Briggs Flywheel Polarity

Recommended Posts

OK my apologies for bringing this up AGAIN but what is the process for changing the polarity in an existing flyheel? I am getting my 10 hp briggs rebuilt and want to add electronic ignition. The man said I needed a new flywheel that has the correct polarity (for an extra $200.00). I told him that I thought that you could send it out to B&S factory and they will re-polarize it in the correct way. How much will it cost to do the job and what is the adress to B&S??? Thanks for any and all help, John H PS I did a search using the following terms... "Polarity, electronic ignition,and briggs flywheel???

He said it was for a new flywheel. He did not know that briggs would do the repolarization. I must add that the shop is run by a group of Mennonite (similar to the Amish of Pa.) they are located in southern Md. they do not use electricity or have telephones. I'm sure they will be surprised about the information. People from all over bring their small engines to them! JH

        Over a year ago, you answered a question I had about the tool bar for my FDT. In your reply dated Dec 31, 2019  you said the spacer, part #16, goes in the bar to allow for up and down depth adjustment. does this mean the bolt has to be tightened at whatever depth desired or does the bolt slide up and down, allowing the lower hitch to free float?
         If it is tightened so the lower hitch and the bar are rigid, then is the depth to be controlled by the shoes? Or by the lift handle?
        Is there any kind of user directions for the tool bar? The Outdoor Power Manual basically shows how to assemble the bar but not how to use it
