Question about Troy-Bilt Heavy Machinery

2 Answers

Briggs & Stratton 650 (Model 120000) lawnmower engine on a Troy-Bilt CSV060 lawn vacuum/chipper/shredder. Was stored for several months with no oil/gas. Recently got it out and filled oil/gas. Would not start at first, though after a couple of days of trying it now starts with blue smoke, runs clean for 30 seconds, then stalls out. I have what looks like engine oil dripping from out of the air filter/carburetor assembly.

    you are clearly burning oil. did you overfill? or tilt the unit so that engine oil went into the carb through the breather? now the carb may be soiled/partly clogged, you need to clean it. esp. the idler air part may be at fault. sometimes it is possible to run it at high rev until the fuel has washed out the oil, but better clean the carb and replace the air filter.

Location for adding oil?


Hi,
Most small engines have a cap where you check your oil level. This is also the access for putting in oil.

Here is a link to the Troy-Bilt site for chiper shredders. I don't know what model you have but you can select your model and obtain a users manual.

Troy-Bilt Chipper Shredder won't start


It takes good gas, good spark, and good air for a gasoline engine to run well. The next thing I would do is put a new air filter in it.
