Question about Briggs & Stratton 50-Amp Automatic Transfer Switch - 1918

1 Answer

Briggs & Stratton Stator Rusting preventing Lawn Tractor from starting. Took Engine apart after one month of having Sears replace the Stator and in the ''no start'' condition the Stator had quite a bit of rust on it. After cleaning it the Engine started fine. Is there anything that can be placed on the Stator to prevent the rusting from happening again? A Lawn Tractor repair shop said to clean it and spray it with WD-40. I was thinking about coating it with Vaseline somewhat like a di-electric grease. The Tractor stays outside with a water-proof tarp on it and is only used on my Dad's 2 1/2 Acre lawn. Any Suggestions? Thanks in Advance ~stillin~

After a thorough cleaning, seal the surfaces that are exposed with Acrylic Automotive Top Coat or "Clear Coat". The acrylic base dries to a rock hard finish that is diaelectric in nature and will protect the surfaces it bonds to. Regap from flywheel as normal and this should fix it for two, three years if the machine lives under a tarp in the elements. :D

There are several possible Mowers of the "L" 155 versions.
John Deere LA155 garden tractor lawn mower. These stopped being made in 2010 (they started production in 2009, and so enjoyed a run of 2 years on the assembly lines). The JD LA155 is powered by a Briggs and Stratton 2 cylinder, V twin engine. This engine is 0.656 liters (40 cubic inches) in size and produces 22 hp.

1998 - 2001 LT Series
John Deere LT155 Engine: Kohler 1-cyl gasoline

2006-2006 L155c, This series was produced only in 2006.
Briggs & Stratton gasoline, 2-cylinder air-cooled, 724 cc [44.2ci ], 25 hp

Model 445777-0168E Code 021125YC, these are the engine numbers from a 25 hp twin cylinder, B&S.

Notes on these engines from parts supplier ereplacementparts.com:
Briggs and Stratton 445777-0231-E1 Engine: The proper flywheel part number and/or the alternator magnet size will determine the alternator type or output.

This 25 hp engine has 3 different possible alternators, standard circuit, dual circuit, tri-circuit. I would need the exact engine model numbers in order to precisely answer your question. Often mower models have choices for the engine they come with. In this situation the engine model is more important than the model of the mower.

Testing an alternator is fairly simple; all you need is a multimeter for testing.
  1. Disconnect connector from stator.
  2. Set multimeter for AC volts.
  3. Attach RED test lead to either pin on stator side of stator connector. (On single wire leads, attach RED test lead to the single pin.)
  4. On two wire lead models, attach Black test lead to the other pin. On single wire stator connectors attach the Black test lead to the engine ground.
  5. Prepare the lawn tractor for engine start (set parking brake, blade off, etc). Start engine and run at full throttle.
  6. Check output. Output for engines of this general size run in the 30 to 50 volt range. For instance the B&S V twin 22 hp AC output at full throttle is 30 Volts minimum. Other B&S on these machines spec 40 Volt minimum.
If your voltages are not in the manufacturers range, or non-existent, your stator is partly shorted or completely burnt out (open circuit). Either way you have to replace it.

A. In the picture is a single lead stator connector.
B. In the picture is a two wire stator connector.

Briggs & Stratton engines use 48 ounces of SAE 30 oil & Kolher engines use 2 quarts of 10w30 oi. Be sure not to over fill the engine will smoke like a banshee!! Verify the level with the dipstick. Oil can be gotten from Sears or from your favorite auto parts store.

So have you actually checked spark to both plugs? If so then inspect valves to be sure valves are operating. Sounds like running on one cylinder. A quick check would be to unplug one spark plug at a time. You may find if you remove the dead plugh wire, there is no change. If you unplug the running cylinder it probably won't start. Sometimes the compression release mechanisms can come apart or come loose. Download your manual for you engine model at www.briggsandstratton.com
