Briggs cam removal

Recommended Posts

I am in the process of tearing down a briggs 302431 and I can't get the dang cam and crank out. I have a feeling that the cam plug needs to come out, but not sure how to go about this. I'm not quite ready to start beating on it with the persuader... Here's the diagram: http://www.partstree.com/parts/?lc=briggs_and_stratton&mn=302431-0155-99&dn=6192002AQ Part I'm asking about is #591 on the diagram. Thanks, dAve

Cam plug gets pulled out so the dowel that the cam rides on will slide out. This will drop the cam sideways sothe crank can come out. Then lift out cam. You'll likely destroy the plug removing it so a replacement will be needed.

        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
