    If i spray Easy Start the loader starts first pull then dies... if i spray then start then spray every time it starts to die then it will stay running but then die when i stop.

    I'm guessing it needs a carb rebuild but i cant find any parts

    Briggs Vanguard? Clean up the carb--sounds like an obstructed main jet. Unless there are some extenuating circumstances, you shouldn't need any parts.
