When an internal repair is needed on a Briggs & Stratton engine, you will have to remove everything from the PTO shaft in order to take off the oil pan to get inside the engine. The PTO shaft protruding from the base of the Briggs & Stratton engine usually has the drive pulley bolted to it. The drive pulley is the main pulley the makes a belt rotate at variable speeds and runs another machine's pulley.
