Briggs and Stratton GenPower 11 generator cover plate ???

I have a Briggs and Stratton GenPower 11 generator and am looking to order a cover plate, does anyone know where to find one. I've taken it to a B&S dealer here in Canada and they cannot locate the part which seems hard to believe.

I have a Briggs & Stratton GENPOWER 11 generator that is electric start. The electric start will not start the motor or ever turn it over. I can turn the key on and jump across the terminals on the starter and it will run only if I continue to squirt starter fluid in the carb. My question is, if the ignition switch is bad, could that be the reason it will not stay running. My only guess is if the ignition switch is bad, the motor thinks it is in the off position at all times. Thanks, R Ray

Part number for carburetor bs1525w-2porter cable generator 10hp bs engine

well theres two ways to obtain this carb, one is to go to porter cable site and look up model number and scroll down to parts then over to engine then to carb . this then can be ordered right from porter cable , the other way since this engine is made by briggs and Stratton , if you look at valve cover on left side there are numbers stamped into cover there, use this number on briggs site to cross over and find exact number for carb in parts , then simply obtain part from a briggs distributor !!

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.

I have a briggs & stratton genpower 305. I pull chain to start and it does nothing. The chain feels like its loose.

Sounds like you don't have compression! It could be many things a broken piston, one of the rocker arms could be loose, or you actually have a broken rocker arm.Dissassemble where the rocker arms are and check if everything is in working order if it is take off the spark plug and check if you can see the piston going up and down . Let me know how it goes so we can try and solve the problem!

Will not stay running

Sounds to me like the engine is not getting fuel. Check for clogged fuel line and check the fuel pump or a possible stuck needle valve in the carburetor. If it runs on starter fluid, it is not an ignition problem.

Briggs/stratton how do I get cover off of pull rope. looks like it's rivited on

you have to drill the rivets out. If you're changing\rewinding the rope, you have to do it from the backside.Respringing it you'll have to change the whole thing, which is easier anyway. your local briggs dealer can order one for you, and after you drill the rivets out, the new one will come with little bolts and nuts.

Where do i get a coil at?

Well, if Briggs and Stratton engine, then try briggs and stratton.

If Robin / Subaru engine, try there.

Write down the model type and serial numbers, then pay a visit to local small engine repair shop and have them order for you.
