  1. I just replaced my old Flywheel fan with the Briggs & Stratton 796201 Flywheel Fan. This is the replacement part indicated on the B&S website. Now my flywheel fan cover is rubbing on the fan and the fan blades are getting worn down. Anyone have suggestions on what I may have done wrong?

  2. I had to remove the engine cowling and when I put it back on, I apparently didn't get it positioned correctly. The tube where the dipstick goes knocked off several blades of the fan when I tried to start it. There's about 5 left that aren't broken. Do you think it will have to be replaced?
