Question about Poulan 42-Inch Steel Deck 17.5 HP Briggs & Stratton I/C Engine With 6 Speed

1 Answer

Starter Does anyone know the Briggs and Stratton engine model and type number? I misplaced my impossible to find Poulan Pro 300ex manual for their 42inch lawn tractor a long time ago. Can't find it anywhere on the web. The portion of the engine number that I can read is Model 31E707 Type 0603 then rust. It is the B/S 17.5 HP engine and I doubt the starter has changed in a while. Thanks for your help.

We have a 550 pro series and it didn't come with a maual and we were wondering what type of oil to put in it. The model number is PR550N22SHX.

I would suggest using Briggs and Stratton 10w-30 oil. If this is not the correct engine manufacturer for your unit then I would suggest using that manufacturer's oil. But a 10w-30 oil that is used in air cooled engines should work ok.
