Briggs straton 6.75 starts to die..if i open the fuel cap it runs again. also wont start when hot. twenty minutes or so it's fine again.


hello,After it stalls take the fuel cap off and put it back on and see if it starts,maybe the cap is bad or clogged and not letting air in to equalize the pressure of the fuel being used in other wards a clogged vent, this is a small thing but a big problem,,hope this helps, ``

Surging is usually caused by a lean condition You can try to turn the mixture screw ccw about 1/4 to 1/2 turn. If this does not solve the problem your carb will have to be removed, cleaned thoroughly, and reinstalled.

Sounds like you coil is over heating after running a few minutes. The windings are seperating, then when it sools they make contact again. Try replacing the coil.

Started briggs 15.5 hp engine. Ran for 5 minutes large plume of white smoke came from exhaust and now oil is dripping from exhaust pipe. clean air filter and has good oil level.


make sure you have the correct amount of oil in it and that its not overfull. after that replace the points and condenser underneath the flywheel that is underneath the shround on the top of the motor. make sure the points are gauged right. you can buy a manual for biggs and straton that will tell u what to gauge the points at. you will need "feeler gauges" to re-gauge the points. they are a little set of gauges that are really thin pieces of spring metal.
