The Power That Works For You.
Thank you for selecting a Briggs & Stratton engine to power your equipment.
Briggs & Stratton is committed to producing a line of engines which will make your life’s chores easier to perform. We have,
at the same time, improved the design of our engines so they are environmentally friendly. Since 1995, we have succeeded
in reducing smog-forming exhaust emissions from our engines by 70%. Briggs & Stratton’s efforts have not stopped there.
We are also committed to designing and introducing even cleaner engines in the future, while maintaining our reputation for
excellent utility and value.
Briggs & Stratton’s environmental awareness has resulted in the engineering of the “Smart-Fill” gas can, featuring a spill
resistant nozzle which opens only when fully inserted into the gas tank, and which shuts off automatically when the tank is
full. Because refueling spills can harm the environment, the Smart-Fill container helps preserve a stronger ecosystem by
reducing this source of pollution.
We hope you will enjoy your new engine and equipment. We welcome you to our worldwide family of Briggs & Stratton
engine users.
Best Wishes Always,
The Employees of Briggs & Stratton Corporation
Look For Relevant Emissions Durability Period and
Air Index Information On Your Engine Emissions Label
Engines that are certified to meet the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Tier 2 Emission Standards must display
information regarding the Emissions Durability Period and the Air Index. Briggs & Stratton makes this information available
to the consumer on our emission labels.
The Emissions Durability Period describes the number of hours of actual running time for which the engine is certified to
be emissions compliant, assuming proper maintenance in accordance with the Operating & Maintenance Instructions. The
following categories are used:
Moderate:
Engine is certified to be emission compliant for 125 hours of actual engine running time.
Intermediate:
Engine is certified to be emission compliant for 250 hours of actual engine running time.
Extended:
Engine is certified to be emission compliant for 500 hours of actual engine running time.
For example, a typical walk-behind lawn mower is used 20 to 25 hours per year. Therefore, the Emissions Durability
Period of an engine with an intermediate rating would equate to 10 to 12 years.
The Air Index is a calculated number describing the relative level of emissions for a specific engine family. The lower the
Air Index, the cleaner the engine. This information is displayed in graphical form on the emissions label.
After July 1, 2000, Look For Emissions Compliance Period On
Engine Emissions Compliance Label
After July 1, 2000 certain Briggs & Stratton engines will be certified to meet the United States Environmental Protection
Agency (USEPA) Phase 2 emission standards. For Phase 2 certified engines, the Emissions Compliance Period referred
to on the Emissions Compliance label indicates the number of operating hours for which the engine has been shown to
meet Federal emission requirements. For engines less than 225 cc displacement, Category C = 125 hours, B = 250 hours
and A = 500 hours. For engines of 225 cc or more, Category C = 250 hours, B = 500 hours and A = 1000 hours.
The displacement of Model Series
290000 and 300000 engines is 480 cc,
350000 engines is 570 cc, and 380000
engines is 627 cc.

TYPE OF OIL TO USE
*
CAUTION: Air cooled engines run hotter than
automotive engines. The use of non-synthetic
multi-viscosity oils (5W-30, 10W-30, etc.) in
temperatures above 40° F (4° C) will result in higher
than normal oil consumption. When using a
multi-viscosity oil, check oil level more frequently.
** CAUTION: SAE 30 oil, if used below 40° F (4° C), will
result in hard starting and possible engine bore
damage due to inadequate lubrication.
• Use a high quality detergent oil classified “For Service
SF, SG, SH, SJ” or higher, such as Briggs & Stratton
30W, Part Number 100005 (20 oz) or 100028 (48 oz).
• Do not use special additives.
• Choose a viscosity according to the table opposite.
Note: Synthetic oil meeting ILSAC GF-2, API
certification mark and API service symbol
(shown at left) with “SJ/CF ENERGY CONSERVING” or higher, is an acceptable oil at all
temperatures. Use of synthetic oil does not
alter required oil change intervals.
CHECKING AND ADDING OIL
• Check oil level before starting the engine.
• Check level daily, or after every eight (8) hours.
• Keep oil level at FULL.
• Do not overfill.
Oil filling procedure: first add 1 quart (32 ounces or 1 liter). Start and run engine at idle for 30 seconds. Shut engine off and
wait 30 seconds. Then add more oil slowly to bring level to Full mark on dipstick.

[1] To prevent gum from forming in fuel system or on
essential carburetor parts:
a) if fuel tank contains oxygenated or reformulated
gasoline (gasoline blended with an alcohol or an
ether), run engine until it stops from lack of fuel, or b) if
fuel tank contains gasoline, either run engine until it
stops from lack of fuel, or add a gasoline additive to the
gas in the tank. (See parts list. Single – use pouches of
gas additive are available from your service dealer.) If
you use a gas additive, run the engine for several
minutes to circulate the additive through the carburetor.
Then, engine and fuel can be stored up to 24 months.

About your engine warranty: (see next page for statement of LIMITED WARRANTY).
Briggs & Stratton welcomes warranty repair and apologizes
to you for being inconvenienced. Any Authorized Service
Dealer may perform warranty repairs. Most warranty repairs
are handled routinely, but sometimes requests for warranty
service may not be appropriate. For example, warranty would
not apply if engine damage occurred because of misuse, lack
of routine maintenance, shipping, handling, warehousing or
improper installation. Similarly, warranty is void if the serial
number of the engine has been removed or the engine has
been altered or modified.
4. Parts which are scored or broken because an engine was
operated with insufficient or contaminated lubricating oil,
or an incorrect grade of lubricating oil (check oil level daily
or after every 8 hours of operation. Refill when necessary
and change at recommended intervals.) OIL GARD
may not shut down running engine. Engine damage may
occur if oil level is not properly maintained. Read Operating & Maintenance Instructions.
5. Repair or adjustment of associated parts or assemblies
such as clutches, transmissions, remote controls, etc.,
which are not manufactured by Briggs & Stratton.
6. Damage or wear to parts caused by dirt, which entered
the engine because of improper air cleaner maintenance,
re-assembly, or use of a non-original air cleaner element
or cartridge. (At recommended intervals, clean and re-oil
the Oil-Foam element or the foam pre-cleaner, and replace the cartridge.) Read Operating & Maintenance
Instructions.
7. Parts damaged by overspeeding, or overheating caused
by grass, debris, or dirt, which plugs or clogs the cooling
fins, or flywheel area, or damage caused by operating the
engine in a confined area without sufficient ventilation.
(Clean fins on the cylinder, cylinder head and flywheel at
recommended intervals.) Read Operating & Maintenance
Instructions.
8. Engine or equipment parts broken by excessive vibration
caused by a loose engine mounting, loose cutter blades,
unbalanced blades or loose or unbalanced impellers, improper attachment of equipment to engine crankshaft,
overspeeding or other abuse in operation.
9. A bent or broken crankshaft, caused by striking a solid object with the cutter blade of a rotary lawn mower, or excessive v-belt tightness.
10. Routine tune-up or adjustment of the engine.
11. Engine or engine component failure, i.e., combustion
If a customer differs with the decision of the Service Dealer, an
investigation will be made to determine whether the warranty
applies. Ask the Service Dealer to submit all supporting facts to
its Distributor or the Factory for review. If the Distributor or the
Factory decides that the claim is justified, the customer will be
fully reimbursed for those items that are defective. To avoid
misunderstanding which might occur between the customer
and the Dealer, listed below are some of the causes of engine
failure that the warranty does not cover.
Normal wear:
Engines, like all mechanical devices, need periodic parts service and replacement to perform well. Warranty will not cover
repair when normal use has exhausted the life of a part or an
engine.
Improper maintenance:
The life of an engine depends upon the conditions under
which it operates, and the care it receives. Some applications,
such as tillers, pumps and rotary mowers, are very often used
in dusty or dirty conditions, which can cause what appears to
be premature wear. Such wear, when caused by dirt, dust,
spark plug cleaning grit, or other abrasive material that has
entered the engine because of improper maintenance, is not
covered by warranty.
chamber, valves, valve seats, valve guides, or burned
starter motor windings, caused by the use of alternate
fuels such as, liquified petroleum, natural gas, altered
gasolines, etc.
This warranty covers engine related defective material
and/or workmanship only, and not replacement or refund
of the equipment to which the engine may be mounted.
Nor does the warranty extend to repairs required because of:
Warranty is available only through service dealers which
have been authorized by Briggs & Stratton Corporation.
1. PROBLEMS CAUSED BY PARTS THAT ARE NOT
ORIGINAL BRIGGS & STRATTON PARTS.
2. Equipment controls or installations that prevent starting,
cause unsatisfactory engine performance, or shorten engine life. (Contact equipment manufacturer.)
You may locate your nearest Authorized Briggs & Stratton
Service Dealer in our dealer locator map at
www.briggsandstratton.com.
3. Leaking carburetors, clogged fuel pipes, sticking valves,
or other damage, caused by using contaminated or stale
fuel. (Use clean, fresh, lead-free gasoline and Briggs &
Stratton gasoline stabilizer, Part No. 5041.)
Your nearest Authorized Service Dealer is also listed in
the “Yellow Pages” of your telephone directory under
