No, this is not a common problem and really should never occur. Even if the shaft were to hit something when rotating, the key-way would break before the shaft or the shaft may bend, but breakage is a rare circumstance.

Hi, yes you can. You will need to take the model, type and code numbers with you to a Kohler or Honda dealer. Either will have a listing on an equivalent engine. Regards Phil.

What kind of oil does the 22 hp briggs stratton take


from briggs site:
For optimum performance, you should change the oil in your small engine after the first five hours of use and then annually, or every 50 hours of use (whichever comes first).
  • Use Briggs & Stratton SAE 30W Oil above 40°F (4°C) for all of our engines.
  • Check oil level regularly.
  • Air-cooled engines burn about an ounce of oil per cylinder, per hour.
  • Fill to mark on dipstick. DO NOT OVERFILL.
