checking engine

Thanks everyone for all the help with my briggs and Tecumseh engines. I have another question. I have a Briggs engine with electric start. Its off machine so it has no battery hooked up to it. Is it possible to start the machine with a charger? If so, how.Don't want to get shocked.

Hate to inform you of this....But, The "machine" won't start without a engine on it.

Now, If you want to start the engine use the battery thats in the machine and a set of jumper cables. Put the positive lead on the starter post and just touch the negative to one of the engine mount ears on the pan (sump).

Doing this will throw a few sparks but wont shock you,
It's not a good idea to try jumping with a charger without a battery.

I meant to say start the engine. I don't have the machine. I did like you said . It tries to start, but stops. I took the spark plug out and tried to turn it by hand,very hard. Put some oil in spark plug hole. Turns a little more than before, but still hard.

Is this the same engine that you replaced the governor crank in ?

If not tell a little history on it and post some numbers.

No, its not the same engine. It's a Briggs and Stratton I/C 10.5 HP, model #28B700, type#1025-E1.Single cylinder,air cooled engine.The engine came off of a sander.

First make sure the coil isn't rubbing on the flywheel, If not then it sounds like you need to perform a tear-down inspection to find the problem.

Good Luck

Take the flywheel off and check out the alternator coil and magnets under the flywheel for a problem. May have something stuck to one of the magnets or a loose alternator. Since it has an electric start it probably has an alternator. Just a thought anyways.

I use the air impact tool, if it's just a nut holding it on.

Throw it in your car/truck and run it by a auto repair shop, Let them zap it off with a impact wrench.....

Removed the flywheel,magnets were damaged, the alternator was also damaged.Also noticed a small hole on top of the crankcase. Can that be repaired or not?

How did magnets and alternator get damaged and hole in top ? Must've used a tire tool to get flywheel off. or,
may have thrown a rod, I would take head off see what happens when you turn the flywheel.

The hole came from using the flywheel puller. Must have screwed the bolts down to far. Can the small hole be filled?

You didn't read this from me....


Cut a little patch piece from a aluminum can slightly larger than the hole, Ruff the area around the hole with course emory paper and bond the patch over the hole with JB-Weld.
