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

1 Answer

I have a briggs & stratton 31D777 engine 18hp on my MTD ride-on lawnmower. Now it starts and idles fine, but as soon as you increase the power leaver it gets just over half way and starts to pop and carry on and spits black smoke out the exhust with no power and almost stalls the engine. Once you bring it back down to idle it runs fine again. Any ideas with this problem? I've cleaned the carburator, replaced spark plug, air and in-line fuel filter and cleaned out fuel tank. HELP!!!

If this mower has a single lever that controls the throttle and the choke, then it is probably closing the choke before you get to the "start" position. To determine if that's the problem, get to where you can see the choke lever operate, then with the mower off have someone advance the throttle lever slowly until you see the choke start to move. Good luck, Al K

I have a Briggs/Stratton 18hp (model 31D777) that billows white smoke while trying to crank. It will catch and try to run, but sputters and dies. Oil is coming out of the muffler. Any ideas?


You have either blown a head gasket, or the rings have gone bad on the piston.

I hope it's a head gasket instead of the rings.

Good Luck!

18hp twin cylinder Briggs & Stratton backfire


Check to see if the carb is clean, if so the anti diesel value could not be working. Apply 12 volts to value and see if it move's. If that works then you may what to check the fuel pump and see if it pumps. After you tried all that then you may have change the main jet size because these engines come with a small jet for the EPA.

Engine seems to flood out when increasing speed and dies


If it starts lightly smoking black smoke at high RPM it is flooding or getting too much fuel. The float is leaking you may have not set the float height correctly when you put that carb back together. Or the needle and set could be bad.
