Well it all depends on what part of the engine it is. Most 22" mowers unless self propelled, are probably not worth repairing any major components as you can replace them for under $200.00. The "cause" could have been running over some immovable foreign object such as a rock. Can you describe what part is broken off?

While mowing with a 21 inch selfpropelled mower i hit a large bolder and the sound and power seemed to drop in half, but still runs smooth any thoughts?


Mower blade might be bent, that would cause it to run out of balance and it would slow down the speed of the engine.

I was riding my lawn mower and suddenly it stopped dead and it will not start now any idea why


Possible broken connecting rod. Check the oil and then turn the top of the engine clockwise, you are trying to see if it will go all the way around. If it hits a hard stop then you have broken internal components of the engine and that is where it gets very expensive, most likely have to replace the engine. This happened to a friend of mine a few years back when she let the oil get too low and she broke a connecting rod. She had to get a new engine.

Good luck.

I hev a briggs & Stratton 5.25hp lawnmower and


I would need the engine numbers to tell ya what to do for sure. It sounds like the engine is too full on oil. Check oil levels carefully.That engine capacity is only 1 pint/16 to 20 oz's ALSO you friend may have cleaned under your deck and turned the mower with the aircleaner DOWN. That causes oil to flow from the crankcase into the air cleaner and muffler.That aircleaner is a dry paper and should not have any oil on it, If this is the case then the oil accumulated in the muffler will burn off in time. Oil soaked paper aircleaners will cause this engine not to start.IT CANT BREATH
