I see this problem regularly/your cam lobs are wore down /I know it may seem impossible …./trust me iam a master service tec you have cheep engineering to thank for this ….briggs is aware of this problem ./ there not doing anything about it the cams are not made the way they used to be . also the clearance for these engines are 3 to 5 for intake 5 to 7 exhaust just in case you were miss informed.
if yer runnin around in circles then ya must have nascar in ya blood..haha
You can also buy a 350 cca battery from TSC for about $45
The starters on most small engines, such as a briggs or a kohler, are not nearly powerful enough. The small engines have a relatively high compression ratio. Heavier power and ground cables seem to improve starting quite a bit.
I wonder if your starter's not getting weak.
Starter is bad. That is what I think.
I've got another one. When I get time I'll disect them both and fix one of 'em. haha
well heck at least you gave it a try! Thanks for replying!!!!
If that's one of the brigs starters with the plastic gear, the teeth may be getting worn causing it to drag. Take a look at it and see what it looks like. You can replace the gear if it looks bad.
Oh it stopped workin'. Dang, can't buy anything for $12.50 at a yard sale anymore and expect it to last…. hahahaha.
I'd guess the starter……..what happened with the door opener?
I think you have dead spots in the starter, rebuild it or replace it & I'm sure that will fix er up.
I would rebuild the starter and put in new brushes and turn (clean) the commutator.
Probably all in the starter. Either dried out or some of the windings may be burnt up. That whining is not good.
I'd check the timing chain on an F150…

Check out Donnyboy73 You Tube channel. Your valves are not seated correctly. Needs to be done. Seating not gaping.
what happened to the garage door lift???
I got to thinking, you know it starts just like my 55 Ford 6 volt.. hahaha.
Thank You. Yea, it's fun to mess with this junk..
The battery on this one is a new Briggs and Stratton rated for a 38 HP..
Give the starter bushings some lithium grease they`re probably dragging ,My Argo starter done this too easy fix .
Might need a shim or two under the starter…?
