Hi all, I'm new to this cool site. I'm a mechanic with a large firm in Ohio. Today's query is this: What is up with these Briggs motors? We're two weeks into leaf cleanup here and I have three Little Wonders in here with siezed exhaust valves, bent pushrods, a valve seal that popped out, etc. This has been going on for two seasons now, since I started here. I've shortened the service interval to 15 - 20 hours and governed the machines down a bit and this has helped, but not solved this issue. I've called B&S twice now to get an answer or solution, but they are acting like they never heard of this. Little Wonder simply gave no answer at all and directed me to B&S. Anyone else experience this? I'm about to remove these engines in favor of Hondas, but if there's an updated head out there for the INTEK I'd like to save the cash. Anyone? -Hap.
