An easy way to remove the flywheel nut is it remove the spark plug, move the piston to Bottom Dead Center, fill the cylinder with some rope, like cloths line rope, put in as much rope as you can, the remove the flywheel nut. Remember the nut is LEFT HAND THREAD! Then leave the nut on the crankshaft even with the end of teh crank. Then hit with a hammer, a brass hammer would be best. Hope this helps.

the thing is, we did get the flywheel off, but two of the fins are broken. can they be welded back, or are tey too close together? Do you know where I can get a replacement flywheel?

You can look on E-Bay for one, or maybe one of the Sponsors. We run some of our Briggs engines with missing fins. It should not hurt much.

I use an old leather belt (you know, the kind you put around your waist so you don't moon everyone while trying to start your Maytag at the engine show).

Loop it around the flywheel and grip the two ends with one hand to hold it while wrenching with the other hand.

5S flywheels were pretty darn common... I would think you could come up with a few dozen between all the people on this site.

An un-elegant solution is to bust off the two fins directly opposite the already busted ones.

I actually have one jb welded on my 2cyl wisconsin, only thing I did was to make sure and apply a close amount of jb on the oppisite side to maintain ballance been on there for 2 years now, just clean clean and clean the surface some more and let it sit least 48 hours before running

Did you get it new right from Briggs and Stratton or a dealer?

My 5s smokes like a frieght train to.I recently took my 5s apart and there was oil everywere. The oil in the crankcase was mostly gas. And I checked the exaust valve seat and it very badly pitted, but suprisingly it ran fine. My guess is that the engine was flooded because of the leaky valve. Im going to recut the exaust seat tomorow and see if it fixes the prob.

Bought a 5S from a guy who junks tiding lawn mowers. I was sold by Sears as it has the MODEL NUM. I I.D. it as a 5S by Type number. It will need a little TLC. It is nit stuck but I think the valve are. It will be a keeper as I checked the serial number for the build date. Aug., 1950 same build date as ME.

This is not my first 5S. I have a complete set of number series B&S engines. Two 5S, 6S, 8, 8R6, 9, Two 14's, 19, two 23's one of which is on a portable Gorman-Rupp Fire Pump.

Got my 5S that was borned the same month and year as I running to today. Runs relavtive well but I really had to grind the valves and seats to clean them up. The part numbers for the valve still show-up on the Briggs price list. I ordered new ones from my local B&S dealer. We will see if they come.

Kent,

Would you have a picture of your Briggs model 23 on the Gorman-Rupp fire pump? Was wondering if it might be similar unit as one that I bought at an auction sale a couple of years ago. The engine is complete but I'm missing a couple of small items on the pump.

Bill,

I do not have a picture of the fire pump but I DO have a camera to take some with. I can take a picture of all four side. If you would PM me with your E-Mail I can send you some picture. I would post them here, but I do not know how to post on this site. What piece are you missing or do you need the pictures to know what is missing. Between Dad and I we have three of the Gorman-Rupp pumps. Two have model 23FB engine to which I have retro-fitted a Later B&S ignition coil. The other pump has a later B&S engine on it. A 23A FB I think. One Dad got with a fire truck he bought. The engine on it was made in Sept. 1954. The two pumps I have I got one in a trade for fixing a radio for a local fire district cheif. The engine on the one powered by the 213FB was made in Aug. 1953. The engine on the pump powered by the 23A FB was made in July 1958.

Kent,

Sorry I thought my pump had a model 23 Briggs, but when I checked my notes, see it's a model 243431, type 0706-01, code 7511031. Think that would make it a 1970's vintage if the first two numbers of the code are the year made.

I don't have the pump at home and going from memory (which obviously isn't very good) it's missing the pressure guage, the hose adapters on the pump and something is tied up with wire so probably needs a bracket of some sort.

Bill

Engine was built Nov. 1975. Pump was most likely completed by Gorman-Rupp in early 1976.
