The Power That Works For You.

Look For Relevant Emissions Durability Period andAir Index Information On Your Engine Emissions Label

Engines that are certified to meet the California Air Resources Board (CARB) Tier 2 Emission Standards must displayinformation regarding the Emissions Durability Period and the Air Index. Briggs & Stratton makes this information availableto the consumer on our emission labels.The Emissions Durability Period describes the number of hours of actual running time for which the engine is certified tobe emissions compliant, assuming proper maintenance in accordance with the Operating & Maintenance Instructions. Thefollowing categories are used:Moderate: Engine is certified to be emission compliant for 125 hours of actual engine running time.Intermediate: Engine is certified to be emission compliant for 250 hours of actual engine running time.Extended: Engine is certified to be emission compliant for 500 hours of actual engine running time.For example, a typical walk-behind lawn mower is used 20 to 25 hours per year. Therefore, the Emissions DurabilityPeriod of an engine with an intermediate rating would equate to 10 to 12 years.The Air Index is a calculated number describing the relative level of emissions for a specific engine family. The lower theAir Index, the cleaner the engine. This information is displayed in graphical form on the emissions label.

After July 1, 2000, Look For Emissions Compliance Period OnEngine Emissions Compliance Label

After July 1, 2000 certain Briggs & Stratton engines will be certified to meet the United States Environmental ProtectionAgency (USEPA) Phase 2 emission standards. For Phase 2 certified engines, the Emissions Compliance Period referredto on the Emissions Compliance label indicates the number of operating hours for which the engine has been shown tomeet Federal emission requirements. For engines less than 225 cc displacement, Category C = 125 hours, B = 250 hoursand A = 500 hours. For engines of 225 cc or more, Category C = 250 hours, B = 500 hours and A = 1000 hours.The displacement of Model Series 200000 engine is 305 cc, Model Series 210000 engine is 342 cc.

• Check fuel lines, tank, cap, and fittings frequentlyfor cracks or leaks. Replace if necessary.

WHEN STARTING ENGINE• Make sure spark plug, muffler, fuel cap and air

cleaner are in place.• Do not crank engine with spark plug removed.• If fuel spills, wait until it evaporates before starting

engine.• If engine floods, set choke to OPEN/RUN position,

place throttle in FAST and crank until engine starts.

WHEN OPERATING EQUIPMENT• Do not tip engine or equipment at angle which

causes gasoline to spill.• Do not choke carburetor to stop engine.

WHEN TRANSPORTING EQUIPMENT• Transport with fuel tank EMPTY or with fuel shut-off

valve OFF.

WHEN STORING GASOLINE OR EQUIPMENTWITH FUEL IN TANK

• Store away from furnaces, stoves, water heaters orother appliances that have pilot light or otherignition source because they can ignite gasolinevapors.

WARNING

Unintentional sparking can result in fire or electricshock.

Unintentional start-up can result in entanglement,traumatic amputation, or laceration.

BEFORE PERFORMING ADJUSTMENTS ORREPAIRS

• Disconnect spark plug wire and keep it away fromspark plug.

• Disconnect battery at negative terminal (onlyengines with electric start).

WHEN TESTING FOR SPARK• Use approved spark plug tester.• Do not check for spark with spark plug removed.

WARNING

Rapid retraction of starter cord (kickback) will pull handand arm toward engine faster than you can let go.

Broken bones, fractures, bruises or sprains couldresult.

• When starting engine, pull cord slowly untilresistance is felt, then pull rapidly.

• Remove all external equipment/engine loadsbefore starting engine.

• Direct coupled equipment components such as,but not limited to, blades, impellors, pulleys,sprockets, etc., must be securely attached.

About your engine warranty: (see next page for statement of LIMITED WARRANTY).

Briggs & Stratton welcomes warranty repair and apologizesto you for being inconvenienced. Any Authorized ServiceDealer may perform warranty repairs. Most warranty repairsare handled routinely, but sometimes requests for warrantyservice may not be appropriate. For example, warranty wouldnot apply if engine damage occurred because of misuse, lackof routine maintenance, shipping, handling, warehousing orimproper installation. Similarly, warranty is void if the serialnumber of the engine has been removed or the engine hasbeen altered or modified.

If a customer differs with the decision of the Service Dealer, aninvestigation will be made to determine whether the warrantyapplies. Ask the Service Dealer to submit all supporting facts toits Distributor or the Factory for review. If the Distributor or theFactory decides that the claim is justified, the customer will befully reimbursed for those items that are defective. To avoidmisunderstanding which might occur between the customerand the Dealer, listed below are some of the causes of enginefailure that the warranty does not cover.

Normal wear:

Engines, like all mechanical devices, need periodic parts ser-vice and replacement to perform well. Warranty will not coverrepair when normal use has exhausted the life of a part or anengine.

Improper maintenance:

The life of an engine depends upon the conditions underwhich it operates, and the care it receives. Some applications,such as tillers, pumps and rotary mowers, are very often usedin dusty or dirty conditions, which can cause what appears tobe premature wear. Such wear, when caused by dirt, dust,spark plug cleaning grit, or other abrasive material that hasentered the engine because of improper maintenance, is notcovered by warranty.

This warranty covers engine related defective materialand/or workmanship only, and not replacement or refundof the equipment to which the engine may be mounted.Nor does the warranty extend to repairs required be-cause of:

1. PROBLEMS CAUSED BY PARTS THAT ARE NOTORIGINAL BRIGGS & STRATTON PARTS.

2. Equipment controls or installations that prevent starting,cause unsatisfactory engine performance, or shorten en-gine life. (Contact equipment manufacturer.)

3. Leaking carburetors, clogged fuel pipes, sticking valves,or other damage, caused by using contaminated or stalefuel. (Use clean, fresh, lead-free gasoline and Briggs &Stratton gasoline stabilizer, Part No. 5041.)

4. Parts which are scored or broken because an engine wasoperated with insufficient or contaminated lubricating oil,or an incorrect grade of lubricating oil (check oil level dailyor after every 8 hours of operation. Refill when necessaryand change at recommended intervals.) OIL GARDmay not shut down running engine. Engine damage mayoccur if oil level is not properly maintained. Read Operat-ing & Maintenance Instructions.

5. Repair or adjustment of associated parts or assembliessuch as clutches, transmissions, remote controls, etc.,which are not manufactured by Briggs & Stratton.

6. Damage or wear to parts caused by dirt, which enteredthe engine because of improper air cleaner maintenance,re-assembly, or use of a non-original air cleaner elementor cartridge. (At recommended intervals, clean and re-oilthe Oil-Foam element or the foam pre-cleaner, and re-place the cartridge.) Read Operating & MaintenanceInstructions.

7. Parts damaged by overspeeding, or overheating causedby grass, debris, or dirt, which plugs or clogs the coolingfins, or flywheel area, or damage caused by operating theengine in a confined area without sufficient ventilation.(Clean fins on the cylinder, cylinder head and flywheel atrecommended intervals.) Read Operating & MaintenanceInstructions.

8. Engine or equipment parts broken by excessive vibrationcaused by a loose engine mounting, loose cutter blades,unbalanced blades or loose or unbalanced impellers, im-proper attachment of equipment to engine crankshaft,overspeeding or other abuse in operation.

9. A bent or broken crankshaft, caused by striking a solid ob-ject with the cutter blade of a rotary lawn mower, or exces-sive v-belt tightness.

10. Routine tune-up or adjustment of the engine.11. Engine or engine component failure, i.e., combustion

chamber, valves, valve seats, valve guides, or burnedstarter motor windings, caused by the use of alternatefuels such as, liquified petroleum, natural gas, alteredgasolines, etc.

Warranty is available only through service dealers whichhave been authorized by Briggs & Stratton Corporation.
