Question about Kitchen Ranges

Open Question

I have a briggs & stratton model 401417 type 012701 code 78091412. was spitting oil out breather tubes at top of engine. i planed heads and put on new head gaskets, torqued back down to 165 lb/in. ran well for a couple minutes, then started spitting oil out of just one breather this time. not sure if torqued correctly as i can only find a generic service manual, not one specific to this engine. can anyone help? thanks, rick

If you can verify the model number (hers didn't, yours did check out) this might be the place to go:
Sears Parts Direct
Sears carries a huge line of parts for many manufacturers which are sometimes available from a storefront in your area or on line.
On your model number, there is unfortunately no complete parts illustration (line drawing) which they often have available and with a bit of thought, those give you enough insight to the construction to see what has to be done for a repair.
With the part number, I recommend you call Johnstone Supply if you have one in your area. They often have OEM parts at 1/2 to 2/3 anyone elses price. Typical savings; a washing machine pump that the dealer wanted ~$22 for, I bought from Johnstone for almost exactly half; ~$11. They are 'wholesale' but I have never been turned away.
For our appliances that have been available, I have copied (yeah, well, OK, stolen) them and have them on hand locally.

if your oil level is to high it will do this. i would drain and refill the oil to oem specs slowly as not to overfill so it doesn't blow over the top of the piston.hope this helps

What should the compressin be on a briggs


What is the compression ratio for my engine?

Briggs & Stratton side valve (L-Head) engines use a compression ratio of 6 to 1.Our Overhead Valve (OHV) engines use a compression ratio of 8.5 to 1.

What would cause my engine to "puff" smoke while it runs?

White/blue smoking usually indicates the burning of oil. Causes to this condition include:
  • Overfilling the crankcase with oil
  • Incorrect oil grade
  • Operating engine at greater than a 15 degree angle
  • Inoperative crankcase breather
  • Crankcase air leak
  • Blown head gasket
  • Worn cylinder and/or rings
  • Turning/Tilting the engine on its side for any reason (storage, changing oil, etc). If the engine has to be tilted, ensure the spark plug is facing upwards to help prevent oil from escaping the crankcase.
Also, be aware that any small air leak can cause an excess of air entering the crankcase and will create a higher oil mist than the breather is capable of handling. The excess oil will then return through the breather tube and back to the air filter. Engine oil capacity is dependant on your specific engine model. To determine your engine's oil capacity, please visit our Oil Capacitypage. Oil level checking and changing intervals are available on ourMaintenance Schedule page, as well as a hyperlink (text highlighted in blue) leading to oil changing procedures.
The "Oil" section of your Operator's Manual also contains this information. Other possible causes include operating or tilting the unit at an angle, an obstruction in the breather tube (located behind the air filter), damage to the cylinder/piston rings, etc.

Lawnmower hardly running after I cleaned it by tipping it on its side. I noticed oil dripping. If I open the oil filler cap it starts to run properly but with oil cap open oil spits out everywhere.Briggs...


Tipping the machine on its side can allow engine oil to enter the air filter box via the engine breather, this will then soak the paper element air filter, you will need to remove and replace the filter.

Pulling oil into carb thru right breather tube,what is the cause


A blown head gasket on an OHV engine will pressurize the crankcase and blow oil out. Make sure that it was not overfilled with oil before tearing anything apart.

Model 331877 briggs fuel pump leaks oil out vent


I just got done repairing the very same engine with the same syptoms that you mentioned. I had considerable oil coming out of the fuel pump breather hole (copper colored mesh). The source of the problem: a blown head gasket. This will cause the piston, in the compression cycle, to pressurize the crankcase through the head gasket leak into the valve lifter chamber and push oil out the vacuum tube (bottom hose) leading to the fuel filter . To fix, you will need to first disassemble the cylinder head from the engine. To do that you first need to disconnect the three hoses to the fuel pump. Remove the cover to the air filter, remove the air filter and the screw in the bottom of the filter housing. Remove the four bolts attaching the plastic flywheel cover and remove the cover., remove the cylinder head (8 bolts)and check the head gasket to confirm it is blown (you will probably see some dark brown or black discoloration of the head gasket between the cylinder and valve lifter chamber. Carefully remove all old head gasket material from the block and head surfaces and clean the head bolts. If either your cylinder head or block surface looks ugly, you may need to get them resurfaced (flatness tolerance is very small ) Buy a valve gasket set (contains the head gasket and other needed parts)
Remove the valve rocker arm cover (4 bolts) from the head. Mark the exhaust and intake lifter rods (they are different) Clean the combustion chamber. If your engine has many hours on it, you will want to remove the valves and check the valve rims and seats for wear or pitting. You may want to hand lap the valves to insure they are seating perfectly.
I coated my head bolts with an anti-sieze valve lube compound. The B&S service manual calls for this. Reassemble head and torque head bolts to 220 in.-lbs. (4 stages) Do very accurately. Compress valve springs, install push rods and set clearances between rocker arm and end of valve stem. Turn flywheel to move piston so that both valves are closed before setting clearances. install a new fuel pump on the plastic flywheel housing. I removed the breather from the top of the engine (two small screws) and checked the reed and oil drain hole, and resealed the breather cover (you will need to pull the flywheel to get to one of the breather screws. I used a gray high-temp rtv liquid gasket compound to reseal the rocker arm cover and breather body. Reassemble all parts and screws and use small torques as listed in Briggs Service manual. I put in a new spark plug, changed the oil and filter, and breather tube, and o-ring at the bottom of my oil filler tube. That should do it

Briggs & Stratton Vertical OHV Engine 18 hp blowing white smoke engine run great but a lot of smoke and also have oil being spit out of the black hose that come from engine to the carb.


Check your oil.

If it is overfilled, milky, or smells like gas. Your going to need to change that ASAP. It sounds like the float has stuck in the past or is still sticking, and it has flooded the crankcase with gas, which has mixed with the oil. And because it is overfilled it comes through the breather hose into the carb. This also explains the smoke most probably because the oil is spewing in the carb through the breather and being burned.

Oil in air breather


sounds like you have too much oil in the engine (should normally be around 500-600ml when there is too much oil, it gets past the piston rings and pushes it through to the head.

13.5 briggs runs rough spits & sputters


Hello rbryan492:

From your Description it Sounds like a Blown Head Gasket between the Push Tube Galley and the Cylinder, the Valve Clearance Requires Setting or the Flywheel Key is Damaged and Requires Replacing.
>>If you Require More Assistance, then
>>Send me the Model and Type or Spec Numbers Off the Unit, Please. With these I can Locate the Proper Manual and Better Assist you. The Model Numbers May be Stamped Into the Blower Housing (metal engine cover) Above the Spark Plug. Many horizontal shaft, overhead valve engines have these numbers stamped into the OHV rocker cover. However, on certain overhead valve powered generators, the equipment manufacturer installs a decorative chrome rocker cover OVER the Briggs cover. If your engine has a decorative cover, it may be necessary to remove it in order to locate the Model, Type, and Code. If this is a Briggs and Stratton Engine, then you can Also Use this Site Addy; http://www.briggsandstratton.com/maint_repair/BS_modeltypecode.pdf for Assistance in Locating the Model, Type and Code Numbers of the Engine.
Thanks.
Please, Do Not Hesitate, If I Missed Something or you Hit a Snag or this Does Not Correct the Problem, I am Here if You Require More Assistance.
Hope this Helps. Let me Know What Happens, Please. May the All Mighty Bless You and Yours. Be Safe and Be Happy. Thanks.

Good Luck
