BRIGGS & STRATTON NUMERICAL IDENTIFICATION SYSTEM All Briggs & Stratton engines have a unique numerical identification system. Each engine is identified by a Model, Type and Code number. Example: Model Type Code 422777 1125 01 99052115 This chart explains the numerical model designation system. It is possible to determine most of the important mechanical features of the engine by merely knowing the model number.

When the switch is in the start or run position, the vacuum valve assembly is energized. This opens the valve in the vacuum valve assembly and allows the carburetor float bowl to vent through the air cleaner. The carburetor float bowl vents through the vacuum block assembly and vacuum valve assembly, Fig.
Section 4 GOV. CONTROLS & GOVERNOR Section Contents Page MECHANICAL GOVERNOR ............. . General Information .
MECHANICAL GOVERNOR General Information The purpose of the governor is to maintain, within certain limits, a desired engine speed, even though loads may vary. The governor spring tends to pull the throttle open. The force of the counterweights, which are operated by centrifugal force, tends to close the throttle.
Governed Idle All Twin II twin cylinder engines equipped for remote control are equipped with governed idle. A detent in the equipment control provides governed idle when the equipment control is moved to the full slow position. Pre-Twin II, twin cylinder engines equipped for remote control have provision for governed idle. Equipment manufac- turer’s control may or may not provide a detent for governed idle.
Remote Control Adjustment – Pre-Twin II (Type Nos. Below 1100) Horizontal Crankshaft CASING 1. Move speed control lever to full ‘‘SLOW” position. CLAMP SCREW 2. Loosen control casing clamp at governor control bracket or intake manifold. 3. Move control casing and wire in direction shown by arrow, Fig.

The sensor acts as a current limiting device in series WARNING KEY SWITCH with the 12 volt battery and warning device and/or stop DEVICE OFF switch. The sensor screws into a boss in the sump base and has a protective cap with metering holes that regulate the amount of crankcase oil that contacts the 12 VOLT sensor.
PRESSURE LUBE Engine Models 400440, 400770, 402440, 402770, 404440, 404770, 422440, 422770 and 462770, are equipped with a full pressure lubrication system with an oil filter. A direct drive oil pump supplies lubrication to all bearing journals at 10-50 psi (.0.7-3.4 Bar), Fig. 27, Fig. 29. The oil pump draws oil through a screened pick up in the engine base and pumps the oil through the oil filter.
A pressure relief valve located in the oil filter adapter, Fig. 31, or optional remote oil filter adapter, Fig. 32, limits the maximum oil pressure in the system. Examine pressure relief valve seat for proper seating. Seat must have no nicks or burrs. Pressure relief valve spring length is 1.125”...
Oil Pressure Switch (Optional) A 1/8” NPTF plug in the oil filter adapter can be removed to install an optional oil pressure switch. When the oil pressure drops below approximately 5 PSI (.35 Bar), the switch may be used to activate a warning device and/or stop the engine, Fig.
Oil Cooler (Optional) Some models are equipped with an optional oil cooler, Fig. 38. The oil cooler is mounted on the cylinder cover plate. Filtered oil is routed through the oil cooler through two oil lines from a special oil filter adapter. Forced air from the flywheel fan flows through the oil cooler fins dissipating heat from the engine oil.
