    More green and yellow

    Picked this up for free at work today. Making it my lil yard cart hauler and trash can transporter. Engine needs a new cam and lifters. The compression release is a goner. Still starts ok if I hand turn it past TDC. For free.. I will take it. D110, 234hrs.

    Mighty good deal, especially for someone who knows how to fix it.
    Does it have the Briggs Intek engine? If so, has Briggs ever updated the cam to make the compression release more reliable?

    Ain't it great when a decent piece of equipment costs more to repair than it's worth - and then they give it to you!! I ended up with several pieces of equipment that I was able to eek a little more life out of.

    One Toro push mower that I ended up with - the owner brought it in after running it out of oil and it seized up. Cylinder was scored really bad! He bought a new Toro and left. I put some ATF in the crankcase and got it broke loose. New head gasket and I ended up using that mower for another 8 years or so. Smoked a bit, but it cut well and was easy to push.

    Just wondering, do the Intek Briggs have a higher compression than the old flat head opposed engines? No compression release on those.

    Not sure on the specs. However the old flatheads did have a way to relieve compression. The camshaft intake valve duration was ever so slightly longer, allowing the intake valve to stay open a fraction of a second longer. At operating speed it had no effect on the power.

    It seems a valve adjustment alone is usually all a Briggs needs to eliminate a hard starting problem. That’s what people say here, my only experience involved bent rods. They were cheap enough, but Briggs was the slowest shipper I’ve ever seen. They arrived about 2 weeks after selling it as is.
