SOURCE: 31p777 18.5 hp briggs & stratton valve cover leak

Both can cause problems. It is recommend that you do not go on a grade more the 10% for your safety and the safety for others around. But if the valve cover is leaking this can lead to major problems if not repaired on a timely matter

SOURCE: 24 hp briggs engine quit running, will start on

If you disconnect the fuel line from the carburetor, direct it to a container. Then turn the engine over by the ingition switch. If you have good fuel flow, problem is probably in carburetor, if no flow then the fuel pump should be replaced. I was just thinking, if you see fuel coming from the tiny vent holes in the fuel pump, then pump needs replaced cause diaphram is damaged.

I hope this helps you get it going again soon.

Does my older lowes mtd riding mower have a fuel pump?

If it is a Briggs Twin it is part of the carb , if not it will be a vacuum pump somewhere close to the engine because it is driven by a vacuum hose hooked to the block . As the piston goes up and down the pulse of the vacuum moves a diaphragm in the pump to move the gas from the tank that is lower then the carb .
