Need Schematic for Briggs Starter Generator

Recommended Posts

Pulled my Sg of my 3416 last night, had been acting up, noisy, but i figured it was because it was sitting out side in the rain for a week, although covered. Sprayed some contact cleaner in while it was turning over & seemed better, then a little WD40. Working ok, but now charge light comes on. I think I losened up some old caked oil that ended up on the armateur cause I get some light smoke out of it when I turn the key. I replaced the rear bushing a few years ago & keep the bearing oiled, pretty sure I replaced the brushed 1-2 years ago also, so hopefully just needs a good cleaning. Anyhow, if anyone has a diagram of the assembly it would be appreciated, I will take digitals as back up. Thank goodness finally stopped raining in New England, my town got 12" rain in 3 days, 3 old 1600-1800's Bridges over the Ipswich river are taking a pounding, but seem to be standing up. Kinda like the old tractors; they don't make them like that any more. :)

Per Al Eden the S/G brushes are different from the ones you get from an auto parts store in that they are designed to carry more current (amperage) for the starter function. Automotive brushes will work but the starter will not work as good. So, you need to find a set of brushes that are specifically for a S/G. Al is a club member. Contact him or one or our other sponsors if you local B & S dealer does not have brushes.
