Question about Craftsman 17.5 hp 42 in. Deck Lawn Tractor - CA Model
Briggs & Stratton 19 HP model 42E707 type 2631 E1
The choke mechanism seems to open and close properly. There was gas in the oil. I removed the carb, disassembled it and sooked it in carb cleaner over night. Blew out with compressed air the next day. reassembled using new carb and pump repair kit. New plugs, new filter, replaced oil and it starts right up but floods out. I made sure the choke was off. The filter is dripping with gas and if I let it sit a while it will do the exact same thing.
FYI...just thought I'd give a little back...
had exactly the same mower/plow w/ same issue !
mine is an older L-head from pre-1998...used....
19.5hp 3 screw type diaphram fuel pump carb...

B&S when you buy there part # 694056... = 10$
carb rebuild kit...they want to sell the manual too !!!

I made a pdf...with before and after pic's of
how to rebuild this carb...it's quite unique in fuel pump design and simplified governor operation...
running well this 19.5 twin - fan cooled...is like a 25HP !
the carb kit from B&S is generic...w/extra parts...
I have pic's of the actual ones used/needed for this
carb... Main jet is mis-labeled...it's a bowl vent !
There are no jet's to adjust on this carb...
only adjust is idle speed post the governor linkage !
