    this engine powers my Hustler Super-z. Got it back last week from “the works” service (plugs, oil, hydro, etc. Mowed once, about three hours operation. Today I attempted to start it, and no joy. Fuel is making it to the carb, and spark is good. It will run for about a second following a shot...

    I'm either getting an ISX800 or an ISX2200, 61". If the ride is half as good on the 8 as the 22 then I'm saving $2k. I asked the dealer to bring me an 800 with the biggest motor he has and that I wanted EFI. He said he's bringing out the carbureted 26 hp Vanguard 810 instead of the 27 hp Briggs...

    Hello Everyone - I'm debating on whether to purchase the OEM or try one of the after-market carbs for my Echo SHC-212. I'm curious whether anyone has had luck with after-market carbs and if so - could you provide a recommendation. Thanks in advance.

    I'm currently looking at 2019 scag and bad boy ztr's. I have mowed with the bad boy rogue 61" 999cc with the Kawasaki fx1000v and loved it. I know bad boys have not been comparable in previous years but also know that (new to this year) they now offer a similar sloped deck like the velocity plus...

    Okay folks, hoping for any information.... Problem: Mower bogs down under load. If you are idling it sounds perfect, once you move forward with any speed, engine sputters and wants to die. Also happens when you throttle up, even if not moving. Same happens when blades are engaged and you try to...

    I bought this about 4-5 years ago and until about 2 months ago never had a problem with it. Now it will not start for the life of me and with the filter off the carb I can look down into the carb where the choke is and watch it fill up with gas. WHat I don't understand is how it is filling up...

    got a 1991 2-cycle S21zPR. Have it running but it should be running better. Not getting enough power/rmp. I did disassemble and clean the walbro carb and did notice the governor spring was broken and unattached which I am ordering one. Could that keep it from not having enough rpm not under...

    Hey all, I have created this account because I have spent hours working on my edger with no avail. It all started with the fact that it would bog down really bad when trying to run it and after doing some research, I figured it would be good to adjust the carb. Long story short. I have...

    I need some help guys. I am stumped on this trimmer. Its my personal trimmer, I have two km units, this was used as a edger and never got as much use as the string trimmer. This year I decided to swap attachments and use this a lot more as a string trimmer. I put a new carb on it last month and...

    I'm looking to replace a carburetor off of my (old, but bulletproof) Gravely W/B. It is a Kawasaki FB460V. It was one of the most popular motors of the years across all mower brands. Unfortunately the Carb has been discontinued. It isnt quite worth replacing the entire motor if I can find a...

    I have a flooding problem with an older Craftsman 18.5 hp Briggs that I use with a second crew. The problem is massive flooding. I presume the float is stuck but the carb has a solenoid on the bottom bowl. I've never run into this before. Any suggestions as to how to handle this problem...

    A new neighbor down the street brought me a manifold and carb for a B&S TWin 422707. The intake (carb/manifold) assembly was left behind by the previous owner. I know that B&S uses the carb to determine the horsepower for it's Twin and Twin II engines. Is there anyway to identify the carb to...
