Thank you for your question.



I will be happy to assist you. I looked up the model number you submitted. According to the parts list this model has a fuel solenoid installed on the bottom of the carburetor. The engine has the highest unregulated charging system on it. I checked in the manual for voltage output. It only gives the minimum output. 15.9 volts should be ok. I know my battery charger charges at 17 volts and I have never had a problem with any of my batteries.

I hope this is helpful. Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Thank you for using Manage my life. Mark

Thanks for the help. Do I understand correctly that there is no regulator on the charging system?

Perhaps I'm over thinking the set up in the wiring and charging system on this particular tractor. I have a similar situation with a tractor I own. My charging system is charging at 16.2 volts but it just seems high to me. I have putzed with tractors off and on and they all seemed to have some sort of regulator or resistor in the mix somewhere. I would really appreciate it if you would be able to shed some light on this for me. My tractor also doesn't have a regulator, where you think it would anyway. My tractor is a (under the seat) 247.289010 and (motor) 31c707 1347 B2. Is the 16.2 volts in a safe range? I just want to make sure because I would hate to cook anything. Its a great running tractor otherwise. Thanks a million for your time.

Q:

smoking with low power 247.289010

A:

Thanks for the inquiry and for being a valued member.

I am sorry to hear of the issue you’re having with the tractor. I know how frustrating that is.

Black smoke is normally caused by too much fuel in relation to the amount of air being burned by the engine. Considering everything you’ve replaced so far, this symptom could very well be caused by the intake valve being out of adjustment. I would recommend performing a valve adjustment on both intake and exhaust valves and see if that helps. On this Briggs engine, the intake should be set between .003”-.005”, and the exhaust should be set between .005”-.007”. There are some great YouTube videos on adjusting the valve clearances if you’ve never done this type of maintenance before.

I hope this helps and thanks for using SearsPartsDirect.com. We appreciate your business.

Q:

low power at full throttle and black smoke 247.289010

A:

Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com. I will be more than happy to assist you. I can understand any frustration you may have experienced with regards to your unit. Let’s see what we can do for you.

Compression is one of the main components hat are need to run a combustion engine. If you’re loosing compression the mower will run rough like described. It could be a couple different things causing this, but cause of the black smoke I would suggest the piston rings. If these are bad your losing compression plus oil is getting in and getting burned. 

Hope this information has helped you. If you are not comfortable doing this repair you can click here to schedule a technician or call toll free 1-800-469-4663. Again, thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect.com.
