I have a lawn mower engine model 98963 type 9388 code 97698891 is there a filter inside the petrol tank ore where fitted motor starts then after short period cuts out appears not getting petrol

I have a 5hp B&S and was experiencing fuel leakage problems
when I pulled the hose of the tank fitting to fit a tap, I found a small filter up the tube and held in place by the rubber hose
IT is extremely fine and about 3 mm in dia so it is possible that you could have one and it is blocked

My Mountfield Petrol mower cuts out after 5 or ten seconds. The fuel tank is full

Remove fuel car and re-test. If no problem, the vent hole in the cap is blocked. Need more info about engine type to help further.

I have a suffolk punch 14s the engine cuts out when I apply revs idle is ok only does when throttle is opened

try repacing the fuel filter it sound's like not enough petrol is gettng up to th rail for high rev's, could even be a weak pump but try the filter first & make sure the cover cap is sealed properly I use a bit of silicone or hermetite red as air can back into the system overnight if not sealed & you have to re-prime with the ignition key swithing on & off at sec intervals, actually try priming first with the ignotion key, turn till dash lights come on and hold for 4 sec's then turn off wait 4 sec's & repeat, you shoul hear the petrol pump buzzing each time, might just be air in the system or a leak & that will show it up!
Hope this helps !

Nannie what can be wrong with my power devil petrol lawn mower the engine wont keep running then cuts out petrol and oil ok

Check air filter, check screen in bottom of fuel tank,
New spark plug and also check the spark.
If there is a weak spark, the coil may need to be replaced.

If you have good spark, clean air filter, and clean fuel tank screen, then the carberator will need to be pulled of and cleaned out with solvent
