    My Murray mower starts fine but then it goes from running high to low during the mowing process. I think this is called loping, but I'm not sure.

First check to see if you have good clean gas in it. No water. if you have good clean gas. then I would recomend taking the gas tank off wich should have a plastic carburetor mounted to it. after that is removed and free of excess dirt. take the carb off there should be 5 phillips head screws. pull the carb off gently while observing just how it all goes back together. you may want to take pictures. you will find a fuel screen that you should take off and clean with carb spray. also there is a fuel pickup tube clean that also with carb spray. a couple words of caution if using compressed air Do not carried away with it. also same with the carb cleaner to much of it in rubber primers is not good.

Push mower with 4 hp Briggs motot surges, small


If the spring has only become dislodged, and not broken, you just need to find out where it goes. Take a digital picture of the carburetor from the top (you may have to remove the plastic shroud). Take another from the side, and from wherever else you can get an angle. Take the camera and small mirror with you to a place that sells mowers. B&S doesn't change their engines & carbs very often. You just need to find any mower with a 4 hp B&S, or even a 4.5 to 6.5 will probably be similar enough.

Where do i find parts for my stanley mower?


Stanley Mowers were made by Murray. Most Lawn mower repair / parts stores have replacement parts for these mowers.

Even if you do not have a model number you can probably use this link (left side of page) to find your part.

http://www.outdoordistributors.com/Murray/Murray_Pushmower/Murray_Pushmower.html

If it is just an engine part that you need mose of these had Briggs and Stratton engines onthem and the engine model number and type code are on the air shroud just above the spark plug for engines 4 HP or less.
