    I have two older lawnboys, one as you try to start it, the screw in the bottom of the float bowl leaks like a siv, and no gas to the combustion chamber (see dry plug), the other just stopped running and has no fire, where can I find parts for the older lawn boys?? they are both 2 strokes, thanks*trucewhiteflag*

    You can get most Lawnboy parts at any lawnmower repair shop. Or you can find lots of parts online.

    To know what the part numbers are for your Lawnboy, you need to go to lawnboy.com and click on "Find a part number". Then you can put in your model number. Look at the diagram and then get the part number.

    It sounds as though you need a fuel shutoff valve (not a standard part but needed) & a float valve needle and seat to solve the gas leaking problem.

    You might a new coil pack to solve the "no fire" mower, but first I would run some emery cloth over the coil and the flywheel. Then reset the gap with a business card. This might get your spark back.
