You can buy a Briggs antique engine repair manual that covers this engine plus a whole lot more. I think it is around $20. You can get it from their website or your local dealer or Briggs service center. Could be your starter/generator (used $50 and up). If regulator, about $35. Or maybe not either. Bad running problems could be alot of things. Try searching this discussion group for "power", "backfire" "governor" etc. Manual may help. Brent

NEED ADVICE ON IMPROVING PERFORMANCE. RUNS, BUT NOW, IN WINTER, IS BACKFIRING A LOT, AND IN SUMMER, GOVERNOR STOPS WORKING WHEN ENGINE IS HOT. LOSES POWER UP HILLS, ETC. ENGINE IS ORIGINAL BRIGGS 16HP 1 CYL. HAS BEEN REBUILT A COUPLE OF TIMES IN HISTORY BY PREVIOUS OWNER. CAN I GET A MANUAL ON THIS SPECIFIC ENGINE? ALSO, CHARGING SYSTEM DOESN'T WORK. COULD BE REGULATOR, BUT WHERE TO GO FOR HELP? IF ANY HELP IS OUT THERE, RETURN A MSG, OR EMAIL ME. THANKS.
