Question about Troy Garden

1 Answer

Hp gas Hi, I have a Troy-Bilt, 21" push, walk behind mower mulcher. Model number is: 11A-436A711. It starts fine, but quits after just a few seconds. It has a new spark plug. I had seen some suggestions online that said to take the bowl of the carburetor off and then use a thin wire to make sure the small holes aren't clogged. My mower looks different than the examples online, and I don't know where to find it on mine, or if it's even the right fix for mine. Thanks.

Follow gas line from tank to carb. Observe bottom of carb. Remove screw holding carb bowl to carb. Clean bowl. Pinch off gas line with pliers. Ensure float falls down easily. Float up no fuel flow, float down fuel flow. Observe screw that hold carb bowl to carb, see if it has a whole thru it, clean with small wire, bread wrapper works good. Observe center fuel port, clean with wire. Remove pin that holds float and meter needle, clean port with wire. Reassemble. Ensure air filter is clean, oil is full, 30w oil, spark plug is clean and properly gapped. Replace air filter and spark plug once a year. Empty old oil out if any grey is observed in oil, this is moisture, can accumulate after winter storage. Clean out side of carb with carb cleaner to ensure choke can rotate freely. Always use Stabile in gas.
All newer mowers have a low oil shutoff.

SOURCE: I am replacing the spark

I'm guessing you have a standard Champion J19LM plug, which has a gap of .030. They come pre-gapped from the mfg. and usually no need to adjust them. Most of the plugs on these engines have a .030 gap. There are very few exceptions that use a .020 gap (such as the RC12YC). Anyway, here's a link to a chart I like to use for reference: (there's a drop down menu at the top to change engines, but the standard Briggs engine is the one here).

Hope this helps. James
