Remove the starter rope assembly, remove the outer casing. When the flywheel is clear, you can do one of two things to loosen it...Remove the flywheel nut and the cup, take a nut of the same size and place on the threads. Turn down only a few turns, lift the flywheel with one hand and tap the nut with a hammer in the other. Once it is loose you will see the flywheel key. Good luck...Lee

Briggs & stratton mod. 406777-0115-E1 engine backfires thru exhaust

This is a true tale sign of a valve being out of adjustment or possible burnt or sticking. Most likely its just out of adjustment. Setting them to Book Specifications of: Valve Clearance (cold) IN and EX .005" (0.13 mm) should take care of the problem. Since you said that it runs fine rules out the possibility of a sheared flywheel key, though I have seen one run with it slightly sheared. Thanks; George

Briggs & stratton 5hp motor will not start

Check the flywheel key, it may have sheared. If the key shears it will throw timing way off. This would cause a backfire or "pop". Start there and let me know, Daniel

Briggs and stratton engine on my lawn mower won't start.

Remove the blade and check the keyway. If the key way has the shear pin still in it it may have been bent and not sheared off. That will cause it to be off timing. I would imagine the valves got bent from the sudden stop of the engine as well
