The engine has just started knocking ( loud heavy & rises & falls with the revs.)while running and throttle control is now wide open or off only. It was bought new in '02. Motor model# is 31H777 type 021-E1 & code# 0201282A. Thanks Billy

SOURCE: Knocking sound from an '02 Briggs & Stratton engine.

Your engine is about to blow. That knocking sound is indicative of a connecting rod bearing out of tolerance. This condition never gets better; it'll finish out by breaking the endcap on the rod, and usually puts a hole in the block. Sometimes, it can be caused by a bolt coming loose from the endcap, and I've had success by taking it apart and tightening the bolt, fixing the problem for at least several years. This can only be done if there isn't any deformation from it knocking.

SOURCE: briggs and stratton engine model

there are the basic things for an engine to start. air, fuel, and spark. if you are getting spark at the plug one down. try taking your air cleaner off and spray starting fluid into carb with choke open then close. if it starts and runs a litlle then dies then you have a fuel problem. take carb off and clean real good take bowl off and clean with carb cleaner. that should solve you problem if not let me know

SOURCE: I need and exploded view

Get the model and type number off the engine and go to briggs website or you can go to another website such as partstree. On partstree.com scroll to bottom of page and select briggs. On the left side of the next page enter model number followed by a space and the type number. If it does not take the model and type number (happens sometimes) enter just the model number and hit enter, then scroll down the page until you get to the right type number. There will be a list of the illustrated parts drawings for the engine. These are exploded views.


Hope you find what you need.

If this was really helpful for you please rate four thumbs up.
