Do not attempt to install this engine if you do not have the
appropriate tools and knowledge of small engine installation
procedures. Use only Briggs & Stratton parts. Contact your
Authorized Service Dealer for assistance.
Do not modify the engine in any way without Briggs & Stratton
factory approval. Any such modification is at the owner’s sole
risk.
If the exhaust system on the old engine was supplied by the
equipment manufacturer, you must transfer the exhaust
system and related components (original muffler and related
pipes, brackets, clamps, and shields) to the new engine. All
components must be in good condition.
WARNING
Install muffler (and muffler deflector if used) so outlet points
away from operator, fuel tank,

heat will not damage or deform
engine and components.

are properly assembled and do
not leak. Replacement parts
must be the same model as the
original.
WARNING
Ensure all wiring, including safety switches and engine shut-off
components are completely
installed and functioning properly.
