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).
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.

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.

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
