I have a 20hp V-twin Briggs and Stratton that has been giving me problems ever since I bought it as a project back in April.
I have replaced the governor, a gear in the transaxle and most recently rebuilt the carburetor but have had one problem this entire time.
The left cylinder exhaust header glows red. The right cylinder exhaust seems to run cool and pops occasionally. From low to mid throttle the engine runs smooth, but anything otherwise and it pops (from the right side only).
I tried adjusting the valves but nothing changed and I'm not sure if I did it correctly. Assuming I DID adjust the valves correctly, do you think there could be other issues at play here?
Thanks in advance,
