This practical, step-by-step guide advises on how to repair Briggs and Stratton engines, which power a wide variety of lawn mowers, garden tools, go-karts, air compressors and other light utility units. This edition has been updated to include current information on both new and old engines, as well as a new section on engine components and types. Since the second edition of this text was published in 1984, Briggs and Stratton has phased out conventional ignition systems and added two new engine lines. Both of these receive attention, as do phased-out models for those operating older machines. Other topics covered include information about torque specifications, running clearances, emissions control, and part numbers of redesigned and updated components that can be retrofitted to older engines.
