Briggs PowerBuilt 13.5hp help

Post by pwcopy » Tue Oct 16, 2018 2:09 pm

Model #218707-0373, vertical crankshaft, electric start, installed on Yard Machines riding mower. Need a step-by-step on on how to remove blower cover. I've searched the web several times, which pointed me to parts sites/manuals (no help) or pages no longer available. The bolts at the front of the cover (above the valve cover) have round heads. Round as in no place to hook up a wrench. Many thanks for yr help, PW

If the women don't find you handsome, they should at least find you handy.

Figgured it out. The bolts above the OHV housing on the front of the cover have hex key heads. They look like gun barrels and you can't see them without taking off the hood and grille of the mower, which I didn't want to do. After sticking of couple of hex keys in, I found one that fitted, got the cover off, cleaned the mouse nest off the ignition and now she runs like a clock. Thanks again, A. Spruce
