is an OHV engine, the valve lash needs adjusting. Your are possibly seeing the results of poor clearance when the machine heats up and the metal valve train expands, Then after cooling, the train is within tolerance again, allowing the engine to start and run. Check into adjusting those valves.

The condensor is not the problem for they go bad upon not hold a charge. When the engine heats up and the engines dies out the problem may lay in the magnito's frame mounting from swelling from the heat, a loose mounting bolt(s). Or a Magnito that is ready to go out completely

Briggs and stratton runs good for 5 minutes then starts to smoke


My first thought is that the throttle lever is being pushed so far forward ( max RPM's ) that you are running the engine 1/2 or better choked
Look at the choke butterfly with the throttle in your normal run position it should be completely open
This may require and adjustment in the control rods or might be as simple as not pushing the throttle wide open
