This book has been especially prepared to cover the Engine Models
listed on the cover and Is published for the Information and guidance
of all concerned.
THERE IS A RIGHT WAT TO OPERATE THIS ENGINE. THIS
BOOK TELLS TOU HOW.
Guessing how to run It may cause failure to receive the maximum In
performance and dependable service originally built Into this engine. Each
engine has been carefully tested and adjusted at the factory before pack-
ing for shipment, and If correctly operated will perform efficiently and
This book Is divided Into four sections, namely:
1. GENERAL, contains information that you should know regard-
ing the principal specifications and design of the engine.
2. OPERATOR'S SECTION, contains Instructions necessary for
starting and operating the engine.
X. MAINTENANCE SECTION, consists of instructions pertaining
to actual repairs such as are conducted in the repair shop.
4. PARTS SECTION, Includes exploded views of the various engine
assemblies and component parts and parts list.
1. Exhaust gases contain carbon monoxide which Is odorless and a deadly
poison. Proper care must be taken to provide efficient ventilation,
2. Fill crankcase and nlr cleaner with proper oil before starting engine.
See that oil level Is maintained.
3. Do not fill the gasoline tank while the engine Is running. Avoid spilling
gasoline on a hot engine — this may cause an explosion and serious Injury.
4. Your Brlggs & Stratton engine Is air cooled. The fan action of the vaned
flywheel forces cooling nlr between the flns of the cylinder and cylinder
head which keeps the engine at Its proper operating temperature.
Lack of air due to clogging of blower screen, flywheel vanes, or cylinder
and cylinder head flns causes overhenting which may result in serious
damage such as warped or cracked cylinder head, Ignition failure, burnt
valves, sticking rings, scored piston, bearing failures, etc.
When the air entering the cooling system carries a considerable amount
of foreign matter such as grass or heavy dirt, the cooling system can be-
come restricted or clogged In a very short time and regular cleaning Is
It Is recommended that frequent Inspection be made during use to
determine how often cleaning Is necessnry. If this Is done, the air cleaner
serviced properly, and the engine operated on a good grade of gasoline
and oil, you may expect trouble-free performance Indefinitely. The life of
your engine Is In direct ratio to the care It receives.
This engine is a single cylinder, L-Head air-cooled type; bore 2" and
stroke 1%"- It is rated at:
.85 H.P. at 2200 R.P.M.
1.0 H.P. at 2700 R.P.M.
1.1 H.P. at 3200 R.P.M.
(The horsepower ratings listed above are established by standard
I.C.B.I. procedures. For practical operation, the horsepower loading should
not exceed 85 per cent of these ratings. Engine power will decrease 3 per
cent for each 1,000 feet above sea level, and 1 per cent for each 10 degrees
above 60 degrees P.)
It is of the same basic 4-cycle design used in automobiles, aircraft,
trucks, and tractors. As the name indicates, there are four strokes to one
complete power cycle:
the: 4-stroke cycles
Plate No. 1
COMPRESSION STROKE POWER STROKE
a. INTAKE STROKE: The piston goes down, creating a vacuum
in the cylinder which draws gas through open intake valve
into the space above the piston.
b. COMPRESSION STROKE: The piston comes up with both
valves closed, highly compressing the gas into the space left
between the top of the piston and cylinder head.
e. POWER STROKE: At this point the magneto sends high
tension current to the spark plug, firing or exploding the com-
pressed gas and driving the piston down.
d. EXHAUST STROKE: Exhaust valve opens and the upward
stroke of the piston forces out all of the burnt gases, thus
completing the power cycle.
Ignition is supplied by a high tension magneto built into the flywheel.
The spark plug is 14mm.
Lubrication is supplied by a splash system which furnishes positive
lubrication to all moving parts. Oil reservoir capacity is 1 pint.
The fuel tank holds one quart. The carburetor is suction type.
The governor is adjustable pneumatic type.
Two valves are employed: one Intake and one Exhaust.
The piston and connecting rod are made of aluminum alloy. Crankshaft
is a drop forging, counterweighted to reduce vibration.
This engine has been substantially built. It is made of high grade
materials by skilled workmen, in a factory fully equipped with the most
modern machinery. Before it was shipped, it received many tests and
STARTING AND OPERATING INSTRUCTIONS
1. PREPARATION FOR USE.
a. Before starting the engine, fill the crank-
case with Mobiloil or other high grade
oil not heavier than S. A. E. No. 20 for
operating the engine in temperatures of
32* F. or above. For temperatures below
32° F. use Mobiloil S. A. E. No. 10W or other
high grade oil.
The oil filler cap is located at the end of
engine base. To open, tilt cap In direction
of arrow on cap so "catch" Is vertical, as
shown in inset In plate below. In this posi-
tion cap will stay open. With the engine
standing level pour oil in opening until it
rises to the top of filler cap opening. The
crankcase holds one pint. To close, roll cap
with thumb and it will snap into place.
When closed be sure cap is flat as shown In
b. Fill air cleaner with same oil as used
In the crankcase and fill to the Indicated
oil level. Clean out and refill every 26
hours. Change oil hourly under dusty oper-
e. Fill the fuel tank with a good grade of
regular, clean, fresh gasoline such as Mobil-
gas. DO NOT MIX OIL, WITH GASOLINE.
2. HOW TO START ROPE STARTER.
a. Completely close carburetor choke by
pushing choke lever In (see Plate No. 2).
b. Wind the starter rope around the starter
pulley with the knot in the pulley notch.
Pull the rope with a quick steady pull to
spin the magneto flywheel with choke fully
closed to prime the engine. Then open
choke about one-eighth and repeat opera-
Plate N». I
e. After the engine warms up, gradually
open choke lever by pulling; out until en-
gine runs smoothly with the choke wide
open. (A warm engine does not require as
much choking as a cold one.)
RETRIEVABLE STARTER. Pull fast on
rope and return slowly. Keep firm grip on
starter ball until fully returned. Operate
choke as in paragraph a and c.
8. FAILURE OP THE ENGINE TO START.
Cold weather causes the oil in the crank-
case to become thick and the gasoline less
volatile. Should you experience trouble in
starting after spinning the engine several
times with the choke closed, be sure to
check the spark plug — see that it is clean
and the gap set to .026". If the engine
fails to start after a reasonable number of
trials, do not make any adjustments until
you have studied the Engine Trouble Chart
on following page.
4. HOW TO STOP.
a. Press the stop switch meunted on the
cylinder head against the end of the spark
plug. Hold until engine stops firing.
5. USE CLEAN GASOLINE. A good grade
of regular gasoline Is recommended. Be
sure the vent hole In the top of the fuel
tank cap is open, for air must enter the
tank to allow the gasoline to flow to the
«. DO NOT MIX OIL WITH GASOLINE!.
This engine is provided with an efficient
splash system which throws oil to all mov-
ing Internal engine parts.
7. USE THE RIGHT KIND OF OIL. (See
8. ADD OIL REGULARLY.
CRANKCASE: After each 5 HOURS of oper-
ation, fill to the top level of the oil filler cap.
9. CHANGE OIL FREQUENTLY. After
each twenty-live houra of engine operation
the oil should be completely drained from
the crankcase. Do not remove engine from
its mounting base. Remove the oil drain
plug, located at end of engine base (see
Plate No. 2), and let the oil flow into a
pan or other receptacle. Do not flimli oat
with keraaene. Replace the drain plug, re-
fill with fresh oil, and close the filler cap.
10. KEEP THE ENGINE CLEAN. It will
pay you to keep the engine clean both in-
side and outside. See that no dirt or water
enters engine when filling with oil or gas-
oline. As a precautionary measure always
wipe off the fuel cap and oil filler plug, as
well as around them before refilling. Dirt
In the engine or fuel tank will cause trou-
ble and even serious damage. Also be sure
to remove any dirt or grass that may ac-
cumulate in the flywheel housing or be-
tween cylinder flns.
Engines stored any length of time should be completely drained of
fuel to prevent gum deposits forming on essential parts such as the
carburetor and tank.
Such deposits may affect the operation of the engine when again
used. Therefore, it is Important that the following instructions be ad-
hered to before storing the engine:
a. Remove tank and carburetor from unit and drain completely.
b. Replace tank and carburetor.
c. Remove spark plug, pour one ounce of S.A.E. No. 20 oil into
cylinder and crank slowly to spread oil. Replace spark plug.

REPAIR PAJMP* INFORMATION
How to Fi»* Parts You Need M
Unless you have a thorough knowledge of Internal combustion engines and
proper tools, we do not recommend that you attempt to make major engine re-
pairs. This does not mean that you shouldn't make necessary adjustments and
simple repairs, but in case of emergency we advise you to get in touch with our
nearest service organization. See page 29.
DISASSEMBLING THE ENGINE
11. To facilitate the complete disassembly
for major repairs, we suggest the following

THE FUEL SYSTEM
12. AVOID GUMMY GASOLINE. If you
experience trouble with a gummy, sticky
substance with a sharp obnoxious odor,
change to fresh gasoline. This gum comes
from the gasoline and clogs the carburetor,
fuel tank, etc.
15. YOU CAN AVOID MOST TROUBLE
FROM GUM IF YOU WIL.Ii KEEP THE
FUEL TANK FULL WHEN NOT USING
THE ENGINE. If you use It only occa-
sionally, drain tank completely and refill
when the engine is used again. The reason
for this is that evaporation of gasoline
causes most gum deposits.
14. TO CLEAN FUEL TANK CAP. Be sure
that the small vent hole In the fuel tank
cap is not clogged up, for air must enter
the tank to allow the gasoline to flow to
the carburetor. Test by blowing through
top of cap.
16. CORRECT USE OF THE CHOKE. The
correct carburetor setting (see Paragraph
No. 17) gives the engine the best mixture
to run on when it is hot. For starting, it
Is necessary to choke the carburetor to get
a rich mixture, because cold gasoline does
not vaporize readily. A warm or hot en-
gine requires very little choking. Until you
become familiar with your engine, however,
you may make the mistake of not choking
the carburetor enough or you may choke
It too much. If engine falls to start after
cranking three or four times with the choke
closed, try cranking two or three times
with the choke part way open and then all
the way open.
10. TO PRIME THE ENGINE. The engine
may fall to start for the reason that either
the carburetor is incorrectly adjusted or
dirty, or you are out of gasoline. To de-
termine the cause, prime the engine by re-
moving the spark plug and pour a half tea-
spoonful of gasoline into the spark plug
opening. Replace the spark plug and crank
the engine. If it fires for three or four
revolutions and stops, the difficulty Is defi-
nitely In the fuel system. If engine will not
fire at all, check the ignition system.
17. TO ADJUST THE CARBURETOR. The
carburetor on this engine is of the suction
type. The gasoline supply Is regulated by
a needle valve (see Plate 3). The throt-
tle is automatically controlled by the gov-
ernor. (See paragraph 20.)
a. To adjust the carburetor, completely
close needle valve by turning to right or
clockwise as far as possible. Do not screw
up too tight or use force when closing
needle valve, or the seat, or taper of needle
valve may be damaged.
b. From closed position, open needle valve
about one complete turn.
c. After the engine has been started and
warmed up with the choke wide open, make
final adjustment by turning the needle valve
to the point at which engine operates most

smoothly with full load. This setting will
also take care of starting with use of the
d. When starting cold engine, If it Is nec-
essary to keep choke partially closed sev-
eral minutes before engine runs smoothly,
carburetor setting is too lean and needle
valve should be opened a notch or two —
turn to left. If carburetor throttle acts
sluggish or engine does not govern smooth-
ly, it is usually caused by a dirty or gummy
throttle. For governor adjustments see
paragraphs 20 and 21.
18. TO REMOVE CARBURETOR.
a. Remove air cleaner.
b. Loosen two carburetor mounting screws.
c. Unhook link at governor blade.
19 TO REPLACE CARBURETOR.
Reverse the operations as performed above.
CAUTION: Be sure to replace the carbu-
retor gasket. The throttle link must oper-
ate freely In the governor arm blade and
carburetor throttle arm.
20. CORRECT ENGINE SPEED. The speed
of this engine is automatically maintained
under varying loads by a built-in governor.
Recommended operating speed is 2200 to
1200 R.P.M. As different types of equip-
ment require various operating speeds for
the greatest efficiency, it is suggested that
you follow the recommendations of the
manufacturer of the complete unit which
the engine powers.
21. GOVERNOR SPEED ADJUSTMENT.
The governor was carefully adjusted at the
factory to maintain normal speed under
load. Do not re-adjust unless absolutely
necessary. A speed adjusting screw Is lo-
cated on carburetor. (See Plate No. 3.)
a. To increase engine speed, turn screw
b. To decrease engine speed, turn screw

23. TO CHECK AIR VANE GOVERNOR
BLADE CLEARANCE. This type of gov-
ernor has but few parts and seldom do
they need replacement because of wear. It
U Important, however, that the vane has
proper clearance so it can operate freely.
To check and adjust, proceed as follows:
a. Remove blower case.
b. Turn carburetor throttle lever so the
throttle is in wide open position This will
enable you to see if the vane clears the
armature core and screws. (See Plate No.
i, Fig. A.)
«. If It does not clear, bend vane bracket

THE IGNITION SYSTEM
23. THE IGNITION SYSTEM. The spark Is
produced by a high tension magneto con-
sisting of armature, condenser, contact
points, and rotating magnets cast in a fly-
wheel. The ignition current is sent Into
the engine cylinder through the ignition
cable and spark plug. The magneto Itself
as well as the cable and spark plug must
all be in proper condition and adjustment
to insure a good hot spark.
24. TO CHECK FOR SPARK.
a. Remove the ignition cable from the plug.
Remove plug. Hold the ignition cable ter-
minal about %» from any metal part of
cylinder head. (See Plate No. 6.)
b. Turn engine and if spark jumps this gap
the entire Ignition system with the excep-
tion of the spark plug Is O. K.

Plate No. T
c. If no spark develops, check the cable
(see Paragraph 26), and refer to magneto
adjustments explained in Paragraphs 27 to
25. SPARK PLUG ADJUSTMENT. The spark
plug should be cleaned and the gap reset
to .026' after each 100 hours of operation.
(See Plate No. 7.) Always keep a fresh plug
on hand. Use Champion No. J-8 (14mm)
spark plug or Its exact equivalent. When
Inserting plug place a little graphite grease
on the threads.
26. IGNITION CABIiB. Insulation must not
be broken or soaked with oil or water, or
grounded In any way where it touches the
engine as this will Interfere with good
ignition. To check the cable all the way
to the magneto it is necessary to remove
blower case. Be sure that the cable is
securely fastened to the secondary terminal
of the coil. (See Plate No. 11.)
27. TO REMOVE FLIWHBEU (See Plate
No. 8.) The flywheel is securely mounted
to the crankshaft by means of a taper fit,
a soft key, left hand threaded nut and
spring washer. To remove proceed as fol-
ROPE STARTER ENGINES.

explained in above paragraph, proceed as
a. Remove magneto point dust cover. It
Is not necessary to remove the carburetor
unless you have already done so.
b. Remove four magneto plate mounting
30. TO REP1ACE MAGNETO ASSEMBLY.
Use same gaskets between plate and crank-
case, or if damaged, use one of the follow-
ing new gaskets for proper end play:
* Part No. 67597 — .005*
Part No. 67607— .009*
Part No. 67307— .015*
The end play should be .002" to .008* be-
tween magneto bearing and crankshaft

31. MAGNETO TIMING. The magneto as-
sembly is always correctly timed with the
engine when the flywheel Is assembled to
the tapered crankshaft with a key and
securely held In place with left hand
threaded nut. Do not attempt to change
the timing by relocating any parts or filing
crankshaft timing flat. Always use soft
key Part No. 81760. If steel key Is used
and flywheel becomes loose It will damage
the keyway In the crankshaft.

obtained tighten lock screw securely. If
either or both points become badly pitted
or burned, replace with complete new Con-
tact Point Assembly, Part No. 29667.
33. TO REPLACE CONDENSER. A leaky
or weak condenser may cause the engine
to start hard, to sputter and misfire under
load. If engine misfires after checking the
fuel line, carburetor, spark plug, and con-
tact points, install a new condenser. Part
No. 29861. Both the condenser lead and
armature lead must be fastened to contact
bracket. (See Plate No. 11.) Be sure to push
condenser lead down between condenser and
hub of magneto plate to avoid rubbing
against the flywheel.
If after new condenser has been installed
the ignition system still does not deliver
a satisfactory spark, we recommend send-
ing the complete magneto unit including
flywheel to our nearest service organization.
34. TO REPLACE AND ADJUST ARMA-
a. Remove primary armature lead wire of
coil from brass arm on contact bracket.
b. Remove high tension ignition cable from
secondary terminal in coll.
c. Unscrew four armature mounting screws.
d. Install new armature. Part No. 291617,
and be sure that condenser lead wire and
armature lead wire are fastened to contact
bracket. (See Plate No. 11.)
e. Replace mounting screws, Inserting one
with terminal of ground wire under screw
and draw screws tight.
t. An air gap of .008* to .012* must be
maintained between armature core ends and
flywheel. (See Plate No. 12.) Gap must
only be sufficient to prevent rubbing, but

85. BEARING Oil. SEAI*, A bearing oil
seal Is mounted In the magneto plate. Use
a screw driver to remove but be careful
not to damage the bearing surface. This
seal Is made of a composition and when
worn should be replaced with a new one,
Part No. 89660. To replace, place seal In
the counterbore and force Into position with
a flat steel block as shown in Plate No. 13.

valve cover plate, oil spray shield, and
breather valve. The correct valve clear-
ances are as follows when the engine Is
Exhaust Valve — .016"
Tntake Valve — .008"
Tappet clearance Is adjusted by grinding
required amount from the end of valve
stem. End of stem must be square with
the stem proper.
37. TO REMOVE VAI/VES.
a. Drain oil from crankcase of the engine
If not disassembled.
b. Remove cylinder head. (See Par. 40-41.)
c. Compress valve spring with a screw
driver and pull out valve retainer pins with
long nosed pliers. Tilt cylinder back far
enough to permit the valves to drop with
the stems clearing the spring. Pry the
spring out with a screw driver.
38. VAL.VE SEATING. Unless valves are
properly seated they will cause- Improper
operation due to lack of compression, waste
of oil and gasoline. Therefore, reseating
valves should be done with the utmost
care. They should not be seated by merely
lapping with a grinding compound because
this Is liable to create grooves which wear
deeper with use and cause further trouble.
To reseat valves, grind In same manner as
automobile valves. If valves stick they
may be coated with gum or carbon. To
remove gum use alcohol or acetone. Clean
valve stems thoroughly with wire brush or
emery cloth. Also scrape all carbon from
a. If th§ inspection shows that the valve
stem Is badly worn or the seat is too badly
pitted, we recommend sending the engine
to our nearest service organization.
SO. VALVE TIMING. The timing of the
valves Is taken care of by the meshing of
the cam gear with the gear on the crank-
shaft. These gears are properly meshed
when the mark on the cam gear is in line
with the mark on the crankshaft collar aa

Before assembling new rings to piston be
sure that piston ring grooves are thorough-
ly cleaned and rings move In grooves freely.
BO. PISTON PIN. The piston pin Is a slip
fit In the piston. To remove It from the
piston, first remove the pin locks, then slip
pin out of piston. If pin or hole Is worn,
replace with oversize pin No. 290981.
51. CONNECTING ROD. The connecting
rod Is also made of a special aluminum
alloy which combines strength with light
weight. The connecting rod Is equipped
with a dipper. This Is held in place with
hexagon head cap screws and lock washers.

48. PISTON. (See Plate No. 18.) The piston
in this engine Is made of a special alloy
which Is very light in weight. The lands of
the piston are smaller than the skirt to
allow for greater expansion at the piston
head. This clearance Is to compensate for
the expansion of the aluminum when hot.
When piston Is removed be sure to clean
carbon from head and ring grooves. If pis-
ton Is out of round or scored It should be
replaced with a new one. If an oversize
piston is necessary, we recommend that en-
gine be sent to our nearest service or-
