    I have a 6.5HP Briggs motor on a crafstman 21 inch that my neighbor left out all winter in the rain & snow. I'm trying to get it running. I am to the point where if I prime the engine it will turn over but then stall out once in uses the gas I primed through (2-3 seconds.) I know next to nothing about engine repair but thought this would be a nice little project to learn on.

    Any ideas what I should try next.

    Remove the carb. and take it apart, Clean all passages and the main jet with carb. & choke spray cleaner and re-assemble, Also clean the fuel tank out.
