Question about Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton Vanguard V - Twin Vertical Ohv Engine with Electric Start 23 Hp, 1" X 3 5/32" Shaft, ModelNo. 386777 - 0036 - E1
Was in tall grass mowing engine made a noise like it had hit something and died. pushed it out of grass tried to start wouldn't crank turned mag backwards and then it would crank very fast but not fire. where do I start to find problem
I gess you busted the crack shaft push rod so the piston is not now moving up and down the bore
take off the cylinder head and turn the motor by hand till its at the top of the bore, then rock the flywheel to and frow if its turns a long way before the piston moves down the bore strip the engine down so you can repair it,,,if thats pos!
