How do I set the valves,what is the setting .020?


No a lot closer to .005 but need the engine info to give the correct setting. .020 will definitely cause the decompression to become non-operative.

I have a Craftsman DLS 3500 Briggs and Stratton 20 HP, When I engage the cutting blades the engine dies.


first, is this with or without the brake pedal released ??? I would check the seat switch first. Then, if you have an 12 volt blade clutch ( push/pull switch on dashboard ) then I would check it next.

Gas ran out of sparkplug hole


If you had raw gas in the cylinder to where it poured out of the plug hole you most likely have a carburator problem. Inside the carburator is a float and needle, the float pushes the needle into a seat when the bowl is full of gas so no more gas will flow into the bowl or the engine. If the float won't float or the needle is damaged or has dirt between it and the seat the gas will continue to flow into the carburator and on into the engine. If enough gas gets into the cylinder the starter won't be able to turn the motor over. You should also check your oil, usually when gas gets into the cylinder it runs into the crankcase and thins the oil to where it will damage the motor if run for any length of time.

Briggs and Stratton 20 hp intek runs great idles great but after running for 15 min. it acts like is running out of fuel and dies. it starts back up if you wait a few min.fuel filter new , plugs new air...


Had the same problem with an almost new Craftsman w/ Intek 20.0 HP. Check all the "usual suspects" and had to have a tech come out. He had me start it. It ran for a few minutes and stopped (per usual). He immediately went to the Anti-Backfire solenoid. It is an electrically operated "plunger-style" fuel line blocker. They are famous for going bad. The part is about $65 and its sole purpose is to starve the engine of its fuel supply at shutdown so it won't backfire. If it is disabled, the user must throttle the engine down for 10 seconds or so before turning the key off in order to avoid backfires. Gee... let's see, 10 seconds of my time each time I use the mower vs $65 part ... No contest! Remove the solenoid, take a pair of electrician side cutters and snip off the tip of the plunger and reinstall it. Problem solved ! ! !

Briggs and Stratton OHV V-Twin 24hp repetitive valve adjustment


Try pulling out the choke a little, if it stops backfiring the mixture is too lean, check the intake
pipes at the cyl head and also the plastic runners to the carb for leaks.
