Eric Oquist: Does anybody have any ideas as to why the Briggs and Stratton inva tech V
twin 20 horsepower 656 cc motor for the craftsman right on tractor would
all of a sudden not want to run after sitting for one winter?
Jr Rice: I have the same engine, and am having problems with it..... even though it
will run, it will smoke and bog down whenever you put a load on it... (i.e.
turn the deck on). I am told it may be problems with the governor but have
not had time to look at it. So just because you have it running, it STILL
may have something wrong with it.
daw718: I cannot find MEL-CO on ebay, at least anything to do with engines.
Andy Grimes: how much did you end up selling it for?
73rx3: me and my dad do that all the time on
Val Chaves: That happened to me 3 times, ready to sell this John Deere.
Paul Breor: i think i want to look into buying a motor online like yall did....
Funionjack: I have 25 Hp Briggs from a Murray how much would a complete rebuild (KIT)
cost ? don´t know whats actually wrong with it runs on one cylinder .
LynolsOffice: Sounds like it might be running too lean, either by the carb being
clogged/gummed up or not adjusted correctly, or it could be a clog in the
line or fuel filter. (I went nuts trying to get one of my engines to stop
doing that, and it ended up being a defective fuel filter, wasn't letting
enough gas through.)
Conner Pierrard: is that thwe weed eater in the video
Jovan Lopez: nice video intresting 5 stars
Zak Walden: Thanks for the answer i just bought one my self
xXbaambaamXx: what is MEL-CO
LynolsOffice: We hooked the positive (red) up to the terminal on the starter where the
wire would normaly go, and then we hook the negative (black) end up to the
block, just anywhere it would clip up; it just needs to make a good ground
with the block.
Chrisgarage1: i ordered an engine just like that, from mel-co on ebay and i was thinkin
the same that it might be siezed or a thrown rod, but when i got it one of
the exhaust valves went bad
ringtailedlemer: my 20 hsp v twinn only goes wide open im noy sure what the hells wrong its
an intek briggs on a scotts brand mower made by john deer . any suggestions?
LynolsOffice: If you can weld it, or otherwise make it fit, you can put it on there!
BUNCHofxs: be carefull, briggs engines DO NOT like to run open head. i had a rod break
in to 3 pieces and fly out the block. It was great but it sucked afterward.
MrShawn305: Don't leave it in there for more than an hour and a half as the stuff is
like an acid and can damage parts if left overnight or something. Take out
the parts, rinse them off in water really well and blow them out with
compressed air if you can to dry them. Replace any damaged gaskets and put
everything back together. It should run like a champ after. What model
engine is it? maybe I can get more detailed instructions for you.
LynolsOffice: Gaskets were about $9 each, rings were $30 each, and rods were $35 each. If
you find that it threw a rod, make sure you open it up and check for damage
to the block. I found that a lot of times the block gets damaged beyond use
when it throws a rod.
LynolsOffice: MEL-CO is a seller on eBay.
1skiinIan: same here. I saw it the other day on eBay
Arturaz1: nice engine could you show where you hook up the jumper cable tho?
corvettkiller666: get cherry bomb or hotrod style strait pipe.
Texassince1836: that 22 hp twin has always been troublesome...i fix peoples mowers, and the
22 is the one that always has the big problems
wheely132: @wq1299 he said that because they didn't have to run it on starting fluid.
Jake Kostelec: @LynolsOffice i need a motor the same motor for my zero turn any ideas
where to get one?
Dnuccio95ZJ: lol I made the same mistake with my 3.5 hp briggs. I got it started and
when I wanted to cut it, I didn't know what to do because I didn't have a
kill switch hooked up!! My dad was like "just tap the head with a
screwdriver so I did and it shut off. oops!!!!!!
camarolover1982: or a super 44 or sumthin i like being different lol i want somthing that
sounds REALLY tough
LynolsOffice: Bingo. I think it was $50 plus $50 to ship.
LynolsOffice: meh... I put some bolts through the holes. Good enough for a 30 second test.
Brandyn Gladish: i have that same motor and i rebilt it but she will not fire up if u can
help al make a video of what its doing thank you
Jeremy Proctor: @TheTazzyT i know but u know he was thinking it lol
charg2456: i need this motor..lol
LynolsOffice: Yeah, sure make a vid.
wq1299: It runs on gas?
mudpuppy4life: it runs like its not sick
camarolover1982: ok i have a question for u guys i have a 14.5 hp briggs and stratton ohv
thats on a project that im currently workin on and possibly have a vid of
it wen i get the exhaust on do u guys think that it is possible to put a
glass pack on it? please reply thanx!
cummins60: never kill the engine like that, totals your ignition,,
uncleben03: Pull out the spark plug wire. "What?" PULL OUT THE SPARK PLUG WIRE!!!!
LynolsOffice: Yeah probably. Your rod is probably melted onto your crankshaft, you'll
need a new connecting rod and you may need to get your crankshaft turned or
replaced if it's real scored looking.
pcblah: Look at the flames O_O wow
muddymowers: sounds like a Harley when it idles
LynolsOffice: A glass pack!? Sounds a little silly, but yeah I guess you could put that
on there if you wanted.
LynolsOffice: From user "Mel-Co" on eBay
MZEng100 .: Such a nice sound on these
ringtailedlemer: my vtek 20 hsp v twin wont idle just runs widew open. any suggestions?
suchfunstuff: You got lucky. The engine I got had bad rings.
