    Need Valve spec for 18HP B&S Intek MODEL 31H777-0210-E1 Code 020130ZA WOW!!!

    Hey all,
    I have just spent 2+ hours searching the internet for the valve specs for my 18HP B&S Intek MODEL 31H777-0210-E1 Code 020130ZA (on a 2002 Troy-Bilt 13CX609G063 42" Lawn Tractor)

    WOW!! Why is this so hard to find? I found lots on B&S Intek 18HP motors but none that list specifically for the Model 31H777-0210-E1
    and there does seem to be some different #s depending on the Model of the 18HP B&S Intek model

    Can anybody please help me get the correct, for sure, specific valve specs for this specific engine...so I can move on with my life :-)

    THANK YOU EngineMan..

    I will take this at face value...

    But, with all due respect; where did you get this?
    I suspect you have been in engine repair for many many years and probably have a yellowing peice of paper from years ago with it scribled on
    But, why is this so hard to find via Briggs and Stratton?

    Thank you... I was thinking this was the 310000, but nowhere could I find the official cross reference: ie 31H777 to 310000

    thanks again

    ps I like your quote concerning knowledge..I came from the engineering world that says "knowledge is power" so few want to share.. its an interesting mindset I also reject.

    If you came across a Briggs engine number code breaker, and they are everywhere, you will see that the first 3 numbers are the capacity of the engine.
    Thus everything that starts with 31 is a 31( 0000 ) series engine They will have the same bore & stroke .
    If you looked up parts books you would again have seen 31000 series from code ??ooooo through to ??ooooo

    Keep this in mind as it will make life with your engine a lot less stressful.

    Thanks, I'm not really following you. When I Google "Briggs engine number code breaker" all I find is sites hat help you find the Model Number/Type/Code. I have all that:
    MODEL TYPE CODE
    31H777 0210 E1 020130ZA

    No where can I locate that Model: 31H777, ie specifically with that 'H'.
    and nowhere can I find where it says that 31H777 is yje same as 31(000).

    I can find plenty of Parts sites that list my 31H777 but none when it comes to Specs, oe valve specs.

    So what am I missing when you say "you will see that the first 3 numbers are the capacity of the engine." and my 1st 3 "s include an 'H'?

    Opps, should have been 2 numbers sorry about that
    https://www.jackssmallengines.com/ja...l-locator.aspx
    Down the bottom of this page is the breakdown of the model number codes .

    What exactly the H designation stands for is something that will only be found on the Briggs power portal and that is closed to all but authorised Briggs dealers.
    OTOH it is not needed to be known in order to run maintain or repair the engine.

    If you had gone to https://www.briggsandstratton.com/na/en_us/home.html
    Then hit the "download manual" button https://www.briggsandstratton.com/na...n_manuals_icon you would have come to this page.
    Typing in your numbers and hitting search brings up this page https://www.briggsandstratton.com/au...31h777-0210-e1
    Funny enough the very top line reads operator's manual covering model series 210000, 280000, 310000, and more English.
    Downloading that operators manual reveals a book labled Model 3100 -Intek -IC - Extended Life Series ( + 21000 & 28000 series as well )
    Page 5 lists the valve clearances as well as the Bore and Stroke for Models 21000 , model 28000 & model 31000

    Now considering you search the Briggs Support site with 31H777 and come up with this owners hand book

    your engine is an Intek and the manual states it covers 310000 - INTEK

    Is there any reason to believe that the owners manual the Briggs search brought up does not cover your engine ?

    If you expected the cover of the owners handbook to list each & every specific model & code number variation on the book covers, then the front cover would be 40 pages long of 6pt type.
