Craftsman Briggs & Stratton lawn mower 450series, only used3 times and it will not start? Has oil, gas

Hi Elva

If the mower has been sitting for a while the plastic carburetors have a tendency to plug up. If I remember correctly the choke is attached to the governor. If you can empty the old gas and fill the tank up with 93 octane and let it sit for a couple of day's it may start. I had the same problem. Thx

Stupid question I know but is it 4 strock or 2 strock oil for a victa 450 148cc

If there is a place for motor oil on the engine, its a 4 stroke, and use 10w-30. If not, use a 40:1 mixture (gas to 2-stroke oil ratio). Not a stupid question... only stupid if you didn't ask, and did the wrong thing without asking first! Hope this helps!

Just helping someone who put gas in her oil fill. What do I need to refill oil? SAE 30 ?

Yes, the Tecumseh engine takes SAE HD30 motor oil. With a complete drain, it should take about 21 ounces to fill.
Good luck!

Tecumseh engine 148cc/snow blower/engine starts/but when i engage the blades /or tilt the machine it stalls help!!!!!!

You would think that most 148cc Tecumseh motors were pretty much the same. The design might have changed between the different models but seriously, they all have one piston, 2 valves (exhaust and intake), one oil pump, carburetor (which may have one adjust screw, 2 or 3), an exhaust, fly wheel, magneto, spark plug, gas tank, rings and of course the engine block. I didn't mention all the small parts for a reason. You really shouldn't need so much more info if you're an expert. "A two-stroke engine stalls when tilted." sums up the question nicely and gives plenty to work with to solve the problem. The only thing that should matter is idle adjustment for this problem. I know on larger engines I would say there was a problem with the fuel pick up. Either the fuel filter or the lines were clogged and the balance of the car made things move differently with gravity. However, this is not a car and is not in my expertise. Would someone more knowledgeable answer the question please? I'm having a similar problem.

PS. it's possible it's the float in your carburetor or the oil sender/splasher.

Screensavers for lg vantage

hello robert74,
The LG Vantage doesn't support GIF images. It does not recognize it and can not read it. As for images other than 240x400, the phone will automatically re-adjust the size and keep the ratio if you happen to select a different size image than the screen dimensions.
