There should be a drain plug on the underside of the mower deck. Raise that side of deck, remove the plug and drain the oil. Replace the plug and add new oil. Hope this helped.

SOURCE: what type of oil for a 650 series briggs and

Use 30 Wt. motor oil, I prefer castrol but it is up to you, Mobil is also good and Texaco or Union 76, if you use it in different times of the year say in the winter you may want to go to a mid range of oil say 10/30 depending on the conditions you use it in at extreme cold and extreme hot temperatures you want a oil that makes it easy to start and still protects the engine with a good film of oil. If you have any more questions about this post here with a response.

SOURCE: Briggs & Stratton Modle# 100000 will not stay started.

your engine is only running on the fuel you are pumping in, the carb. is not lifting the fuel on its own, maybe because of water in the bowl or dirty jets. You must take the bowl of and clean it out and depending on the type of carb. it might need a new diaphragm. Stephen.

Where can i get briggs 5hp valves with over size stems

try an engine reconditioning shop
there are a number of ways to go about it
a mower shop may be able to help find a place that sells valves
a recon shop may be able to supply valves with larger stems and then remachine the stems to take the spring retainer and collet
if it an overhead engine , it is easier to fit new valve guides and standard valves
if it is side valve engine , it maybe cheaper to get a new crankcase
it will be a case of making a lot of inquiries from engine people, mower repair shops and even searching the net for valve manufacturers and seeing what valves they have that suit

5hp Briggs & Stratton, idles great, but won't throttle up.

Hello, I have a older B.S. replacement engine for my sears riding mower. I have got it all installed but my gas tank is in the rear under the seat. The engine doesnt come with a fuel pump. I bought a vacum pump but does'nt have a port. I under stand the in and out on the pump. I took the engine cover off looking for a vacum port and cannot find one. I also looked all around the intake not one there. The only thing is the air breather. Can someone assit me in hooking this up to make it work. Thanks so much
