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

I have a Lawn Machines riding mower with a B&S 18.5 V Twin engine. It wont start. It has been turning over with an unusual sound and starting until now. It will click but not fire up. Tried to jump it with a car ( Is this a no no?) Didn't work. Mower is at least 10 years old. Thinking about replacing the starter but been reading about possibility of engine compression issues ? I am not a mechanic. If you answer, please keep it simple.Thanks

My brother had a similar problem. Then I found one of the three screws that hold the breather housing In the carb. Took off head and found the other one had passed the valve and busted piston and rod.I found some parts on Ebay and was going to rebuild, then a kid down the street found me a 19.5 engine for $75. After R&R a short time later it stopped on him again.This time he DIDN'T crank anymore. I found one screw hung holding valve open but no damage. Bought all new screws and dabbed good with LOCTITE and re-installed tight. Gave good time to set. Have had no more problems and my brother is a grass cutting addict:-).

Take the starter off and bench test it then you will know if it the starter,take jumpers connect the ground to frame of starter,hold unit down then touch the positive where the battery cabel was connected to the starter.this should tell you if starter is good or bad,then you can decide.

Wont run and emits white smoke


Hi Jeremy:
Sounds like there is still diesel in the fuel system.
There will be a plug on the bottom of the carb.
If you unscrew it and allow it to drain, it will flush the carb.
I'd suggest changing the fuel in the tank again.
You may also need to change the spark plug.
You won't have damaged the engine.
Cheers.

Try rotating the engine manually to check for any binding. I would also check the amp draw on the starter.

Have the battery tested at an auto parts store to ensure there is enough power in it. Sounds like it's strong enough to turn the motor with no compression (spark plug removed) but too weak to turn the motor with compression. Also check for loose or corroded wires.
