Sounds like how my Briggs grass cutter twin acts. Choke to start always, but runs rich when its running.

Briggs Flathead / Re: Sealing a two piece oppy intake

The proper way to do it, in my opinion would be to buy a roll of gasket paper, an X-acto knife, and a hammer and just make the gasket. Place the paper on the intake manifold, use the hammer lightly around the edges to get the proper outline(if the edges on the intake are defined enough tapping it with a hammer will cut the paper), then use the X-acto knife to cut the bolt holes and intake runner opening in the gasket and voila, you've made a gasket.

Other Engines / Kawasaki FH580V questions
« on: August 03, 2015, 08:58:35 pm »
I have a Kawasaki FH580V twin off a John Deere walk behind mower on my tractor. I got the engine for the wonderful price of free. It does smoke, but I'm pretty sure it's valve seals or guides. But, my real questions are, are there ANY performance mods at all? And does anyone know if the exhaust flanges from a Briggs v-twin will work? Also, is the only way to bump compression shaving the heads or are there thinner gaskets available?
