About Used Briggs and Stratton Engine
You have enjoyed many fine days with your riding lawn mower, cruising around your half-acre of heaven on halcyon Sunday afternoons. Keep the magic alive with regular maintenance and resuscitate the old girl with a used Briggs & Stratton engine. Briggs & Stratton is an American manufacturer that has been in business for over 100 years. The majority of mower manufacturers use these engines in their machines, including Toro, Snapper, and John Deere. If your riding beauty needs a new engine, it is likely that a Briggs & Stratton engine was the original component. Regular maintenance is important, and an annual tune-up can keep your lawnmower running well for years to come. Briggs & Stratton recommends a four-step tune-up process: change the air filter, change the oil, change the spark plug, and add a gas treatment. If a tune-up does not do the trick, check the carburetor before calling in a mechanic or calling it quits. A fuel supply problem results in stalling on pavement. Remove the air cleaner and check that the choke moves freely; carb cleaner may do the trick. You may need a Briggs & Stratton carburetor rebuild kit that contains the replacement gaskets and other parts you need.
