Question and Answers

Q:

can you show what the inside of the gas tank fuel line attachments look like

A:

Without a model number, I can only give you general information on a fuel tank.

We don't have images of the lines inside a fuel tank. The return line is normally the larger line and it protrudes into the fuel tank approximately 1-1 1/2 inches.

The fuel supply line normally has a filter (fuel pickup) attached to it. The fuel pickup is heavy enough so that it will fall to the lowest portion of the fuel tank when the engine is operated sideways or upside down. This line is normally the smaller fuel line and must be long enough to allow the fuel pickup to move to the lowest part of the tank. This extra length allows the fuel pick up to be installed on the supply line outside of the fuel tank.

If you have more questions, send another email and include the model number of the product. We will be glad to help.

Q:

I need to know how to set the valves on a 17 hp Briggs engine.

A:

To adjust the valves on the engine, remove the 4 screws in the valve cover and the valve cover. Remove the spark plug from the engine.

Put a clean small screwdriver into the spark plug opening so you can tell when the piston is at the top of the stroke.

Rotate the flywheel until the piston is at top dead center and neither valve has any pressure on them. The push rods will be loose in the rocker arm. If one push rod has pressure on it, rotate the engine again and when it comes back to the top of the stroke neither push rod should have any pressure.

Use a feeler gauge to measure the clearance between the end of the push rod and the rocker arm.

The clearance on the intake valve should be .003. - 005 inches. The clearance on the exhaust valve should be .005-.007 inches.

If adjustment is required, loosen the allen set screw in the center of the nut on the rocker arm and adjust the nut to obtain the proper clearance.

The intake push rod is aluminum, and the exhaust push rod is steel. This will help you determine which valve is which.

While you are turning the engine over with the spark plug removed, be sure both valves are opening and closing. Be sure the ignition module is near the magnet on the flywheel when the valves are both closed. You might have a valve sticking causing the push rod to bend or break.
