Most all manufacturers have the Users Manuel available on line you will need the Make and Model to pick the correct one. Have you replaced the battery. It can show the correct voltage but have no cranking amps. I believe if the solenoid is trying to engage the Dead Man switches are closed. With the starter disconnected from all power sources do the teeth on the starter turn or are they locked up? If they refuse to move do you have an Auto Zone around or another parts store or electrical engine repair store that can test the starter. Make sure the mowing deck is not engaged while you are trying to start the engine. I hope these rudimentary suggestions help.

SOURCE: how to adjust valves on briggs and stratton 17.5

Remove spark plug
Remove cover from engine that covers the flywheel
Remove rockerarm cover or valve cover
Find TDC (top dead center) by rotating the flywheel by hand and your finger over the spark plug hole as you rotate the flywheel you will feel pressure against you finger at some point then stop.
This is the compression stroke it is called now find a long slim round piece of plastic or plastic ink pen to stick in the spark plug hole (If you are careful a slim screwdriver can be used ) and find the piston top, then slowly rotate flywheel again (cw) as the piston is moving up pushing the plastic up as you rotate the flywheel slowly.
a max. piston up or tdc as you turn you will feel and then the piston starts to go the other way,at that transition this is tdc (piston is on top of stroke) leave it there,,both valves should be closed at that point.
Have a feeler gauge and set the exhaust valve at a loose .002 and the intake a loose .004 be sure engine is cold when valves are adjusted
Feeler gauge goes in between the rocker arm tip and valve stem top for each valve setting.
Note the rocker adjustment at the push rod side of each valve by tightening and loosening to make adjustments,lock your adjustments in place and rotate flywheel a few times and recheck settings

I have a Poulan PRO Model PB20H42YT. It was working great when slowly I lost forwar/reverse motion; freewheel control is engaged properly.


sounds like the drive belt is off or broken, on the lawn tractors if you remove the plate, where you shift gears, you will see the belt.

Need to locate lawn mower ID No on a Briggs and Stratton lawn mower


The Model number for the Lawn Mower should be located under the seat or on the underside of the hood. The Model number for the engine should be on the top shroud usually in the front or above the carb.

Won't start


If you don't hear a clicking sound when you turn the key, it sounds like the starter solenoid needs to be replaced.
Find your model number under the seat and go to www.precisionope.com. Look up your model there.
It may say Poulan on it but it was more like an AYP product.
