You must remove the starter cover. Remove the metal shroud that includes the fuel tank. Tou will see the flywheel (it has a number of curved fins on the edge.)Remove the nut holding the flywheel and find one of the same thread size. Use the one you found and thread it on just a few turns. Take the edge of the flywheel in one hand and tap on the nut with the other using a hammer. You may have to rap sharply. Once the flywheel comes loose, pick it off of the engine and you will see the keyway on the top of the shaft. The key connects the flywheel to the shaft and will break if you hit something very strong. If you change the key and it starts running correctly and you had hit something prior to the break, CHECK THE BLADE...Good luck...Lee

I have a Yard Machines/ Briggs & Stratton 675 series 190cc lawn mower. It started this morning then stopped. I replaced the spark plug now the pull/start cord won't pull, what could be the problem.


CHECK THE OIL. If oil level gets too low, the engine may seize due to excessive friction. Check the safety interlock cable for proper operation. Check under the mower for anything that may prevent the blade from turning. If the mower hit something hard like a stump, tree root, or a large stone then check the woodruff key where the flywheel slides onto the crankshaft (there is a notch in both the flywheel and the crankshaft where this key fits). If the notches are misaligned, then the key is sheared. If the key is sheared, remove the flywheel, replace the key, reinstall the flywheel.

Do you have spark?
Do you have fuel delivery to carb?
If you have spark and fuel delivery then check your flywheel key. This key times your engine. If it's an OHV then your lash might not be set right.

Timing is off nedd to know what depth to set magneto at briggs and stratton 600 series lawn mower 190cc


the timing is fixed by way of woodruff key in the crank which locates into a chanel in the flywheel and is not adjustable. If you mean the air gap between the ignition unit and flywheel then set it to aprox .002-.005 inch
