Question about Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton Intek V - Twin Vertical Ohv Engine with Electric Start 22 Hp, 1" X 3 5/32" Shaft, ModelNo. 44K777 - 0027 - E1

1 Answer

I have troy built lawn tractor with a briggs and stratton 18 hp ohv intek engine. It has 50 hours on it. Its about six years old. It is hard to start. if it does start it flutters, fills the air with white smoke and spits oil out of the exhaust before shutting off. Could it possibly have a ring thats not seated or broke. What do you suggest. Egine Model#3JD777 Type#0233E1 Code#030904ZA

Hello. With only 50 hours on it, it is unlikely that you have a ring problem. That said, let's do the following.

1. Install new spark plug[s]
2. New Air filter
3. Drain the gas tank, replace the fuel line and then fill with fresh, new fuel. Do not use a can of fuel that has been sitting around for more than one month.

Charge the battery fully and turn it over. It should take off. If not, remove the battery and take it to any auto parts store to be tested.

Finally, if you are still having a flutter at start, get a bottle of a fuel additive called seafoam. This will thoroughly clean the engine and the carburator. Run with this fuel while mowing for an hour.

These steps will generally solve the problem. J.

Changing oil in Biggs and Stratton engine


Use 10W30 weight oil. The capacity is 1.5 Quarts (48 ounces) with filter change. I highly recommend you use 100% synthetic oil in an air cooled engine. Change the oil and filter every 50 hours of use.
