Question about Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton Intek V - Twin Vertical Ohv Engine with Electric Start 22 Hp, 1" X 3 5/32" Shaft, ModelNo. 44K777 - 0027 - E1

2 Answers

On a 2-cylinder, 25 hp Briggs & Stratton INTEK twin engine (year 2002, Model 44577-0134-E1), there is a ~1.5-inch rubber hose to the top of the right OHV cover coming down from a round plastic piece in the fuel line. It is cracked and torn where it is attached to the OHV cover. Questions: What is the purpose of the hose and how do you replace it? Thank you for your assistance.

    Yes, it runs when the remnant of the hose is attached. When not attached, the engine will stall after a minute. Must be a fuel pump. I guess I need to pull the valve cover to replace the rubber fitting that is torn. Does this make sense?

Ok I haven't worked on this exact model before but Im curious if the engine runs?
It sounds to me like a fuel pump that uses crankcase pulses to pump the fuel. It is very common way to pump fuel but usually the pump portion is in the carb and not the fuel line.
If it were attached to the intake Id say it was a crankcase breather.

    Yeah it makes sense. the tear must not be too bad though if it still runs. replacement is the best solution though. Id say it is indeed a low pressure pulse fuel pump. I think you will be all set with a new one. Taping it up might be a temporary solution if the engine seems to starve for fuel under load.
    Have a great weekend.

That hose sends air pulses to the fuel pump to pump fuel from the tank. If it is cracked, the fuel pump will not work correctly. The parts illustrations for B&S **** so you should take the remnamt to an auto or tractor shop to get a replacement. Short term, duct tape might get you cruisin' the back 40.
