Open Question

I have a Craftsman mower model ##917.256490 with a briggs & Stratton 15.5 hp ohv engine. I put on a new stator and flywheel and it would not start unless I poured gas in the carb. Then it would run for for a few seconds. So I had the carb rebuilt and now when I try and start it it backfires through the carb. I checked the valves and they seem to open fine... Do these engines ever jump time?

Briggs & Stratton engine model # 4455770435E1, need to find out what part number to order to fix alternator? Told our "stater" was bad?


The alternator (P/N 592831) should put out around13-14 volts DC with no load (other than charging the battery. If the voltage drops only when the deck is engaged but not when the lights are on it could be a connection to the mower clutch causing excessive current draw. I suggest covering the fundamentals such as ensure the battery is healthy, ensure all connections are clean and tight before condemning the stator. then and only then would I remove the flywheel to inspect the stator.
