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 horsepower). 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. Fire Explosion Toxic Fumes Kickback Moving Parts Hot Surface GB Safety Precautions BEFORE OPERATING ENGINE • Read entire Operating & Maintenance Instructions AND the instructions for the equipment this engine powers.* • Failure to follow instructions could result in serious injury or death. * Briggs & Stratton does not necessarily know what equipment this engine will power. For that reason, you should carefully read and understand the operating instructions for the equipment on which your engine is placed. THE OPERATING & MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS CONTAIN SAFETY INFORMATION TO • Make you aware of hazards associated with engines • Inform you of the risk of injury associated with those hazards, and • Tell you how to avoid or reduce the risk of injury. The safety alert symbol is used to identify safety information about hazards that can result in personal injury. A signal word (DANGER, WARNING, or CAUTION) is used with the alert symbol to indicate the likelihood and the potential severity of injury. In addition, a hazard symbol may be used to represent the type of hazard. Shock International Symbols and Meanings DANGER indicates a hazard which, if not avoided, will result in death or serious injury. WARNING indicates a hazard which, if not avoided, could result in death or serious injury. CAUTION indicates a hazard which, if not avoided, might result in minor or moderate injury.

WARNING Read Owner’s Manual Oil Fuel 1 Fuel Shutoff The engine exhaust from this product contains chemicals known to the State of California to cause cancer, birth defects, or other reproductive harm. GB WARNING WARNING WARNING Gasoline and its vapors are extremely flammable and explosive. Engines give off carbon monoxide, an odorless, colorless, poison gas. Running engines produce heat. Engine parts, especially muffler, become extremely hot. Fire or explosion can cause severe burns or death. Breathing carbon monoxide can cause nausea, fainting or death. Severe thermal burns can occur on contact. WHEN ADDING FUEL • Turn engine OFF and let engine cool at least 2 minutes before removing gas cap. • Fill fuel tank outdoors or in well-ventilated area. • Do not overfill fuel tank. Fill tank to approximately 1 inch below lowest portion of neck to allow for • Start and run engine outdoors. • Do not start or run engine in enclosed area, even if doors or windows are open. fuel expansion. • Keep gasoline away from sparks, open flames, pilot lights, heat, and other ignition sources. • Check fuel lines, tank, cap, and fittings frequently for cracks or leaks. Replace if necessary. WARNING WHEN STARTING ENGINE • Make sure spark plug, muffler, fuel cap and air cleaner are in place. • Do not crank engine with spark plug removed. • If fuel spills, wait until it evaporates before starting engine. • If engine floods, set choke to OPEN/RUN position, place throttle in FAST and crank until engine starts. WHEN OPERATING EQUIPMENT • Do not tip engine or equipment at angle which causes gasoline to spill. • Do not choke carburetor to stop engine. WHEN TRANSPORTING EQUIPMENT • Transport with fuel tank EMPTY or with fuel shut-off valve OFF. WHEN STORING GASOLINE OR EQUIPMENT WITH FUEL IN TANK Combustible debris, such as leaves, grass, brush, etc. can catch fire. • 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. Unintentional sparking can result in fire or electric shock. Unintentional start-up can result in entanglement, traumatic amputation, or laceration. WARNING BEFORE PERFORMING ADJUSTMENTS OR REPAIRS • Disconnect spark plug wire and keep it away from spark plug. • Disconnect battery at negative terminal (only engines with electric start). WHEN TESTING FOR SPARK • Use approved spark plug tester. • Do not check for spark with spark plug removed. • Store away from furnaces, stoves, water heaters or other appliances that have pilot light or other ignition source because they can ignite gasoline vapors. Rotating parts can contact or entangle hands, feet, hair, clothing, or accessories. Traumatic amputation or severe laceration can result. • • • • Operate equipment with guards in place. Keep hands and feet away from rotating parts. Tie up long hair and remove jewelry. Do not wear loose-fitting clothing, dangling drawstrings or items that could become caught. WARNING WARNING Starting engine creates sparking. Rapid retraction of starter cord (kickback) will pull hand and arm toward engine faster than you can let go. Sparking can ignite nearby flammable gases. Broken bones, fractures, bruises or sprains could result. Explosion and fire could result. • If there is natural or LP gas leakage in area, do not start engine. • Do not use pressurized starting fluids because vapors are flammable. • When starting engine, pull cord slowly until resistance is felt, then pull rapidly. • Remove all external equipment/engine loads before starting engine. • Direct coupled equipment components such as, but not limited to, blades, impellors, pulleys, sprockets, etc., must be securely attached. 2 GB Oil Recommendations (see fig. ) Engine shipped from Briggs & Stratton without oil. Before starting engine, fill with oil. Do not over-fill. Use a high quality detergent oil classified For Service SF, SG, SH, SJ" or higher such as Briggs & Stratton 30W, Part Number 100005. Use no special additives with recommended oils. Do not mix oil with gasoline. Choose the SAE viscosity grade of oil from this chart that matches the starting temperature anticipated before the next oil change. 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. * 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. ** SAE 30 oil, if used below 40° F (4° C), will result in hard starting and possible engine bore damage due to inadequate lubrication. Check oil level. (Oil capacity is about 20 oz. or 0.6 liter.) Place engine level and clean around oil fill . 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. Tighten dipstick firmly before starting engine. Do not overfill. Overfilling with oil may cause: 1. Smoking, 2. Hard starting, 3. Spark plug fouling, 4. Oil saturation of air filter Fuel Recommendations Use clean, fresh, lead-free, regular gasoline with a minimum of 77 octane. Leaded gasoline may be used if it is commercially available and if unleaded is unavailable. Purchase fuel in quantity that can be used within 30 days. See Storage. 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. This engine is certified to operate on gasoline. Exhaust Emission Control System: EM (Engine Modifications). Do not use gasoline which contains Methanol. Do not mix oil with gasoline. For engine protection, we recommend using Briggs & Stratton Fuel Stabilizer available from an Authorized Briggs & Stratton Service Dealer. Maintenance (see figs. ) Check fuel level. Before refueling, allow engine to cool 2 minutes. Also, see Maintenance Schedule, next page. Follow the hourly or calendar intervals, whichever occur first. More frequent service is required when operating in adverse conditions. Clean around fuel fill before removing cap to refuel. Fill tank to approximately 1 inch below lowest portion of neck to allow for fuel expansion. Be careful not to overfill. To prevent accidental starting, remove spark plug wire and ground it before servicing. Starting (see fig. ) ALWAYS KEEP HANDS AND FEET CLEAR OF EQUIPMENT MOVING PARTS. Do not use a pressurized starting fluid. Vapors are flammable. Start, store and fuel equipment in level position. Check oil level. Start engine first time 1. Move throttle control to FAST position. 2. Push primer bulb firmly 5 times. Close safety brake control handle , if equipped. Grasp rope handle and pull slowly until resistance is felt. Then pull cord rapidly to overcome compression, prevent kickback and start engine. Repeat if necessary. When engine starts, operate in FAST position. 3. If engine does not start after 3 pulls, push primer bulb 3 times and pull starter again. Start engine thereafter 1. Move throttle control to FAST position. 2. Push primer bulb firmly 3 times. Close safety brake control handle , if equipped. Grasp rope handle and pull slowly until resistance is felt. Then pull cord rapidly to overcome compression, prevent kickback and start engine. Repeat if necessary. When engine starts, operate in FAST position. Note: If engine stopped because it ran out of fuel, refuel engine and push primer bulb 3 times. Priming is usually unnecessary when restarting a warm engine. However, cool weather may require priming to be repeated. Stopping (see fig. ) Release safety brake control handle OR move throttle control to STOP. 3 CAUTION:If engine must be tipped to transport equipment or to inspect or remove grass, keep spark plug side of engine up. Transporting or tipping engine spark plug down may cause: 1. Smoking, 2. Hard starting, 3. Spark plug fouling, 4. Oil saturation of air filter. Oil service (see fig. ) Check oil level regularly. Be sure correct oil level is maintained. Check every 5 hours or daily, before starting engine. See oil filling procedure, Oil Recommendations. Change oil. Change oil after first 5 hours of operation. Change oil while engine is warm. Refill with new oil of recommended SAE viscosity grade. (see fig. ) Before tipping engine or equipment to drain oil, drain fuel from tank by running engine until fuel tank is empty. If draining oil from top of engine, keep spark plug side up. By removing drain plug with a ratchet and square extension , oil can be drained from engine bottom. Air cleaner service (see fig. ) Replace Oil-Foam® element if very dirty or damaged. • Remove screw. • Carefully remove air cleaner to prevent debris from falling into carburetor. • Take air cleaner apart and clean all parts. Wash Oil-Foam® element in liquid detergent and water. Squeeze dry in a clean cloth. Saturate Oil-Foam® element in engine oil and squeeze in a clean cloth to remove excess oil. • Install Oil-Foam® element and cup, if equipped, in body. Note: On Style 2 air cleaner , install element so lip extends over edge of body to form protective seal when cover is assembled. • Install air cleaner securely on carburetor with screw. GB Maintenance Cont’d Maintenance Schedule Spark plug service (see fig. ) DO NOT check for spark with spark plug removed. Use only Briggs & Stratton Spark Tester , to check for spark. DO NOT crank engine with spark plug removed. If engine is flooded, place throttle in FAST and crank until engine starts. Follow the hourly or calendar intervals, whichever occur first.

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.
