Model 13 Recall Information
Important Safety Notice regarding Briggs & Stratton Model 13 Engines used on FunKart Type GoKarts.
IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTICE
BRIGGS & STRATTON MODEL 13 ENGINES ON FUN-KART TYPE GO-KARTS
AUGUST 8, 2002
This safety notice applies to the following Briggs & Stratton engines use to power fun-karts:
All 5HP Model Series beginning with engine numbers 1352XX
Only FunPower Model Series beginning with engine numbers 1362XX, manufactured on or before 6/22/95
Fun-karts using these engines are being voluntarily recalled by Briggs & Stratton because fuel from the engine can spill out if the fun-kart overturns, posing serious fire and burn hazards to consumers. Because of this possibility, we ask that you take the following actions:
EXAMINE the engine on your fun-kart and determine whether any of the above model numbers are indicated. The only FunPower Model 1362XXs being recalled are those manufactured on or before June 22, 1995 and distinguished by a two-inch tall plastic fuel cap. (See pictures and instructions below to locate model and date code identification.) Note that only the models identified above installed on fun-kart applications are the subject of this corrective action.
If you have a recalled engine, immediately STOP using the fun-kart until a repair can be made by a Briggs & Stratton dealer.
CONTACT a Briggs & Stratton dealer to arrange for a free repair. For your convenience, we offer three easy ways to locate your nearest Briggs & Stratton Authorized Dealers:
Use our website's Service Center Locator.
Visit www.yellowpages.com and enter "Lawn Mowers" or "Engines-Gasoline" in the Category search field and your Postal Code in the Location search field.
Call the Briggs & Stratton Automated Hotline at (800) 444-7774. This hotline is available 24 hours a day/7 days a week and features voice recognition technology to assist you in finding the Briggs & Stratton Authorized Dealers in your area.
