Try taking off the engine shroud and cleaning the magnets on the fly wheel. Also clean the two little prongs on the magneto. Also clean the end of the spark plug wire. I use fine sand paper or emery cloth.

Good luck and let me know if this helps.
thanks roundo4

What do you set the timing on the camshaft/crankshaft of a Briggs & Stratton model 441777 type 0117B-1 2 cylinder?


Contact B&S through their web-site and ask them. Most B&S engines use a magneto and flywheel so there is no timing per se' as we would think of in automobile engines. Getting any engine to TDC is easy... remove the spark plug and rotate the propeller shaft by hand until the piston rises and strikes it and just begins to fall... you'll know the place where it reaches it's maximum stroke.

Why Spark on Briggs and straiten motor?


Does it have a shutoff wire on the carburetor?

Use a meter to check the coil at the magneto - if that coil reads "open" (no continuity), then it's bad & needs replacement.

Engine will not fire {no spark }


Did you sand the rust off of the flywheel? where the magneto is. And did you set it right? It has to be real close to the flywheel. The thickness of two pieces of paper. And yes the pto switch will keep it from starting. If it is ingaged it wont start. Can you hear it enganging when you connect the battery? Try turning switch on and off see if it will kick in and out. With key on

Wiring on an old 5hp Briggs and Stratton engine


The "heavy wire" connects to the spark plug. It should have a plug connector attached. There are 2 small wires. One of them grounds to the engine block (probably through one of the screws that holds the magneto in place). The other wire goes to the condensor/capacitor.

I have a Briggs & Stratton Sovereign 375 engine model no 1OD902 type 0129B1 code 03012751. No spark at all - any ideas please. Had the flywheel off - that's as far as I got. Bob


Bob, if you have the flywheel back on, first check the air gap between the magneto (ignition armature) at the magnets on the flywheel (a common business card works well for this) then unplug the small wire from the magneto and check for spark, if you have spark, repair the kill switch and/or wire, if NO spark, replace the magneto.
If you remove the spark plug, you can hand spin the flywheel fast enough to ascertain spark

Craftsman 21'' Lawn mower won't start


In order for there to be a spark at the plug, make sure the plug is grounded to the engine, it will not "fire" if it isn't.

Remove the cover with the crankrope, there should be a thin black wire going to the coil, going to a ground lug that kills the engine. Try unplugging this wire and re-check the fire...if it fires, there is a fault in this wire and should be replaced. The mower will run without it, but will not stop without "choking" out the engine
