Question about Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton Vanguard V - Twin Vertical Ohv Engine with Electric Start 23 Hp, 1" X 3 5/32" Shaft, ModelNo. 386777 - 0036 - E1

1 Answer

I have a 23 hp Briggs vanguard engine-V Twin Model 380447/type 76-E1 code 4241. The engine is less than two mowing seasons. The engine will not turn over properly and I have used another start I have and it does the same. I had the origionsal starter rebuilt and it does the same. I do not feel it is the engine. When I go on line and search for a new starter I see the Briggs starters are listed as one starter for a 8 through 23 hp engine. Is there a heavy duty starter or a starter just for the 23 hp. I am niot good at on line stuff....gary gws@gulfwidesafety.com

Have a 23 Vanguard on a mud boat and when engine damp from dew or fog, engine turns over but will not start. When engine dries, starts right up.


Your coil may be getting damp or wet..try using a plastic bag over the coil..or use some spray that will keep the damness out..good luck..

After about 30 to 40 minutes of use (varies, the


I have a 7 year-old craftsman mower with a 22 HP Briggs engine that has the same issue. After about an hour, the mower acts as if it is starving for fuel and then stalls. Then after about 5 minutes of sitting, it will run for a little while longer.
If your engine is similar to mine, then its carb has a fuel shut off solenoid which shuts off fuel to the Main Jet when Voltage is removed to prevent backfiring when the key is shut off.
Unfortunately, this solenoid can also cause the carb to starve for fuel when not working properly. In my case, when I cleaned the solenoid and the solenoid's connections, the tractor had no problem after that.

Hope that helps,

Check you float in the carb I had one a few years back and it was partualy plugged cleaned it out and everthing worked fine. Also is the PTO binding up or bearings going bad putting an excessive load on the motor.
