I am sure others may know WHAT ENGINE you are talking about but I sure don't and IF I knew, I might be able to help.

The first 2 things I would check is that the ring gear on the flywheel is in good shape and not all burred up. Next I would check carefully the alignment and engagement of the starter. It may need to be shimmed in or out a little. It might be binding up and not allowing the starter to fully retract once it is started.

the engine is a briggs 16 hp horizontal drive. engine number 326437 - 0252. the flywheel is in good shape. you are right in that the starter does not fully retract.

i did some investigating last night and i wonder if i have the right starter. it seems as though there are two, one being slightly shorter .

i need to confirm that i have the right unit before i start asking questions about shimming.
Can anyone tell me the briggs part number for the starter.

OK, I have not had one of those engines with a bendix type starter. What kind of ring gear is on the flywheel? What is it made of, aluminum, steel, cast iron?

I have a hunch that it is steel or cast and you are using a plastic (nylon) starter gear.

walt, the old one was clearly not nylon, however i left it with the starter guy to order me a new one and we both decided i did not need it back. the pinion is nylon. i have no idea what the flywheel is made of, how do i tell? are you certain that the 16 tooth gear is correct. i have also seen some 14 teeth gears?

while i am getting attention , the engine runs great for a while and after about 20 minutes it starts to bog down and then i have to choke it to stay running and then after that the engine starts to fade quickly and eventually quits. let it rest for 30 minutes and same thing. before i spend 160 on a new carb is there a good carb cleaner?

can anyone tell me what the flywheel is made of on the 16 hp briggs that came on the 7016H ? how many teeth are supposed to be on the starter bendix? the starter has gone through 3 nylon pinions. the flywheel appears to be in good shape and the starter is on straight.
