Question about Garden

Open Question

I have a Victa Sabre 450 series 148cc B & S engine...9T702 Model 2129 B1 type 08012552 Code...have been thrown the task of mowing since Hubbie left me and have succeeded the past 4 times. But now it won't run. I have cleaned the spark plug and checked the guage (had oil on it) and looked at the carbi and air filter. If I put petrol into the carbi it catches and runs for a few seconds then dies. Even with the priming it isn't getting any fuel into the carbi. What can I do? Thanks in advance.

SOURCE: stupid question I know but is it 4 strock or 2

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!

Why is my 450 series 148cc briggs and stratton lawn mower engine running fine and then when it gets hot it runs with no throttle


Keep an eye on the oil level, it could be sucking oil past the rings and burning it causing the engine to run a bit faster. it may also have a small vacuum leak at the carb or manifold tube, make sure the carb and manifold gaskets are not leaking air. All combustion air must pass through the carburetor exclusively.
