    I am having a problem getting my mower to run. I had just finished cutting and suddenly had a loss of power. Engine finally just stopped. I changed the fuel filter as I had not done it earlier and thought it might be clogged. Still would not start. Changed spark plug, still no start. I have had mower 10 years and never a problem, always changed oil, now what??

    Should post this in the mechanical section. Do you have spark?

    Well it looks like a new carburetor is what I need. I have it coming my. It seems to be common that the alcohol based additives in our gasoline over time destroys the aluminum bowl and other parts of the carb. Thanks for your comments
