SOURCE: timing for briggs and stratton 15.5 engine

There are no timing marks, timing is correct when the flywheel key is in place, the flywheel is properly torqued and the air gap for the magneto is properly set

SOURCE: John Deere L118 stalls after it runs

2 problems are common with this machine.One is the earlier machines had bad placement of the fuel line at the tank causing it to get pinched off and restrict fuel flow.It may get pinched at the very top of tank where line starts or between very rear of tank and frame.2nd problem is with the decompression setting of the valves causing engine to have too much compression at start up.Set your valves when piston is a 1/4 inch past top-dead-center.Set your intakes at .004.

How to time a briggs and stratton engine ohv

pull it apart again and reset the timing as you are out 180 degrees . Place the piston on top DC with the valves in the valve rock position . ( exhaust nearly closed with inlet just starting to open) This will align the timing marks between the crank gear and the cam gear.

After cleaning and lubing a Briggs and Stratton started, it turns in the reverse direction. What is the problem?

I am guessing but I take it that you have ran it before and you didn't have this problem?
I ask because some Briggs -n-Stratton engine are made to run backwards.
Although I am unsure why these motor were designed with this intend.
If this is a new problem the only logical explanation is the timing is off. Off meaning around 180 degrees. This can happen if the flywheel shears the woodruff key. However since a backward running motor is not logical I suppose we can through that out the window.
Please respond with the model Briggs-n-Stratton motor and I will try and come up with some illogical solutions to the problem.
Hope to hear back.

It might help to remember that given the possibility that there is an infinite number of universes, there is at least one that your motor would be running in the correct direction. It's just not this one.

I need to know the timeing for valve to piston

valve timin can be achieved by aligning the timing marks on the crankshaft and cam gear respectfully. if the marks are worn off then it will be difficult to time without a degree wheel. im guessing u are repairing a briggs and stratton engine but they all time in the same manner. good wrenching!!
