When adding SAE 30 oil to new pw, do we add to the

From what i've read in the manual you need to fill both the pump and the motor. The pump itself will have a dipstick, the motor gets filled to the top. If the motor has two inlets one should fill up when you pour in the other side. Most briggs had two motor oil inlets so the motor could be used on several types of equipment. The pump itself should use about 9.6 oz

I have a Briggs & Stratton powered mower 40777 I recently replaced the carburetor, fuel pump & fuel pump vacuum line, mower will not start, it will when gas is pored into carb. I need advise please

Check the fuel lines. My brother had one that wouldn't start because when the fuel line was forced on to the fitting, some rubber shaved off the inside of the tubing and blocked the fitting. Also inspect the fuel filter and fuel cutoff or check valves if these are present. I haven't looked up your particular model, but some riding mowers have fuel cutoff interlock devices. Check those for proper operation.

What kind of oil in a22 ton briggs & stratton motor

BRIGGS & STRATTON ENGINES: For temperatures above 40? F use an SAE30W oil. Using multigrade oil may increase oil consumption. Using SAE 30W oil below 40? F will result in hard starting and possible engine bore damage. For temperatures below 40 ? F use an SAE10W-30 or SAE5W-30 oil. Oil capacity for the 6 H.P. engine is approximately 5/8 quart (20 ounces; 0.6 liter). Refer to Briggs & Stratton engine owner's manual for additional information.

Briggs & Stratton Engine turns but will not start. Sounds like metal rubbing when it turns.

It's goose is cooked. or notsee long play below.I assumed that was done first,.or the blade engage lever is disengaged now and the engine pulley to blades is relaxed, the engine may have cracked the rod or crank shaft.

I am adjusting the valves on a 16.5 Briggs & Stratton engine; how do I tell the intake from the exaust?

Rotate the engine in the direction it runs, since the stroke sequence is intake, compression, power, exhaust, the exhaust valve will open and close followed closely by the intake. After the intake opens and closes there will be a pause before the exhaust opens and closes again.

Troy Bilt Briggs & Stratton edger series 500-4 stroke

Check the oil level. If it shows overfull then likely the carburetor fuel inlet needle is not closing and there's fuel in the crankcase.

How to adjust valves on briggs and stratton 17.5

Remove spark plug
Remove cover from engine that covers the flywheel
Remove rockerarm cover or valve cover
Find TDC (top dead center) by rotating the flywheel by hand and your finger over the spark plug hole as you rotate the flywheel you will feel pressure against you finger at some point then stop.
This is the compression stroke it is called now find a long slim round piece of plastic or plastic ink pen to stick in the spark plug hole (If you are careful a slim screwdriver can be used ) and find the piston top, then slowly rotate flywheel again (cw) as the piston is moving up pushing the plastic up as you rotate the flywheel slowly.
a max. piston up or tdc as you turn you will feel and then the piston starts to go the other way,at that transition this is tdc (piston is on top of stroke) leave it there,,both valves should be closed at that point.
Have a feeler gauge and set the exhaust valve at a loose .002 and the intake a loose .004 be sure engine is cold when valves are adjusted
Feeler gauge goes in between the rocker arm tip and valve stem top for each valve setting.
Note the rocker adjustment at the push rod side of each valve by tightening and loosening to make adjustments,lock your adjustments in place and rotate flywheel a few times and recheck settings

205cc briggs and stratton snowblower engine surging or hunting

Surging is most often caused by lean air fuel mixture. Older adjustable carbs were easy to dial in by simply following procedure to adjust. Today's non adjustable ones are more challenging first make sure all carb passages are clear and your carb is crud free then if surging persists and carb is equipped with a choke try choking it little by little if it smooths out with choke on you know your air fuel mixture is lean. To fix you will need a set of micro drill bits to enlarge passage in air jet usually located on top of carb near throttle shaft or main jet at fuel nozzle inside carb. First find bit that fits current hole then carefully drill it to the next size larger. You may need to do this 2 maybe 3 times to smooth it out but don't overdo it. After making sure carb isn't just dirty I usually start with the air jet on top.sometimes that's all it takes

Briggs & stratton 20hp mod# 31P977 I replaced the head gasket and reset the intake at ,004 and the exhaust, ,006. Won't start. Backfires back through the carb. And ideas?

Spark, you have. Fuel ditto, leaves timing or mixture. BTW did you try fresh gas, modern gas has alcohol in it which attracts water and destroys seals..check the junkyard for Poulan chainsaws, junk seals
