Question about Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton Intek V - Twin Vertical Ohv Engine with Electric Start 22 Hp, 1" X 3 5/32" Shaft, ModelNo. 44K777 - 0027 - E1

2 Answers

I have a Briggs & Stratton Intek V-Twin 20 on my John Deere riding lawn mower and it just started smoking and has a lacked power and died. Upon closer inspection I found that it would only run when I use starting fluid. I took off the OHV covers and discovered that one of the push rods was not in place and functioning to open and close the valve. I put the rod back in place and adjusted both valves on both sides and tried to start the motor. Once again the engine would only run when starting fluid was used. Do I have a blown head gasket? If so, where can I find help to repair it myself? Thanks.

This does not sound like a head gasket issue. Your description indicates fuel flow issue. Items involved are fuel filters, fuel itself, and the carb.

Push rods don't just become loose! It sounds as if either something has broken or come undone. A smoking engine means that oil is leaking into the combustion space. So my guess is something is wrong with the valve gear. You will need to remove the cylinder head and verify that all is as it should be. You will need a cylinder head gasket set to be able to replace the cylinder head.

Changing oil in Biggs and Stratton engine


Use 10W30 weight oil. The capacity is 1.5 Quarts (48 ounces) with filter change. I highly recommend you use 100% synthetic oil in an air cooled engine. Change the oil and filter every 50 hours of use.

Engine smokes . is it worth fixing


Hi and welcome to Fixya. The smoking can be stoped with a new set of rings and some hand lapping of the valves and seats with grinding compound. If your a fair mechanic it would be worth the effort. A new 20 HP v-twin will set you back a good bit of money. The parts can be ordered either on line or you can get them at a local lawn mower parts supply. Rings are about $35.00 per cyl and the the gaskets are relatively cheap. Valve grinding compound you can get at any automotive parts store. Buy a new set of valve stem seals also if you do fix it.

I have seen new LT120's listed in the $1999.00 - $2299.00 price range.

Your call as to fix it or... not purchase the unit. Depending on the asking price.... and the condition of the Lawn Tractor it might be worth the time and effort.
