**Always follow the instructions in your repair manual when doing repair or maintenance work on Outdoor Power Equipment. Manuals can be found at the manufacturers website.**
In this video I perform a minor tune-up on a 650 Series Briggs & Stratton engine using a Briggs & Stratton Tune-up Kit. The kit includes instructions, a new air filter, new spark plug, 18 oz of 30W oil and a tube of gas stabilizer for 2.5 gallons of gas, and the stabilizer will keep your gas fresh for 2 years.
The kit is a great convenience because it includes everything you need for minor maintenance work to get your mower engine ready for the mowing season, or for storage during the winter. The amount of oil included in the kit is exactly the right amount for a Briggs & Stratton 650 Series engine, so it isn’t necessary to measure out the correct amount of oil, thus avoiding any risk of overfilling or under filling the engine oil. The fuel stabilizer can be used to keep up to 2.5 gallons of gas fresh during the winter season, saving you the expense of having to buy the fuel stabilizer separately.
I paid $9.99 for the kit at Home Depot.
