Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden

Open Question

I have a Ransomes T1600 ride on lawnmower with a Vanguard Briggs & Stratton 16HP Vtin OHV engine. The starter fails to turn over on some occassions . Makes no difference if the engine is hot or cold . Shorting across the solenoid gets movement on the motor. Is it likely to be a starter problem? I have no trailer so difficult to get to my local dealer. Want to try to exhaust possibilities first.

lift your seat and look at the label that you got your model number from. to the right of the model number is the serial number. the first six digits of the serial number is the date your tractor was made - for example: serial no. 060802D002756 would make the unit made June 8, 2002

Could be that the needle is stuck in carb, or else the fuel pump diaphragm is bad. Check the pump, thats what I would check first.

Ok i have a problem with my Briggs & Stratton 16HP v-twin vanguard engine.When i start the engine and rev it up when i idles back down it sits there and rev's up and down then it straightens out and...


It appears that you have a slight mis-adjustment in the idle speed and idle mixture. To adjust setup, start with at least a half tank of fuel, and have engine at operating temperature (That is warm but not overly Hot). The Briggs & Stratton Website manuals section should show the locations of the adjusting screws if you are not sure of them.
To adjust idle speed set Throttle control to minimum and adjust screw on throttle butterfly to maintain a good idle speed. To adjust idle mixture, screw in idle mixture screw (Lean) until motor falters and then screw out (Rich) until it falters again. Correct setting is the halfway point of these two positions. You may have to re-adjust idle speed again and also the mixture to get best running.
If you are not comfortable doing this, take it to a B & S dealer.

Head bolt torque for 16hp horizonal shaft engine


Anywhere from 35 lbs to 220 lbs, depending on the series of your engine. For your engine, the head bolt torque should be 190 lbs.

But I've attached a chart for you to utilize to make sure of your exact engine model series, just in case there was a transposed number, etc.

http://www.small-engines.com/torque.html

Here's the official Briggs & Stratton chart for all versions of their engines, which confirms the 190 lbs torque spec.

Hope you found this Very Helpful and best regards!
