    Briggs and Stratton small engine care and repair is really the best for a beginner. It explains all the systems of an engine and how they work and have maintenance and basic repair tips and also more advanced repair. Its written in simple terms so its easier to understand. You can order one from a B&S dealer for about $20. Part No. 274041

    Sears carries Briggs, Tecumseh, and some Kohler manuals. They're all $10 each in Sears parts dept.

    Chiltons has a small engine book also. It covers many different brands of small engines. Has a lot of good basics in it, however it is hard to beat the OEM repair manuals.
