Valve timing or ignition timing?

valve timing you simply line up the tool marks on the cam and crankshaft, ignition timing is pretty much fixed, the only adjustment is a 10-15 thousands gap between the coil and flywheel. hope this helps

You can go to the Briggs and Stratton web site and to the upper right corner of the page, enter your engine model number, 31p777, when following page comes up scroll down to match with the type number, 0296E1, then you will be able to view all supported materials, this will get you to a screen to download operator's manual and an illustrated parts list.

Brigg & Stratton 18.5 O.H.V (2004) Riding Lawn mower Manual is needed asap. Trying to find a website to download and print ... Model 31P777 Type 0293E1 Code 0401282D 13AJ6936755 Please advise ...

This is Briggs and Stratton's site where you can download a manual after matching the engine number, however it may be that your model is older than the downloadable manuals are for.

If you can't get it there you could join a tractor/lawnmower forum. There you can post questions and get help from others who have that same riding lawn mower.
and if you post a request for the manual and perhaps someone would copy theirs and email it to you. That is a good way to get manuals and help for equipment etc that aren't available readily on websites online :)

Trying to replace a 31P777-0367-E1 on a John Deere L108 tractor. There seem to be many models of BS engines (different type and model numbers) with the same power and bolt arrangement. Will they work or...

The first two numbers is the size of the engine. You have a 31 ci engine. The 777 indicates it has an oil filter, a 707 does not. Any of them will fit right up, even a 33 ci. The only problem you may have is the alternator and wiring harness may be different from yours. That's not that big of a problem, you can just use your old alternator and harness on the new engine. You would have to remove the flywheel to get to the alternator though, which requires a flywheel puller.

I own a Sears 42 inch B&S 18.5 31P777 engine

Okay, here's the main problem. The engine itself (literally the engine with a bare crankshaft) is produced by Briggs. 99.9% of the time, everything else is supplied by the equipment manufacturer, although a couple get specific enough to have Briggs equip the tank. Not many, and they are few are far between. So you're dealing with the carb (Briggs) and more than likely, the fuel tank and lines supplied by Craftsman (I assume that's the make since it's a Sears).

It sounds like fuel has gotten into the engine, thus the black smoke. Not sure why in the world that would cause the lines to come off. Check your oil first and see if there is gas in it. You might need to replace the fuel lines, check your owners manual for the rider and see if they have a parts list in the back, anything they did not supply will say something like "see engine manufacturer". If the hoses are there, you can get them from them. But the carb may also need cleaned out or, possibly, rebuilt. Rebuild kits are generally pretty cheap and available directly from Briggs with the Model, Type and Code numbers from their site.

Hit me up if you need any more info.

31p777 18.5 hp briggs & stratton valve cover leak

Both can cause problems. It is recommend that you do not go on a grade more the 10% for your safety and the safety for others around. But if the valve cover is leaking this can lead to major problems if not repaired on a timely matter
