    i dought you are gonna get away with flushing the engine which i have never heard of on a lawnmower. something else is wrong and you need to get it checked out if you are not capable of doing it.

    This thing needs a carb kit.
    Only one problem - it's not sold as a kit. It's all individual (little) pieces.

    When you add them up, sometimes it's more than a whole new carb, depending on spec.

    Keep this thing running, put stabilizer in it when you are done for the season, and if it's going to sit for more than 2 years with stabilizer - put the fuel in your vehicle and burn it up that way.
