SOURCE: Briggs & Stratton Modle# 100000 will not stay started.

your engine is only running on the fuel you are pumping in, the carb. is not lifting the fuel on its own, maybe because of water in the bowl or dirty jets. You must take the bowl of and clean it out and depending on the type of carb. it might need a new diaphragm. Stephen.

SOURCE: I can crank my murray gas lawn mower 6.5 quantum

Sounds like you will need to clean your carburetor.
Sometimes you can get by with priming it a few times, and letting it
run a few times like that and it will flush the gunk out of the jets,
but most of the time you will need to rebuild the carburetor.
If the mower is over a couple years old, then I also recommend that you
buy and install a new carburetor repair kit, because the diaphragm will
get hard and that will cause it to be hard to crank.
When you clean your carburetor and remove the jet screws, count the
number of turns it takes to seat the jets from their original position.
That way when you go to put the jets back in, you know how many turns
they were in/out.
Please rate me, Thanks
Good Luck, I hope this helped

Maybe the engine is running with the fuel from the primer bulb (about few seconds), the carburator is not working and need to be removed checked and cleaned, the most common fail is a jet clogged.

Hi smithjazzy8...
Check your oil level, it sounds like it has got too much oil in the crankcase.
The oil level should be to the last two threads on the fill plug threads of the engine.
This is the main cause of white smoke coming from the exaust of the engine.

Toro self-propelled lawn mower: throttle doesn't work, I suspect I may have mis-connected the spring and rod connecting the swivel plate to the lever arm. Does that make sense to anyone?


Yes it makes sense. I was working on a throttleless one and it would not come up to speed, I had hooked it up to the wrong side of the shaft, or conceptually, the pivot point. It was doing the opposite of what it should have. I suggest taking a really close look at the attachment piece looking for wear or rub marks to indicate which hole it should be in.

I hope this gets you going.

I can push the handle all the way in, but I get very little speed from the mower.


Your throttle cable likely needs adjusting.
It should be fastened on the engine with a screw. Loosen that screw and adjust while engine is running then tighten Keep fingers away from underneath while engine is running.
