Briggs&stratton HP.

Postby SONNY » Tue Jan 02, 2018 7:36 pm

Does anyone know how to figure a BS 1450 engine horsepower??????---Think it's something like 306 cc??---The BS company won't tell you the simple number!--In fact they won't tell you ANYTHING about their engines! I really need to know what the simple number is!!! 7, 10, or what?--It's a fair sized dude, new engine ( 1 year old) won't idle, or run under load without half choke, then puffs black smoke, un-choke it a bit then it surges then dies!--VERY hard on the automatic clutch! thanks; sonny

Ran some calculation and came up with 9.9 HP at 3600 RPM. That's based on 14.5 ft lbs torque at 3600 RPM.

Edit. You didn't say what you planned on using the engine for. Just guessing the peak/maximum torque is around 2600 RPMs.

It's on my 1-year old Timber-tuff sawmill.---I don't run it hard, but I do cut at a decent speed/rpm. Thanks ; sonny

Have you cleaned the carburetor? For some reason small engine carburetors get gummed up if they sit for a while.

They don't put horsepower numbers on small engines much anymore due to a class action lawsuit years ago when they got busted putting inflated numbers on the engines.

That would explain why I can't find the HP., then!--I don't have any charts to compare anything to, so I am out here in the dark.
The carb on this thing can't be gummed up because it never sat more than a week at most, and even then the gas was either ran dry or drained, then carb ran dry.
The carb looks like a big problem getting off, but when the weather gets decent enough so I can stand it, I will take it off and see if I can find anything in it.---I kinda think some manufacturing material probably came loose and got in some port that can't be cleaned.--Carb lookd all sealed and no way in! thanks; sonny
