Briggs & Stratton
I have a riding lawnmower given to me free. The guy thought the engine had seized. My friend and I, novices, took it appart and realized the the connective bar had broken. The motor is a B & S 286707 electric start. I purchased new rings, conecting rod and engine gasket set. My question is that "the guy" also mentioned before it "seized" the engine was racing no matter what he did, he then was told to put a lighter oil in it which he did, then it broke and became mine. He was told by "4 other mechanics" that he need to replace the governor. Is this a difficult job and do I need to do it while the engine is apart or is it purely an external engine job?
