  • Briggs&Stratton 5hp

    Picked up a 5hp 4stroke briggs & Stratton outboard great shape has not been started in maybe 5yrs. Should I put a couple drops of oil in the spark plug hole before I try to start or just pull a couple times easy then go for it? Thanks for any help on this.

    It can't hurt anything to oil the cylinder and pull it a few times.

          Hey - Lawnmowers sit all winter and fire right up in the spring.

          The B&S is one of the air cooled ones?

            Yes air cooled sounds like you are Farting across the lake but runs real good.
