'OUCH'-B&S Horizontal

gorper99(4a)May 12, 2010

Have been working on a Briggs #137202 on a tiller.Has a problem only running for a few seconds and quitting.Cleaned carb and gas tank.Pulled it over and have bad kickback.Checked keyway and slots in flywheel and crank look like they are aligned ok.What else should I be checking?

A tiller should have a heavy flywheel. Is it possible the engine itself or possibly the flywheel was changed out to a lightweight one?

If you have bad kickback then I vote for a timing problem. Yoiu may want to check both the flywheel and the camshaft alignment carefully.
