Did this video help you?

everett thornton: that is just what i was looking for.i'm rebuilding a 17 hp b&s engine and couldn't figure out where that part dad took the engine apart without me being there at the time,thanks for putting up this very helpful video.

jj parody: Friend has 14.5 Briggs that blew. I do know that he was running it about 1/3 to 1/2 quart low on oil. Ran okay when he mowed on flat land but blew when he was on a slope. Do you think the splasher would have been unable to reach enough oil if had been that low in the sump ... and on a slope?

buzzardsbay: Man, I love your videos. Like ALL of them. Clear, concise, well shot and easy to understand. Really appreciate them a lot. This one squared me away as I'm replacing a camshaft and governor slinger in a Briggs 190cc "Pro Series." And by Pro Series they apparently mean cheesy nylon gears on the crank and camshaft and plastic cam lobes as well. Brilliant. Long story short, the throw-out mechanism on the slinger broke off, got jammed up somewhere and it spun one of the plastic cam lobes 180 degrees. Amazing how hard these are to start when both valves are opening and closing at the same time. :-/ Anywho, your video, and about $50 in parts helped me put it back together. Thanks man! Keep up the great work!

Martin B: Nice video. Very interesting.

6771Randy: Now that was interesting!
I decided your channel is going to teach me so I subscribed for more like this!

Westley Bates: tht cam is really bent  how did that happen 

fnaguitarplayer9: this sump was off a 11 HP briggs model 25. will do! Thanks for Watching!

Guy Garic: is that an 8hp, check out my vid: slowest idling engines

fnaguitarplayer9: Thanks for Watching!

sallymaggiespotty: Good info.

joe18370: ever solve that slinger problem mine does the same thing

fnaguitarplayer9: I don't think it will work, i don't think it will be able to sling enough oil upwards to the cylinder, I could be wrong though. I have heard of people putting a dipper on the crankshaft, but you have to do away with the counterweight (sychrobalancer) which would cause major vibration problems. I'd be afraid either way that it would get to much or not enough oil, and theres really no way to tell. Sorry i can't help out more! Appreciate it! Thanks for Watching!!!

1941paco: Hey there fnaGP9, in your opinion, would this oil slinger design work as well, if the engine was turn into the up right position (horizontal shaft). I have looked at this option for awhile, but wondered just how much oil to put in the engine when its in the horizontal position, too much oil and the plastic fling won't throw the oil, not enough oil and the engine will over heat...........any thoughts you have on this would be greatly appreciated. thanks and super job with your videos!

fnaguitarplayer9: only time i've had the plastic oil slinger fail was when a engine threw a rod (which also broke the camshaft) it destroyed the slinger! but yeah, unless that happens i've never heard of one failing either! Thanks for Watching!!!

Texassince1836: Ive never seen a plastic one fail.

fnaguitarplayer9: it should be fine. they either go in or they don't haha thats a good idea!

Ian McCombs: Thanks. I lined it up good. When I crank it everything seems normal. So I think it's good. I temorarly bypassed the governor and user a spring to keep it at idle just so it doesn't rev insanely high on first start up if it is wrong.

fnaguitarplayer9: if you skim through my 4 part video series on rebuilding a 12.5, i show that in the reassembly, it should be in part 3 or 4, i could be wrong, they can be very tricky sometimes to get everything lined up. Thanks for Watching!!!

Ian McCombs: How do u go about putting this oil slinger governer back on as I rebiuilt the same engine. Wasnt exactly sure because everything was torqued to specs. None the bearings were scored or lose. But when turning it by hand there is a knock when u tun it back and forth. I was wondering if I put the governer in wrong and that's making the noise.

fnaguitarplayer9: thanks! no problem, thanks for watching!!!
