Huskee log splitter problems

Postby samcarpen » Mon Apr 15, 2019 6:08 am

Mdl. LS401221TS with Briggs 104M02-0020-F1. Pulls starter handle out of your hand. During my L-head days, I was taught that mower engines required a blade to operate. I'm assuming that's still the case. What would be the correct engine for this splitter?

Thanks Sam

That engine appears to have a heavy cast iron flywheel. First check the valve adjustments. Now I have seen a few with the ACR bad on this camshaft too. Both will cause compression kick back as well a partially shear flywheel key.

As to if it is the right engine that 22 ton splitter came with a 190 cc engine and not a 163 cc. IE it should have a 6.5 hp engine if you want to operate it at full capacity.

Do you need the owners/IPL manual for this splitter?

yeah don't forget to check flywheel key too - have seen plenty enough of them with sheared keys even though they don't have blades
