Recently, the engine has started misfiring and popping from idle up through full throttle. It is a Briggs & Stratton Intek 20hp Twin. I have checked the wiring and so far have found no shorts or breaks. In the process of troubleshooting, I decided to pull the plug wires while the engine was running and see what happened.
Jun 07, 2012 · This is where the head gasket blows quite often in the larger OHV Briggs. The smoking is caused by pressure entering the crankcase through the burned out spot on the power stroke and forcing oil back into the cyl. on the intake stroke due to the higher then normal crankcase pressure. Briggs should have put an extra bolt here.

As the title suggests, I've got a Briggs and Stratton Intek 18.5 ( 31P777-0293-E2 ) that starts fine, runs fine for about a minute to two and then dies. It doesn't seem to matter if the blades are engaged or not.
If your lawnmower will start up and idle, but then dies when you throttle it up, you might have a problem with the carburetor. The carburetor brings air and fuel together and mixes them in a perfect ratio for combustion. Fuel makes its way through the carburetor using several different passages.

This Briggs and Stratton INTEK 19.5hp motor was brought to me by a fella with a slow turning motor that wouldn't turn over. He had replaced the battery and thought he had a starter problem. It was actually the valve clearances which were the issue. The video shows how to diagnose and resolve a valve clearance issue with this style motor.
