Shroud removal on Briggs single.

Recommended Posts

Tacey
I got a Simplicity 3410 yesterday, equipped with the Briggs 10HP cast-iron single. I know how the shroud has been known to get packed with mouse-nests. How much of a job is it to remove the shroud? I don't have a service manual for it. Thanks. Tacey

You'll have to remove engine for that procedure. Before you do that, you should try to remove the shroud around the cylinder fins on the starter side to see if anything is packed in there. If not then start engine and see what kind of air flow comes out of there at high speed, along with any debris. If the flow is barely there, things are most likely plugged up. If you get any debris flying out, it is advisible to remove engine and clean things up. You need both the Briggs engine book and Simplicity chapter on engine removal to get you whre you want to go.

You need to check the clearance between the engine and the battery/gastank. You may have to remove the engine to get the shroud off. Usually there are only 4 or 5 bolts (1/4 inch)that must be removed and shroud will slide off. It slides toward the rear of the tractor. Removing the shroud is easy, after the engine is removed.

I oughta just pull the motor. It's really greasy and dirty all around the bottom. i took a flashlight and looked as far in as I could, and i spotted a fair amount of dirt, grass, other crud, and a feather in there. BLT, where is this Simplicity book you mentioned? Is it on the Simplicity Free Manual site? Thanks for the help guys. Tacey
