    I have the very same problem, with the exact machine. The connecting rod broke in half, the crankshaft journal is destroyed. to top it all, I had loaned it to my friend, and I said that the oil needed changing. No problem, "I'll do it for you".



    He drained the oil, put the plug in and cranked it. Shortly it goes kaboom!



    "I'm sorry". He says, "I'll fix it like new for you". Two months later I go for it. Most of the parts are missing, "I'm sorry". He says, "but if you can get it fixed, I'll pay you. The manual is missing. I need the correct crank P/N

    but, there is several for that type engine, and I dont know which to get.



    The other parts are pretty universal, so I won't have a problem.



    HELP!

    The supposed repair manual for ALL Briggs engines can be downloaded from their website once you provide the model and revision numbers.

I have the same problem. Rod broken and crankshaft junk. I don't have the manual either. Was going to try to order new engine. Engine doesn't have tag on it. Got all the info off generator. Went to troy bilt lowes website. It shows all the break down parts for generator. For engine it just shows #900 on drawing. When you go to #900 on parts list it just says contact manufacturer without any kind of part # or engine size. I went to Brigg & Stratton website and they don't list troy bilt model 030245. How can I find this information?

    A short block will usually fix the repairs needed for these 10 HP OHV horizontal engines.

    For individual parts, check out prices and diagrams at ereplacementparts.com or jackssmall engine parts.

    A NEW engine of this particular model, with the custom crankshaft is very pricey.

On the valve cover the model and series is stamped .. If you can't find it, call briggs with the serial number of the generator and they may be able to cross reference .... Both push rods for the 204412 are the same length ... Also I buy my genuine parts from Tulsa Engine Watehouse ... Fast service .... 1/2 the price... I had a problem with the push rod and decided to do a top end ... Parts were 42$

To get the generator off you screw the long bolt in a few turns and then tap it with brass hammer it will come right off the tapered shaft on the briggs powered generators

    That does NOT always work. You may have to thread tap the end of the shaft and install a push bolt puller to get it off.

My dad bought a Mod # 030245, and it sat for two years, before he needed it. Started it up, it ran for about three hours, and the generator burned up, the motor still runs perfectly, but no power, from Gen. we should swap parts. lol

The engine you have is likely a 10HP B+S model 204412. It is etched on the rocker cover if you'd like to confirm. My son just blew up mine, brand new, no oil.

What are the torque specs on intake manifold on Briggs & stratton


if there is thread locking compound on bolt or threads it must be removed, use a tap to clean the threads and a wire brush to clean the bolts. Use a thread locking compound (blue) when reassembling, torque the bolts to 30 ft. lbs. alternating bolt to bolt in 7-10 lb. increments. Recheck the torque after the engine has been ran up to op temp.

Briggs & Stratton Van Guard 16 hp D.C. Chipper with Gravity Flow. With fuel switch on and starting engine four minutes, white smoke apprears and increases gradually, then heavier and chokes itself...


Sounds like your carb is flooding. Inside the carb, there is a simple valve that shuts off the fuel flow when the fuel bowl is full. If this valve fails, or if the float sinks, then too much fuel is forced into the cylinder and will wash past the rings and into the crankcase. This causes the engine to run very rich. You need to remove, clean and overhaul the carb, and change the oil and sparkplug and probably the air filter too. Find the model, type, and code numbers on the engine and go to www.partstree.com , www.ordertree.com , or your local repair shop to get the needed carb overhaul kit. Some B&S engines have an option of carbs, so look for a name on the carb itself...probably Nikki or Walbro. The carb kit is not very difficult to install, but make sure to get everything very clean before reassembly.
Good luck.

Briggs and Stratton 22hp v twin OHV smoking badly


First thing to do is pull your dipstick and check for broken or missing O-ring also as you pull it, look to make certain that it was seated properly and all the way locked. If either condition exists, you will be leaking into the crankcase which will cause your symptoms
