Use a thread locking compound on the bolts - and torque them to the correct spec.
This will prevent them shaking out.

If there is a simple fix for your problem, it lies in checking valve lash. Any other problem means going into the engine to find. I hope this is helpful for you.

I have a Craftsman mower powered by a Briggs and Stratton 775 platinum professional series with OHV. A couple of weeks after using my mower, I started it up and I heard a knocking sound I shut it off...


There is the possibility that the valves need adjusting. As you probably know, if they are too far out of adjustment, starting will be difficult and there will be "runnability" issues. The Briggs OHV engines all have adjustable overhead valves. Just remove the little cover stamped OHV, careful with the thin gasket behind it and get a feeler gauge, possibly a Torx head driver and box wrench to do the job. Some of the set screws for the rocker arms have slotted heads maybe. The Briggs site has the instructions for this and ALL the specs on all their engines pertaining to valve clearance on intake and exhaust. Many of their OHV engines also incorporate a compression release feature which correct valve adjustment is critical for it's correct operation. If you need more help or links to the Briggs help (under FAQ), then post back.
Most Briggs OHV engines are set at 1/4" past TDC on the power stroke. Many adjust them at TDC (with both valves closed), but for the sake of the compression release (works off the cam), Briggs specifies 1/4" below TDC on Power Stroke.

Briggs straton ohv on tiller , govener will not work, runs at high speed all the time, starter rope has become extremely hard to pull, will not spin engine.


The hard to pull, will not spin the engine issue could be because you need a valve adjustment. A valve adjustment is critical because it enables the built-in compression release on the Briggs OHV engine to function correctly and enable an easy start; plus of course, smoother running. Remove the valve cover and adjust those valves at 1/4" down past TDC on the power stroke. You WILL see a difference in the engine once you do the adjustment.. Here is a Briggs spec chart which has those values for their engines. Yours should be listed in the OHV engine section.

Here is the Briggs recommended tutorial on HOW to adjust those valves. Scroll down this page to "Adjusting Overhead Valves"

Can i put a ohc in my exploere or do i have to stay with the ohv what is the dif


You would have to change engine, OHC-over head cam is the cam sets on top of the cylinder head, OHV-over head valve the cam sets in the center of the engine using pushrods to open/close the valves.

I need a picture of the spark plugs on a 1998 ford taurus numbered


I don't have a link with pictures, but I will describe the cylinder and coil numbers for both the overhead valve (OHV) and the overhead cam (OHC) as best I can.
Facing the engine from the front bumper.
On the 3.0 overhead valve (OHV) the cylinder location looks like this:
1 2 3
4 5 6

The coil location looks like this:
5 1
6 2
4 3

If you have the 3.0 overhead camshaft (OHC) engine again facing the engine from the front bumper your cylinder location looks like this:

1 2 3
4 5 6

Your coil location looks like this:

4 6 5
3 2 1

I hope this was helpful.

Engine only cranks until it comes up on compression, then stops


I would be checking the valve clearences if its ohv they should be set at 4 thou, If it is side valve they should be set at 6 thou intake and 8 thou exhaust.

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.
