    My home use 15 yr old 14 HP I/C OHV Briggs Model #287704 Type 1224-E1 powered MTD lawn tractor sputters and wants to quit at high power after 30-45 minutes of mowing. Reducing power and disengaging mower deck allows continued running. Noticed stream of bubbles flowing through fuel filter. Only...

    Hi y'all, New number here. I have a small power equipment repair shop. Was following a thread about Kawasaki engine hunting, popping, etc. Am working on a Husky Zero turn with this motor that is running lean, hunting/surging at idle and popping at full throttle and reduced power, and only runs...

    Mechanics just diagnosed my Scag WB 48in mower, it has original Briggs Vanguard V-twin 16hp engine (code is 9702141). Which means it's over 20 years old. Running fine, strong compression but burns a little oil over time. Finally it seems the carburetor(Aisan?) is DOA according to local mower...

I have a 27cc Craftsman trimmer for the house and this thing has been working good for me for awhile and then all of sudden this **** happens like magic... The trimmer had originally not started at all due to a...

    I received a call from a local repair shop that had my Husqvarna 128LD string trimmer. He said that he had to replace the carburetor, fuel lines, plug and fuel filter. I gave the required $20 deposit, and he said that the bill I owed was $138 totaling $158. Is this a normal charge? I thought it...

    I made some videos that I posted on Youtube that explain how to pressure test some common Stihl and Redmax Carburetors. If you have a pressure tester, it saves a lot of the guess work on whether or not your carburetor is the cause of problems you may have with your equipment.

    I have a Cub Cadet CC 760 33" walk behind, and I removed and cleaned the carburetor, but for heavens sake I cannot seem to figure out how to re-attach the link governer to the bracket control (pics attached) and carburetor. Please if any one can help. I have found "0" answers or diagrams on the...

    I am bringing you, probably, a simple problem lawnsite mechanics. I have a John Deere 652r that started acting up a couple of days ago and now it is doing it more often. What happens is the mower will run fine when it is cold for a long time then pretty soon it will start to surge a little bit...

    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 am replacing my carburetor on my lawnboy with Tecumseh engine. When I the intake off I saw this red tube in the engine. I am new to motor repair and don't really have a clue about whether this is supposed to be there or not. The reason I am concerned about is that the red tube that is supposed...

    Just thought I'd post a comprehensive how-to on rebuilding the Zama 2 Stroke Rotary (RB) Carburetors. We just use the kit that includes 4 pieces usually and if the process is done right, we have yet to get a carb working again on our 4 echo pieces with the smaller rotary RB carbs. I wrote this...

    Hey guys. I had an earlier thread about this same engine, and getting it running. After replacing the fuel filter, and getting a new carburetor, the engine fired up easily. Now I am in the process of cleaning the muffler. I currently have it soaking in water to remove a lot of carbon build up...

    Here at Russo, people are replacing their trimmer carbs and primer bulbs (mainly stihl and echo) left and right. What are some good tips to prevent early replacement and what typically goes wrong with them? Could most people fix them on their own?

    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...

    Hi guys -- really hoping someone here has had this problem or knows how to fix it! Don't ask why, but I recently bought a used Craftsman mower (model 917.388.930, 6hp Briggs engine 122K02 0577 E1). Yesterday, after priming it, it barely started, then sputtered for a few seconds and died...

    I recently bought an EXMARK Viking with a Kaw FH451V engine and it would not idle consistently when at low RPM's. If I set the throttle to halfway without messing with the choke, it will begin to run smoothly. If I pull the choke out about 3/4 of the way before I adjust the throttle, I can get...
