SOURCE: Briggs 14 HP Vanguard runs well until PTO is engaged

First thing u might want to check is the governor--Make sure the spring and linkage is hooked up properly and the governor is moving freely.

Should go to the valve spring access cover. Is the PCV line and keeps engine from building up pressure internally.

To clean the carb you will have to remove it from the engine and give it a through cleaning with small diameter wires run through the ports and blowing out the gunk with low pressure air or WD40's little red tube. From your description, you need to do this as the ports are clogged and not letting proper amounts of fuel through to the engine.

good luck.

Simplicity riding mower with 16HP Kohler engine stalls after about 15 minutes. Acts like it isn't getting any fuel, but it will run again later.


I have seen this problem a few times and this may not be the solution however, check the fuel filter. It may have melted and partially closed off the fuel supply. The routing of the fuel hose will cause the inlet end to bend slightly if it gets too hot under the hood.

Hi , i have a craftsman 16hp model 944 602261 the engine run fine and the tractor work fine on each speed but when i engage the blade the engine dies the blade are free any idees ???


When you engage the blades you are putting an extra load on the engine. This mean it needs more fuel and more air to keep running.

I suggest cleaning or replacing the air filter, it may be clogged just enough to let the engine run with little load, but when you put a load it cant get enough air. This happened with my string trimmer this summer.

If that doesn't fix it then I recommend pulling off the carburetor (between the air filter box and the engine), taking it apart and cleaning it with carburetor cleaner. If its getting enough air at full load then it isn't getting enough fuel, there could be a partial blockage of the jets inside the carburetor.

Briggs stratton,16 H>P> runs smooth 'til mower is engaged.


Is the choke staying on perhaps? check spark and plug check airflow, get compression test maybe the oil/compression rings giving way... sounds like its getting hot and increasing fuel flow for some reason??? perhaps clean carb with some cleaner while running (remove air cleaner) spray directly into carby while running run at full throttle as you spray it will try and die ... relax on the spraying and see how it goes.. check air cleaner for blockages as the same time :) hope you get it working!
