Most likely, the flywheel key has been sheared. This tiny piece of aluminum metal breaks to save the motor from doing the same when this happens. Remove the top engine cover. Then remove the starter/recoil unit . You should now see the flywheel. There is a slot in the crankshaft that lines up with a slot in the inside of the flywheel. The key goes between the two, you will be able to see that it is sheared if the notch in the flywheel slot isn't lined up with the crank slot. IF it isn't...key has sheared and now the engine timing is off..so it won't start. This isn't the end of the world. You will have to pull the flywheel off ...remove all parts of the sheared key...and install another one (99 cent part).

Hit a stump with lawnmower, now wont start


You may have sheared the flywheel key. This throws the timing off. If the shaft isn't bent replace the key.

Try changing your plug and check gap and put in some fresh fuel. Empty out the old stuff especially if it has been there a while. Also check your low idle setting on the carb open it up a half turn for starters. Good Luck...

I have a Poulan Pro - Briggs/Stratton 6.25. It ran really well and when i added oil (starting to think the wrong kind - sae 10w30 from gas station) it has continued to blow white smoke and then it sort of...


Yes,but do not drain it all off.It sounds like there may be too much oil in it.Drain some of the oil and start it again to see if that fixes the smoke.30 wt oil is ok to use in your mower.

Cannot find drain to change oil.


Poulon 550 yellow 22" Briggs and Stratton. It looks like you have to drain it out the cap by tipping it. There IS no plug on mine - spent 40 minutes looking for one, and I know what both types of the plug look like. What a lousy design. This mower is a piece of junk. The valve froze a week after I got it. Never again. A headache.

Poulan Pro lawnmower (Briggs and Stratton 128 cc engine) will start when primed but will not stay running. New Lawnmovewr, < 3 months since purchased at Walmart


IF IT IS A BRIGG & STRATTON ENGINE YOU CAN GO ONLINE TO BRIGGS & STRATTON.COM AND ASK THEIR TECH SECTION ABOUT THE PROBLEM. FOR 3 MONTHS OLD SOUNDS LIKE DIRT OR WATER MAY HAVE GOTTEN INTO THE TANK. WHEN YOU PRIME THE MOWER YOU ARE FORCING GAS INTO THE CARB AND ENGINE AFTER THAT THE ENGINE SHOULD PULL THE GAS IN THE ENGINE, I WOULD SAY THE CARB MITE NEED REBUILDING BUT NOT AT 3 MONTHS
