    I have one also and it melted too. Contacted Ryobi one month after my warranty expired. They said (paraphrased) "tough luck, the guarantee had expired". I'll never buy another Ryobi product again... pure garbage!!!

It is the biggest piece of JUNK ever sold to the public. Do yourself a favor; Stay away, nothing but problems, never start when you need it, never runs properly and after spend time and money to repair it is still a worthless piece of JUNK.

2003 dodge Dakota 4.7l. High mileage. OBDII throwing a new code everytime I fix something. Crank sensor & Cam sensor - replaced. IAC-replaced. PCM-replaced. Throttle body cleaned. O2...

Have you checked the wiring that goes to both the Crank and Cam sensors? Most of the time the wires are close to a heat source (ie: exhaust manifold) and the plastic covering starts to melt causing the cooper on wires to make contact and thus making engine stop, you will have to take off the protective covering as well as tape around the wires and inspect each and every one. Had same problem with Dodge caravan, it turns out the Crank Sensor plug wires were melted together. Good Luck.

How to time the 12H802 modle lawn mower

This is the B & S 6 HP engine. There are multiple versions of this engine:


and several others.

The timing is fixed. It is not changeable. Timing can change if the flywheel key is partially sheared because the position of the magnetos' flywheel magnet is rotated forward or back from it's usual position. That is the only way the timing can change.

Now if we are talking valve cam timing. Align the dot holes on the crankshaft and cam shaft gear. The valves should be closed with piston at top of the cylinder.

Thanks for choosing FixYa.

The plastic dries out over time, and this is what may have happened. You could probably remove it by exerting a great deal of force, but will most likely break either the cam itself or the part where the cam is inserted. You could try squirting a little lubricant (maybe Tri Flow?) and leaving it for a while to penetrate before trying again to remove the cam. Otherwise, it would be best to take it in to a repair shop where an expert can work on it and maybe replace any parts that are no longer working properly.
