Question about Briggs & Stratton Briggs Stratton Intek V - Twin Vertical Ohv Engine with Electric Start 22 Hp, 1" X 3 5/32" Shaft, ModelNo. 44K777 - 0027 - E1
It sounds like the oil was filled way too much and was kicked around violently as you started it, usually the oil filler plug will show full with only an inch or less showwing on the dip stick which is part of the plug. You have to screw it in and take it out to get the right measurement. Also cold weather may be making your oil very thick if it is a multi weight 20-50W oil for trucks, it is super thick when starting up. I would try a light oil like 10-30 if allowed in your manual, keeping in mind this motor always travells 3500 rpm where a truck or car would only be doing 700 rpm when cold started. For very cold startup conditions I would use Syntec 5-30W 100% synthetic oil (it's about five times more expensive than most) which I use in a 2002 VW diesel Jetta turbo with great results so far and it still gets 65 mpg after 10 years driving!
