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

2 Answers

Running a Vanguard 23 Hp on my Mud Motor.\r\nQ1: developing a hard starting problem, seems like starting on 1 cylinder, after the first tank of fuel this fall. Fuel filter, spark, and plug OK. Looking at the fuel system next. Q2: Also, is it normal for the starter to stall out against compression on the initial starter engagement even with the battery fully charged. On the second start attempt it will spin through and keep cranking. Any ideas???

It sounds like your valves are out of adjustment. Your starter will bog down if it is out of adjustment and stop at the compression release.
So just take your valve covers off and set your valve lash to
.006 intake
.008 exhaust

My exmark lawn mower has a 23 hp briggs and stratton vangaurd motor and when it is at ahigh rpm ist is running bad


it depends on where the fuel tank is follow the fuel line from the carb to the tank the pumps used on mowers look like a round cylinder with 3 lines going into it 1 to the carb one to the tank and one to the engine block/valve cover but sounds more like the carb needs a good cleaning pull the choke on a little and see if it runs smother

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..

The fuel pump works off vacuum pulses off the crankshaft. More than likely the carburetor needs to be removed and cleaned out. This is a common problem with some Briggs engines.

I have a 23 hp Briggs Vanguard that i have to run with the choke a quarter of the way on or it will die. What will cause this to happen?


It is starving for fuel. Replace the fuel filter first thing. Clean or replace the air filter. Also purchase a can of Seafoam or Techron fuel treatment. Follow the directions on the can and put some in a full tank of fuel. After running this full tank if you still have the problem then you may need the carburetor adjusted or cleaned out. I would advise you to seek professional help in accomplishing this.

Sounds like you're getting enough fuel (black smoke) Could be running on only one cylinder. Either stuck valve or loose valve adjustment or one bad magneto. You could try starting with one spark plug disconnected. If it doesn't start, reconnect that one and disconnect the other. IF it runs like it was, then you're running only one cylinder, and go to work on finding out why.

I have a B & S vanguard 20 H.P. vert. shaft, 8 years old on Simplicty tractor. Keeps fouling plugs. Clean or replace plugs and it runs fine for about 1/2 an hour then starts to miss, blacksmoke, and...


Anti-foul plug adapters might be a temporary solution (treats the symptom and not the cause).
Personally, I would take it to a good, reputable, small engine repair shop that has verifiable references, and have them repair it.

My steem pressure washer has a twin overhead cam briggs motor.... I cant seam to get fuel to flow into the nikki carb. Is there something missing? Like a fuel pump?


If the gas is higher that the carb it will not have a fuel pump. Have you unhooked the fuel at the carb to see if fuel is getting to the carb? If it is not you have a blockage in the tank or fuel line or a clogged filter. If fuel is reaching the carb you have a stuck needle.

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.
