Hello; The Briggs engine front case is shaped to accommodate the internal mounting of the Alternator section. A service manual for this model would be very helpful. I believe you need to dismantle the back of the Alternator where the outlets are and then the outer case with the stator windings in it. This will leave the rotor ( the long shaft with windings on it ) which will be attached to the output shaft of the engine by some coupling device the you must dismantle. John

6.5 briggs and stratton leaking motor oil through the filter area


How does it run? Is it back firing through the air filter box area? And although your stating it is oil is it actually oil or gasoline that is black due to getting dirty? Don't shoot me! I'm going on what information I'm reading what you submitted. If oil is it enough to show up quickly on the dipstick/engine oil level ? Get back to us and we can go further.

Gasoline in mixed with oil in the crankcase also oil pouring out from the valve cover. Runs rough and smokes badly. What are the possible causes?


Gasoline in the oil is indication of fuel leaking past the needle and seat when the engine is not running (also high pressure in the fuel tank). You may be able to continue to use the generator with weak needle and seat (change oil) , however you must shut off the fuel when the engine is off. Easy fix however by installing carb kit. Find model number of the engine (stamped on fan cover) and contact small engine repair shop or look on line. Do not run the engine with gas in oil. Good luck.

12hp brigg & stratton engine gas mixing with oil in engine block..when start engine runs high rpm can not idle & look like gas come out carb air cleaner overflows & flood out & stop engine...


Sounds to me like the float needle valve in the carb is leaking. This will cause fuel to over flow out of carb, and will even get into the engine oil. Check to be sure that float is not got gas in it the can go bad. Also check float adjustment. Check needle and seat very carefully for dirt or wear. Just the slightest bit of dirt or wear can cause it to leak. Hope this helps.

I have a gas Yard Machine Lawn Mower by Briggs and Stratton. I cannot keep it running and it is loosing oil. What do I need to do?


May be time for a tune up. Replace spark plug, air filter, change oil and sharpen blade. You may have some water in your gas. I would check to see where it is leaking oil. It may be the oil seal on the pto(bottom) side of the engine leaking and needs to be replaced.

Generator is burning oil and choking out


You have/had too much oil in it. After it is brought down to proper level, it may have to burn the oil that is in areas that it should not be in. Another thing that may cause this, is a dirty air filter, can cause enough suction to pull oil around valves, and other places a clean filter will not. It may have oil in the filter too.
