OIL PROCEDURE
1. Place engine level and clean around oil fill .
WARNING
2. Remove dipstick , wipe with clean cloth, insert and tighten down again.
Remove dipstick and check oil level. Oil should be at FULL mark . If oil is
required, add slowly. Do not over fill.
−OR−
Running engines produce heat. Engine parts, especially muffler,
become extremely hot.
Severe thermal burns can occur on contact.
Combustible debris, such as leaves, grass, brush, etc. can catch
fire.
3. Remove oil filler plug . Oil should be full to overflowing .
4. Tighten dipstick or oil filler plug firmly before starting engine.
• Allow muffler, engine cylinder and fins to cool before touching.
• Remove accumulated combustibles from muffler area and cylinder
area.
• Install and maintain in working order a spark arrester before using
equipment on forest-covered, grass-covered, brush-covered
unimproved land. The state of California requires this (Section 4442 of
the California Public Resources Code). Other states may have similar
laws. Federal laws apply on federal land.
FUEL RECOMMENDATIONS
Use clean, fresh, lead-free gasoline with a minimum of 85 octane. Leaded
gasoline may be used if it is commercially available and if unleaded is
unavailable.
In U.S.A. leaded gasoline may not be used. Some fuels, called oxygenated or
reformulated gasolines, are gasolines blended with alcohols or ethers. Excessive
amounts of these blends can damage the fuel system or cause performance
problems. If any undesirable operating symptoms occur, use gasoline with a
lower percentage of alcohol or ether.

STORAGE
Engines stored over 30 days need to be protected or drained of fuel to prevent
gum from forming in fuel system or on essential carburetor parts.
For engine protection, we recommend use of Briggs & Stratton Fuel Stabilizer.
Note: If stabilizer is not used or if engine is operating on gasoline containing alcohol,
e.g. gasohol, remove all fuel from tank and run engine until it stops from lack of fuel.
1. Change oil. See Oil service.
2. Remove spark plug and pour about 15 ml (1/2 oz) of engine oil into cylinder.
Replace spark plug and crank slowly to distribute oil.
3. Clean chaff and debris from cylinder and cylinder head fins, under finger guard
and behind muffler.
4. When removing the unit from storage, only use fresh gasoline. Perform
operation checks, see maintenance schedule, before starting engine.

Defects Warranty Coverage
Small off-road engines are warranted relative to
emissions control parts defects for a period of two
years, subject to provisions set forth below. If any
covered part on your engine is defective, the part
will be repaired or replaced by B&S.
Owner’s Warranty Responsibilities
As the small off-road engine owner, you are responsible for the performance of the required
maintenance listed in your Operating and Maintenance Instructions. B&S recommends that you
retain all your receipts covering maintenance on
your small off-road engine, but B&S cannot deny
warranty solely for the lack of receipts or for your
failure to ensure the performance of all scheduled
maintenance.
As the small off-road engine owner, you should
however be aware that B&S may deny you warranty coverage if your small off-road engine or a
part has failed due to abuse, neglect, improper
maintenance or unapproved modifications.
You are responsible for presenting your small offroad engine to an Authorized B&S Service Dealer
as soon as a problem exists. The undisputed warranty repairs should be completed in a reasonable
amount of time, not to exceed 30 days.
If you have any questions regarding your warranty
rights and responsibilities, you should contact a
B&S Service Representative at 1-414-259-5262.
The emissions warranty is a defects warranty.
Defects are judged on normal engine performance. The warranty is not related to an in-use
emissions test.
Briggs & Stratton Emissions Control

2. Length of Coverage
B&S warrants to the initial owner and each subsequent purchaser that the Warranted Parts
shall be free from defects in materials and workmanship which caused the failure of the Warranted Parts for a period of two years from the
date the engine is delivered to a retail purchaser.
3. No Charge
Repair or replacement of any Warranted Part will
be performed at no charge to the owner, including diagnostic labor which leads to the determination that a Warranted Part is defective, if the
diagnostic work is performed at an Authorized
B&S Service Dealer. For emissions warranty
service contact your nearest Authorized B&S
Service Dealer as listed in the “Yellow Pages”
under “Engines, Gasoline,” “Gasoline Engines,”
“Lawn Mowers,” or similar category.
4. Claims and Coverage Exclusions
Warranty claims shall be filed in accordance with
the provisions of the B&S Engine Warranty
Policy. Warranty coverage shall be excluded for
failures of Warranted Parts which are not original
B&S parts or because of abuse, neglect or improper maintenance as set forth in the B&S Engine Warranty Policy. B&S is not liable to cover
failures of Warranted Parts caused by the use of
add-on, non-original, or modified parts.
5. Maintenance
Any Warranted Part which is not scheduled for
replacement as required maintenance or which
is scheduled only for regular inspection to the
effect of “repair or replace as necessary” shall
be warranted as to defects for the warranty period. Any Warranted Part which is scheduled for
replacement as required maintenance shall be
warranted as to defects only for the period of
time up to the first scheduled replacement for
that part. Any replacement part that is equivalent
in performance and durability may be used in
the performance of any maintenance or repairs.
The owner is responsible for the performance of
all required maintenance, as defined in the B&S
Operating and Maintenance Instructions.
6. Consequential Coverage
Coverage hereunder shall extend to the failure
of any engine components caused by the failure
of any Warranted Part still under warranty.

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
engine emission label will indicate certification
information.
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.
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
Category B = 250 hours
Category A = 500 hours
For engines of 225 cc or more displacement.
Category C = 250 hours
Category B = 500 hours
Category A = 1000 hours.
TECHNICAL INFORMATION
Engine Power Rating Information
The gross power rating for individual gas engine models is
labeled in accordance with SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) code J1940 (Small Engine Power & Torque Rating
Procedure), and rating performance has been obtained and
corrected in accordance with SAE J1995 (Revision
2002-05). Torque values are derived at 3060 RPM; horsepower values are derived at 3600 RPM. Actual gross engine
power will be lower and is affected by, among other things,
ambient operating conditions and engine-to-engine variability. Given both the wide array of products on which engines
are placed and the variety of environmental issues applicable to operating the equipment, the gas engine will not develop the rated gross power when used in a given piece of
power equipment (actual on-site" or net power). This difference is due to a variety of factors including, but not limited
to, accessories (air cleaner, exhaust, charging, cooling, carburetor, fuel pump, etc.), application limitations, ambient
operating conditions (temperature, humidity, altitude), and
engine-to-engine variability. Due to manufacturing and capacity limitations, Briggs & Stratton may substitute an engine
of higher rated power for this Series engine.

ABOUT YOUR ENGINE 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.
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
his 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.
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:
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.)
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 Fuel Stabilizer, Part No. 5041.)
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
