    I have a Briggs & Stratton 9hp Vanguard engine
    Model 184532
    Type 004601
    Code 96051649

    Since I bought it second hand, I have no operating instructions.

    When checking the oil, should I screw the dipstick right in or only insert as far as it will go without engaging the thread?

    Thanks for any advice
