Chad Williams: These are great old motors. The only thing I hate about them though is the
way the starter is mounted. One of the bolts to the starter is way back
there under the flywheel.
It's a pain to get the starter bolt out unless you take the flywheel off.
Texassince1836: @Texassince1836 I only memorized the first 4 of the model. 422707 /
1522-01/ 9311295B is what the plate reads straight across
Bobby mitchell: @fnaguitarplayer9 they sound good for that, should get mine out of the weeds
Computer-Chkn: @Baldwin587 it does sound like Christine, your right
the5445: better rich then lean!
fnaguitarplayer9: ALSO, if you can't find a diagram, I can probably find it and send a link
Nick'sGarageDoorService: @fnaguitarplayer9 Wait a sec, there's actually an adjustable carb for
these??? lol I always thought it would be cool to try to adapt a V-twin
2-barrel carb onto an opposed...
frrd77: @fnaguitarplayer9 yea mine actually has an adjustment to make it run richer
or leaner. both of mine older models though and it seems like the newer
they get they don't have adjustments on them
fnaguitarplayer9: yeah there is. Theres a few different types on these motors. Wander if a
person could fill the jet up with solder then drill it to a smaller spec?
might not be the best option, but it might work. that would be neat! I know
these twins drink the gas though!
fnaguitarplayer9: @frrd77 thats what it is then, mine is an 02 i think, i can't remember for
sure. i don't why they'd made any carburetor with no adjustment, lol don't
make sense to me.
fnaguitarplayer9: @holmes730 it may need to be rebuilt if so, the rebuild costs around 25
bucks, thats what the kit for mine cost. they are great motors.
fnaguitarplayer9: @holmes730 does it have a adjustment screw besides the idle speed? if so
play with that, also i'd recommend new spark plugs, never hurts to put new
plugs in, i recommend E3 and for the opposed it should use a E3.10 which is
the equivalent of a champion CJ8. can't beat E3! i have a 12 horse flathead
that ran to rich, put a e310 in it, now it runs just right, haven't tried
them in my twin yet.
holmes730: cool man ima change em tomorrow (MONDAY)
motorboy171: @fnaguitarplayer9 wich one is it?
fnaguitarplayer9: that sounds about right, i know a 31 inch block is somewhere around 508cc.
haha i heard that! Great motors i love them! I need to get this one out and
run it, its been sitting a while, good old start video for the spring!!!
thanks for watching!!!
Texassince1836: @fnaguitarplayer9 422707 is my full model, the first 4 numbers are the most
important, the last 2 just describe crank orientation and starting system.
fnaguitarplayer9: all in inch lbs, hope this helps, and thanks for watching!!!
fnaguitarplayer9: @motorboy171 which one what? sorry if i missed something haha
fnaguitarplayer9: i hear that the valves are problematic on these motors, this only the 2nd
one i had, i've never really done much work on them, i rebuilt the
carburetor/fuel pump on this one 2 years ago. i think it idles a little to
low too, might be why its missing on one cylinder at idle. it smoothes out
once you give it some throttle. do you need a part number or just a place
to get it?
januaryman169: @DoodleBug314 Briggs & Stratton Short Case Starter: 3-5/8" long housing.
For most twin cylinder engines. Part #: SBS0008
Nick'sGarageDoorService: @fnaguitarplayer9 Have you tried the E3 plugs yet? Mine seems to run rich
as well. But if it improves the performance I'm going to do it.
frrd77: i have two of these bad boys both have dual exhaust from the factory they
sound a whole lot better with it to. it sucks you can't adjust the carb
cause both of mine have an adjustment
1899lpv: What is the future for this engine ?
Robbie Johnston: i have that same motor. do you know the head bolt torque ratings, and the
pattern. also the torque rating for the crank case bolts
fnaguitarplayer9: @davedoggy yepp i'll take any flathead over any ohv haha i could listen to
a opposed twin run all day haha thanks for watching
fnaguitarplayer9: @Bobbymitchell10 yeah haha
Baldwin587: 0:23 "Her Name Is Christine." thats all that comes to my mind!
Texassince1836: you know, if it smells really rich it could be a missfire on one cylnder
holmes730: i will
fnaguitarplayer9: I know what your seeing, When i first got this motor all the wires were cut
on it, i had to splice in the old style uncovered on "drivers side" plug,
so it looks like theres no plug wire on it! I had to watch it again myself
to remember that! I'd like to find another carburetor for mine, that has
the adjustment on it. I'd hate to use this to cut grass, I'd probably burn
5 gallons haha happy new year to you to, and thanks for watching it again
holmes730: ya and im gunna try the plugs bec ive tried rveything else.
Mike Rice: How much oil dose it take.
fnaguitarplayer9: @sjayjayw haha when i got mine (for free) the spark plug wires were cut,
the fuel lines were cut, wasps nest in the air filter, mud in the fuel pump
water in the oil haha after rebuildin the carb, it started right up. i just
wished there was a adjustment on the carburetor, it runs a little to rich
for my liking haha
januaryman169: I have a 16hp twin. I think they all run rich. I really like mine.
fnaguitarplayer9: oh wow i didn't know that. I'm not sure what year this is, its 2000
something if i remember right. thanks for watching!!!
Nick'sGarageDoorService: Haha! Probably.
ethan carter: Do you still have this engine?
fnaguitarplayer9: @holmes730 i'd also check to make sure both plugs are firing good, problem
i had with mine at first because ALL the wires were cut in 2, so i just
spiced the plug wire on one cylinder and it kept missin at idle, soldered
it and it ran better. but yeah plugs should help a great deal, especially
if you get e3.10's for it. they DO give more power too!
Charles Ray: I'm trying to locate the wire diagram for this particular motor. I'm
helping a friend modify another lawn tractor, would you know I could get my
hands on one?
fnaguitarplayer9: not arguing with you, but this one has no adjustment, i've had the carb
completely apart to rebuild and never found no adjustment except for idle
speed. I've looked it up that some models don't have a adjustment, i really
wish it did, it runs a little to rich for my liking. thanks for watching!!!
Nick'sGarageDoorService: @fnaguitarplayer9 Thanks. Can you make a vid when you put the plugs in?
fnaguitarplayer9: @NicksGarageDoor will do, just wrote it down on my list of videos to make
this spring/summer. Thanks for the suggestion, will do it by summer!
fnaguitarplayer9: yeah i got a paper that shows what each number/letter means on it. just
looked it up, cylinder 1 is part no. 271867 and cylinder 2 is part no.
271868 if you need any other part numbers for it let me know and i'll look
it for ya.
motorboy171: @fnaguitarplayer9 oh ok thanks haha somtimes i dont know what im talking
about ether lol thanks again
fnaguitarplayer9: @januaryman169 there good motors though. can't beat them! I'm going to try
E3 spark plugs in mine, they burn more fuel than regular plugs, might help
with this problem. thanks for watching
Bobby mitchell: sounds pretty good
Nick'sGarageDoorService: Lol I just watched this video again... It looks like your driers side spark
plug is disconnected. Oh, I bought a set of E3 spark plugs... Didn't help
with the running rich problem. I think the only way to fix it is to put in
a smaller main jet. I dont even think they sell them... Happy new year!
fnaguitarplayer9: @holmes730 i hear ya, let me know if it helps!
Nick'sGarageDoorService: Okay. I have a quick question. If I remove the bottom silver tin plates on
the engine, will that mess with the cooling? I thought about removing them
because they got really clogged with dried grass and oil when I bought it,
thankfully there is no damage to the motor.
fnaguitarplayer9: Yes, I'm just not using it on anything right now. thanks for watching!
