Question about Briggs & Stratton Garden

2 Answers

I have a Scott's riding lawn mower with a Briggs & Stratton 17 hp INTEK OHV model #311-777. I am needing a repair manual for this engine. On starting - engine will turn and stop. Then if you manually turn it, it will turn and stop again. I have been told that the valves need to be adjusted but need manual and can't seem to locate one. Can you give me some guidance or at least let me know where I can get the needed repair manual here in Houston, Texas? Thanks!
